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... )
