I recently read, (sorry I cannot quote source or guarantee accuaracy). "It is estimated that if the proportion of Jews in the world today was equivalent to the proportion at the time of The siege of Jerusalem in 70 A.D., there would be 200,000,000 million jews in the world today."

Just offhand, those numbers sound pretty ambitious. Do you have the figure for the number of Jews in 70 AD as well as the global population?

If you check my Profile site under 3-MINUTE HISTORY you will see some population numbers for the Northern Kingdom, the Southern Kingdom, and the entire earth. The number of Jews who left the Babylonian captivity was only ~50,000.
