After seeing this impressive and daunting edifice of the Jewish Temple, it gives one a sense of the audacity and chuzbah of Jesus, a carpenter from Galilee, who comes into their very midst, predicting its destruction and claiming to replace the function of the Temple. If people want to come into personal fellowship with the Almighty and Holy God, then they must come to him.
The scriptures go on to refer to us who believe in Jesus, as the new temple, built up together into him. What an awesome privilege. May it be so.
