The Future of Tyre

Q. There’s a prophecy of the destruction of Tyre in Ezekiel 26:3-21. Has this prophecy been fulfilled or is there more coming?

A. The original city of Tyre existed partly on the mainland and partly on an island just off the coast of what we know as Lebanon today. The mainland portion was destroyed by Nebuchadnezzar and the island remnant by Alexander the Great.

Tyre is also mentioned in Psalm 83:7 which is still in our future, so I would say there’s more to come. Today Hezbollah maintains a substantial military presence there, and used it as a missile launch site against Israel during the past war.
