The Messiah in the Temple: The Symbolism and Significance of the Second Temple in Light of the New Testament
by Roger Liebi
There are certain books every Christian should have in their library. Roger Liebi’s ground-breaking work is one of those books. It’s 655 pages include some of the most comprehensive research on the Jewish Temple we have ever seen. When Gary Stearman saw the book for the first time he was in shock at what he was holding in his hands. “His quote was, “Bob, have you seen this book?” I had not, so Gary began to tell me about it. He said, ” Bob, the Table of Contents alone is 20 pages long!” I asked for the only copy of the book we had in stock so I could write the ad copy and put it in our bookstore and Gary did not want to give it up! He made sure I knew that he wanted this book back the minute I was finished with it! And what Gary wants . . .
Roger’s book is relatively expensive but it is a hardbound, beautiful work of art, abundant in quality writing and beautiful, colorful pictures. I’m sure it cost a lot to print. When you hold this book in your hands, trust me, you will understand and you will not have any regrets over the price. Just wait until see the list of what comes on the CD that comes with the book! A partial list can be found below.
The sanctuary at Jerusalem during the time of Jesus Christ plays a very significant role in the New Testament. Matthew to Revelation teems with references to this glorious edifice of Antiquity.
Many readers of the Bible do not understand much by the terms such as “pinnacle of the Temple,” “the Beautiful Gate,” “Solomon’s Porch,” “the Sheep Gate,” and “the Sanhedrin.” These, and many other buildings of the Temple area come alive in the present publication. They are connected to Messiah Jesus, so that the life of faith may be refreshed and enlarged by it.
During the years 1967-2003 modern archaeology on the Temple Mount made huge progress. Through this, knowledge of the Second Temple could be extended in a grandiose way and reached a high point never before attained. The present work builds upon the rich fruits of these efforts and considers them profitable for the study of the Bible.
To date, there has not been a book written in which all the passages of the NT, which refer in some way to the Temple, have been synthesized extensively.
This book is dedicated especially to all those who are enthused by the same desire, as were those Greeks who came to the sanctuary in Jerusalem in those days, to encounter the historical Jesus there. They asked of Philip of Bethsaida (John 12:21): “Sir, we wish to see Jesus.”
