Understanding the Holy Temple Jesus Knew: The Background to Key Gospel Events [9789652208873]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review
This book provides a backdrop to the Gospel scenes which depict the Lord Jesus moving through the Temple Courts, a place where he performed many of his most significant acts. Although the Temple complex that Jesus knew was a very different one to that rebuilt by the returning Jewish exiles from Babylon, the site retained the name of Second Temple. This was because its builder, the Edomite King Herod the Great, was not allowed by the religious Jewish authorities to make any substantial changes to the Temple building proper. However, in the vastly enlarged and embellished platform on which the Temple stood, Herod was able to express his passion and creative genius for building. Following a full description of this platform, the authors begin at the Holy of Holies, the central focus of the complex, and follow Jesus and his contemporaries through the great Sanctuary of Israel. Stopping off at many points along the way, they reflect on scenes such as the Presentation in the Temple, Jesus' visit at age twelve and the rending of the veil between the Holy and the Most Holy at his crucifixion. Their exploration is facilitated by the richly detailed reconstruction drawings that accompany the lively text.
