Caligula

I happened to read a short article about Caligula and how he tried to erect statues of himself in the Jewish Temple. When I was looking at Wiki (which I know isn’t the most reliable source for info!) it stated this: Caligula ordered the erection of a statue of himself in the Jewish Temple of Jerusal...

Re: Rending of the veil

I was reading on a Christian Forum on the topic of the rending of the veil and what sorts of proofs there were of it. One person's answer really confused me, and I tried to look up his information to see if it was valid, but couldn't find anything. He said: Basically, the curtain that was torn was n...

Re: Rending of the veil

I was going back over this post as someone had recently mentioned Yoma 39b to me-- and I remembered all of the good info in this post. In the previous entries,I shared a couple Jewish viewpoints on Yoma 39b as I really liked what they had to say. I am posting a counter-argument from a Jews for Jesus...

Re: Bar Kochba's Temple?

Does anyone think it is possible that he at least reinstated some sacrifices during his rule (if he ruled?) there seems to be mention of this via Maimonides?

Bar Kochba's Temple?

Does anybody think that Bar Kochba may have actually built a temple? I saw this article below and it does seem to provide some interesting "evidence" that may support the thought that he did: http://www.biblestudytools.com/commentaries/revelation/related-topics/bar-kochbas-temple.html What...

I was reading an internet article on the second temple and towards the end, the writer dipped into the topic of those who didn't feel the second temple was the final temple etc.. here is a snippet: Some Jews during the second-Temple period believed that the second Temple would be replaced by a third...

Re: Another Temple Question

Semiopen, Thanks for your responses. From what I got out of your first post, most third temple thoughts come into play after the second temple was destroyed and the existing Rabbis needed to find some understanding in what was happening. So, of course, a third temple would be on the horizon, as you ...

Re: Another Temple Question

This is a quote from the Wiki page that I was reading: Jewish texts predict that the Mount will be the site of the Third Temple, which will be rebuilt with the coming of the Jewish Messiah. A number of vocal Jewish groups now advocate building the Third Holy Temple without delay in order to bring to...

Another Temple Question

What was the Jewish thought on rebuilding the temple? I know the Christian perspective-- but I have seen articles that state that the Jews believe it will be rebuilt at the end of days by the Messiah. What texts say this? Is their end of days different than the traditional Christian one?
