Randall Price describes in his writings "Jerusulem in Prophecy", some of what he finds in the readings of "Inside Jerusalem: City of Destiny" by Arnold Olsen. Jerusalem occupies a chosen place in the divine plan of the ages, being distinguished as such in the praise of the Psalmist: "The Lord loves the gates of Zion more than the dwelling places of Jacob" (Psalm 87:2). Moreover, it is this city alone to which God descended, as the Psalmist again declared: "For the Lord has chosen Zion; He has desired it for His habitation. This is My resting place forever; Here I will dwell, for I have desired it" (Psalm 132:13-14). Consequently, Jerusalem attained a status as both the holy city and as the city at the center of the world (Ezekiel 5:5). Given such privileged position, it is no wonder that Jerusalem is mentioned more than any other city in Scripture: more than 800 times (660 verses in the Old Testament and 142), and appears in some two-thirds of the books of the Old and almost one-half of the books of the New Testament. While Jerusalem is its most common appellation, it also occurs under other names such as Zion, Salem, and Ariel, as well as symbolically in allegory as "Hagar and Mount Sinai in Arabia" (Galatians 4:25) and in prophecy as "Sodom and Egypt" (Revelation 11:8). Of the biblical references, 465 in the Old Testament and 24 in the New refer to prophecies of Jerusalem subsequent to the time of their utterances.
