The Third Temple.


Fundamentalist Christians say that Jesus will not return until the building of the third temple in Jerusalem.

But what of the Dome of the Rock?

The mosque that stands on Mount Zion could not be replaced without starting a world war.

So it seems that this will never happen.

But what of the New Age?

What will its temple be?

Where will it stand?

The temple of the Age of Aquarius may not be a building at all.
It may be a mental construct which spans the peoples of the earth.

This is the New Paradigm - a vision of an immanent and holistic God.

Its foundations are in modern scholarship.

And its cornerstone is unconditional love for everyone.

  1. When you look at the fullness of use of the Holiest of Holies, you see that in the use of the word Temple applies not just to the stone building but also the Tabernacle constructed by Moses. It does not have to be a stone building, but possibly the elaborate tent of Moses' era.
