Shape of Ezekiel’s Temple

Answers Concerning Prophecies and things future #18

Shape of Ezekiel’s Temple

Prior to the work entitled “The Temple of Ezekiel’s Prophecy”, by H. Sulley (see “Christadelphian Answers”, Temple of Ezekiel’s Prophecy), the generally accepted form of the predicted Temple was that of a square building measuring 500 cubits each way. This building, or rather series of buildings, being surrounded by a huge wall 3,000 cubits square (Ezek. xlii. 20; xlv. 2). The vast intervening space between the Temple proper and the wall being available for the thousands of annual worshippers (Zech. xiv. 16), while the Temple proper and the “Inner Court”, as in Israel’s day, will be only open to the Priestly officials.

The annexed plan (which is simply typical of many others) will give some idea of the Temple delineated; the wall surrounding it must be imagined some 1,250 cubits away on every side; the grounds between the Temple and the wall affording a magnificent rendez vous for the happy visitors. This space, it is believed, is referred to in Isa. lx. 13:

“The glory of Lebanon shall come unto thee, the fir tree and the pine tree, and the box together, to beautify the place of My Sanctuary, and I will make the place of My feet glorious”.

See also Psalm xlviii. 2; Is. li. 3.

Brethren who have critically gone into the details assure us that they have fitted in every measurement given by Ezekiel.

F. G. J.

(An esteemed correspondent says this paragraph makes the Temple far too small for a “House of Prayer for all Nations”, but that is not so. The space covered is the same as that of the circular suggestion. True, the buildings are smaller, but the “place of the Sanctuary” is correspondingly greater. The imagined need for multiplying Ezekiel’s Gates, etc., is based on a wrong interpretation of Zech. xiv. 16, which Dr. Thomas so effectively deals with in our next “Answer” — F. G. J.)
