=============="The greatest trick Jupiter ever pulled was convincing the world he isn't worshiped."
- Nehemia Gordon
Proverbs 30:5 (AV)
Every word of God is pure:
he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him.
Looking at the early days of Christianity, in the days of Pontius Pilate until the fourth century emperor Julian the Apostate, the worship of yahweh (jupiter == jove-pater) was the competing Roman paganism. The false faith outgrowth from the Hellenistic period. This paganism would be rejected for the scriptural New Testament and apostolic faith of Christianity. faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, the Messiah of Israel, the Son of God.
Later I may add some material about Pilate and Julian. And we can go way before Pilate.
The Lost History of Jerusalem
compiled by Roger Waite - based on the research of Ernest Martin, the author of The Temples that Jerusalem Forgot
=============Antiochus Epiphanes was a Greek tryant who ruled Syria in the 2nd century B.C. ... He was violently bitter against the Jews, and he made a furious and determined effort to exterminate them and their religion. In December 168 BC, he defiled the Temple, offered a pig on its altar, erected an altar to Jupiter, prohibited Temple worship. This desecration of the temple by offering a pig flesh to a pagan god, Jupiter Olympus in the Temple of God is a forerunner of a comparable event that Jesus Christ said would occur in the last days (Matthew 24:15). - p. 75 (also p. 249)
The greatest siege that it sustained, however, was at the hands of the Romans under Titus, when it held out nearly five months, and when the town was completely destroyed, AD 70.Hadrian restored it as a Roman colony, AD 135,and among other buildings erected a temple of Jupiter Capitolinus on the site of the temple. - p. 113
"Though the Jews were allowed to visit the site of the former Temples over the Gihon Spring, Christian authorities added insult by placing a statue of Hadrian and one of Jupiter at the site."
'The statue of Hadrian and the idol of Jupiter have been placed where once there was the Temple and worship of God...an equestrian statue of Hadrian...stands in the place of the Holy of Holies [the inner sanctum of the Temple of God] to this very day'. Temples, p.211- 213, 215 217). - p. 125
How many people, even pure Bible AV defenders, are truly aware that yahweh is jove (jupiter) and is linked to the abomination of desolation? yahweh worship is intrinsically evil, paganism and demonic. I only decided to study this because a community of believers I know is stuck in the muck, and I wanted to assist.
Another writing of some interest:

While a bit cumbersome to read and follow, you can see some historical information on the yahweh-jupiter paganism connection.
2 Timothy 2:15
Study to shew thyself approved unto God,
a workman that needeth not to be ashamed,
rightly dividing the word of truth.
