The Mongols completely destroyed all of Azerbaijan (this was where the Mongols invaded). They destroyed all of their buildings, but this time they specifically destroyed religious buildings and symbols for Muslims. They also even attempted to destroy their economy by trying to destroy their paper money trade. They were disrespecting religions and wiping out an entire city, which is very barbaric. Finally, the Mongols also did some very bad stuff to Baghdad.
Jeremiah commonly referred to as the weeping prophet is considered to be a main prophet in the Bible. If we evaluate his Book in the Bible, we can identify that he is different in many ways from other celebrated Prophets.

The Trinity in Scripture The doctrine of the Trinity is easily one of the most controversial teachings in Christianity. It has been so since the early years of the Christian Church and continues to be so today. Part of the problem is that the word trinity is not found in the Bible. Even so the concept is found in many places and different terms that are used suggest the existence of God in three persons, known as the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

Sanhedrin comprises both the Pharisees and the Sadducee sects.
