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".

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.

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".
