Sanctification of the Third Temple
I hope that the Jews understand the goals of the Third Temple.
The question may be from the Christians: why do Christians need the Third Temple?

First, there is not enough room for the Temple on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.

Now when he had finished measuring the inner house, he brought me out by the way of the gate which faced toward the east and measured it all around.
He measured on the east side with the measuring reed five hundred reeds by the measuring reed.
He measured on the north side five hundred reeds by the measuring reed.
On the south side he measured five hundred reeds with the measuring reed.
He turned to the west side and measured five hundred reeds with the measuring reed.
He measured it on the four sides; it had a wall all around, the length five hundred and the width five hundred, to divide between the holy and the profane.

(Ez. 42:15-20)


Perhaps some will say that there is a mistake in the Bible, and in fact these dimensions in Ezekiel's prophecy must be read not in the reeds, but in the cubits. But here in the Bible there is no mistake. Before this, it is written that Ezekiel went out through the gate, so the measurements of the wall around the temple complex, made outside, were to show the result is not 500, but 512 cubits, due to the addition of the wall thickness which is equal to 6 cubits.

This means that in this case, Ezekiel saw the measurement not of the wall around the temple complex, which was measured at the very beginning of the 40th chapter.
He saw the measurement of some other wall, enclosing a huge space with an area of 1440 by 1440 meters around the whole mountain.

"This is the law of the house: its entire area on the top of the mountain all around shall be most holy. Behold, this is the law of the house.

(Ez. 43:12)


If today we try to begin the construction of the temple described in the prophecy of Ezekiel on the territory of Jerusalem, on the Temple Mount, we will first have to liberate a vast territory from all extraneous buildings.
And in addition to buildings, this territory will have to be freed from any graves, because the dead body is the main source of ritual uncleanness according to the law of Moses.

And around the Temple Mount in Jerusalem are cemeteries, a huge number of graves!
Someone can allow the demolition of the Dome of the Rock and a number of historical monuments, as well as huge cemeteries, in which there are quite recent graves?

Cleaning zone

Actually, this reason alone is enough to abandon the intention to build Ezekiel's Temple in Jerusalem. Read more... )

The location of the Third Temple.

After we, with the help of geometric constructions based on the prophecy of Ezekiel, were able to accurately determine the location of the future altar of the Third Temple, and after we found on this very place something reminiscent of the ruins of the ancient altar, it is time to look into the details of the sacrifice of Abraham in
the land of Moriah.

Ruins of the ancient altar

First, we determined the distance from Be'er Sheva to Jerusalem, because according to Judaic traditions, it was at Mount Moriah in Jerusalem that the sacrifice of Abraham, described in Genesis 22, was performed.
And although the distance in a straight line from Be'er Sheva to Jerusalem is only 72 kilometers (45 mi), the actual route along the highway from Be'er Sheva to Jerusalem today is 100-112 kilometers (62-70 mi).

The average daily path of a person is 40 kilometers.
The donkey also moves with the speed of a pedestrian, and it is unlikely that you can make it go more than 40 kilometers in one day.

According to the book of Genesis, Abraham set out early in the morning, and came to the place of sacrifice on the third day.
In the remaining time he and his son were to build an altar, and then it was necessary to make a sacrifice before sunset.
Therefore, we can assume that the entire journey of Abraham took just over two days.  Go more than 100 kilometers to Jerusalem, he just would not have had time.

The distance from Be'er Sheva to the place we found in the Judean Desert is only 50 km (31 mi) in a straight line. If we take the same coefficient that we have by calculating the ratio of the distance along the line to the length of the actual path between Be'er Sheva and Jerusalem, then the real path from Be'er Sheva to the place we found in the Judean Desert is about 73 km (45 mi).

Given that in the time of Abraham the road could squirm more than the modern freeway, the real path of Abraham could be even greater, so the place we found is much more suitable as a possible place for Abraham's sacrifice than what the Jewish tradition tries to impose on us.

The second factor that could make the sacrifice of Abraham impossible at the site of the future threshing floor of Ornan the Jebusite is that there was a nearby city where people lived.
It is strange to imagine that Abraham would have decided to sacrifice his son in public, before the eyes of the townspeople, who would certainly have gathered to look at this spectacle.

But the most important argument against the version of Jerusalem as a place of Abraham's sacrifice, is that the threshing floor of Ornan the Jebusite in the Bible called the threshing floor of Ornan the Jebusite, and not called the land of Moriah, and not called Jehovah-Jireh.

I want you to notice that in Genesis this place is called "the land of Moriah", and in 2 Chronicles the place where Solomon built the Temple is called "Mount Moriah".

So, in previous publications, the drawings of the temple complex of the future Ezekiel's Temple were published and the coordinates of the altar of the future Third Temple were determined in accordance with the same prophecy of Ezekiel.  As it turned out, the Third Temple should be built in the Judean Desert, 30 km south of Jerusalem.

As was presented here, Ezekiel's prophecy of the Third Temple can have an appropriate architectural embodiment. In the prophecy of Ezekiel given, basically, the horizontal dimensions of architecture of the temple complex of Third Temple. Therefore, I can not insist on the exclusivity of my 3D model of the Third Temple, but the two-dimensional drawings I have published reflect the prophecy of Ezekiel in the only way. Other variants of the arrangement of the sizes from the text of Ezekiel are excluded at a detailed consideration of the functionality of these variants.

I intend to publish the architectural solution of the temple complex later, and now I want to talk about another important part of the prophecy of Ezekiel, which specifies the exact coordinates of the location of the future Temple. In accordance with the prophecy of Ezekiel, the Third Temple should not be built on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, the Third Temple must be built in a new place.

Anyone who has carefully read chapters 40-48 of the book of Ezekiel, was to draw attention to the fact that firstly, Ezekiel did not recognize the place that he was shown.

To make sure that Ezekiel's prophecy shows a new place for the Third Temple, it is necessary to build a rectangle of the holy allotment, on a map, according to the dimensions given in the prophecy.

"The holy allotment shall be for these, namely for the priests, toward the north 25,000 cubits in length, toward the west 10,000 in width, toward the east 10,000 in width, and toward the south 25,000 in length; and the sanctuary of the LORD shall be in its midst.
(48:10)

Here I must point out two mistakes made by those who use the American translation of the Bible. First, in the Masoretic text there is no indication that measurements of sacred sites are made in cubits. In fact, wherever Ezekiel measures large lengths on the earth's surface, unless there is a specific indication that the measurements were made in the cubits, it must be assumed that the measurements were made in the  reeds.

The second fatal error of Messianic Jews and Christian commentators of Ezekiel's prophecy is that they interpret the expression "towards the north" as "from the north side".

We have the book of the prophet Ezekiel, which describes the detailed plan of the Third Temple. In the book of the prophet Ezekiel, not only the Temple is described, but the exact place where the Third Temple is to be built is also indicated, and this place is not located in Jerusalem, but in the Judean Desert. To build the Third Temple is not required to clean the site on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, everything is much simpler:  the place for construction is empty, go and build the Temple!

In this blog, I will try to present a possible architectural solution for Ezekiel's prophecy about the Third Temple.
