Are the biblical prophecies about a future temple merely symbolic, or do they point to a new physical Temple and even a restored sacrificial system? Are we to interpret Ezekiel’s description of a magnificent new Temple figuratively or literally? And are Israel’s current, ongoing preparations to rebuild the Temple truly a significant sign of the end times?

This comprehensive a study of the Jewish Temple helps readers answer to these questions and more. It also provides

  • a fast–paced history of the Tabernacle, Solomon’s Temple, Zerubbabel’s Temple, and Herod’s Temple
  • an enlightening look at God’s eternal purpose for the Temple
  • a concise explanation of why the Temple disappeared and why it must reappear

Formerly titled The Coming Last Days Temple.
