Herod’s Temple: The Temple Jesus Knew
by Vision Video
Jerusalem, rich in historical and Biblical heritage, is the home of the Temple Mount, one of the world’s most recognizable and visited sacred sites. Now, travel back in time to see it the way Jesus and his disciples did over 2,000 years ago. They knew it as Herod’s Temple. We remember it as the Temple Jesus knew. Imagine the scene as Jesus expelled the moneychangers from its outer court. Picture the veil of the temple leading to its holiest chamber being torn at the time of Christ’s crucifixion.
Through the use of beautiful animation, the temple is reconstructed and we are brought within its precincts to identify with the experience of those living in Jesus’ day. We also are confronted with the horror of the fiery destruction of the Temple by the Romans in A.D. 70. Through it all, we come to appreciate the central role of the Temple in the life of first century Jews and Christians.
