The major events leading up to the destruction of the First and Second Temples in Jerusalem:
First Temple     
3316 - Yehoyakim ben Yoshiahu becomes King of Judea (II Kings 23:36)
3320 - Nebuchadnezzar, King of Babylon conquers Judea. He removes part of the Temple's holy vessels and children of the royal family take them to Babylon (Daniel 1)
3327 - Yehoyachim (Yechonia) ben Yehoyakim becomes king and reigns for only three months. Nebuchadnezzar exiles him to Babylon together with 10,000 people and the Torah Sages (II Kings 24:16)
