This title is part of the “Understanding” series of Carta:
“This book is a companion volume to Understanding the Holy Temple of the Old Testament. Its aim is to provide 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 fro 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.
Beginning at the Holy of Holies, the central focus of the complex, we follow Jesus and his contemporaries through the great Sanctuary of Israel. Stopping off at many points along the way, we 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. Our exploration is facilitated by the richly detailed reconstructive drawings that accompany the lively text of this latest publication by the Ritmeyers.”
