Answering Questions Re:

Tower Of Siloam
(Luke 13:4)
And Temple Tidbits

          General Layout:   Each of the three early Temples were of the same design but built on different sites and each was destroyed from within during sieges from without.   Each, of course, had a Holy of Holies beneath the Throne Room atop and above the Throne Room, i.e. above the Holy of Holies, was a tower called Siloam.   The Holy Ark was also called Siloam ... thus, the naming of that tower.   However, only Solomon's Temple ever held the Holy Ark.

          Beneath the Holy of Holies is the immersion pool which received water from the Temple reservoirs set to periodically flush.   Thus, the outlets of the Temple and Levitical City sewer systems were provided periodic daily flushes.   These entire water-sewer systems were built when the Temples were constructed.

          Burying The Inner Temple:   The Temple destruction from within began with the front porch being dismantled with its blocks being used to barricade the front and side entrances to the porch.   The wooden walkways (flooring) around the side chambers were built on "rests" and easily removed and placed atop the inner Temple's 6 cubit thick enclosure walls and ceiling to cushion the collapse of the side chambers.   The side chambers and exterior elevator shafts were then collapsed atop the inner Temple.   Finally, the Tower of Siloam was felled to land atop the 18, i.e. the collapsed side chambers.   Earlier the utilities Tower, the Tower of Furnaces, had been felled to secure the rear entrances to the inner Temple.

          Thus, each of the three Temples, although destroyed, actually preserved the inner Temple of each including the respective Holy of Holies, the Throne Room, the golden entry tunnel, and the dual golden staircases.

          Access To The Preserved Remains:   Access to the preserved inner Temple of each complex may be had from the respective water-sewer system.   That is, by retracing the still flowing water systems to beneath the preserved remains, the following accesses are:   (1) via the Tower of Furnaces (now blocked) which offers two approaches:   (a) from the sewer side of the gas barrier wall; and, (b) from the immersion pool; and, (2) via one of the two exedra beneath the golden staircases.   One exedra leads from the clean water reservoirs while the other exedra leads to the records storage vaults which should produce extensive archives.   Furthermore, the Copper Scroll identifies about 60 hiding places where Temple treasures of the Solomonic Temple lay hidden.   Thus, the preserved ruins of each of the three early Temples are awaiting reentry via their respective water-sewer system.

          It should be noted:   the water-sewer system had nothing to do with the collapse of the Tower of Siloam and the destruction of each of the Temples.   That is, the water-sewer system only provided water and an exit route for those remaining within the inner Temple throughout the siege of each Temple.   Therefore, today the water-sewer systems offer an easy way to reenter each of the three separate inner Temples still preserved unto today.

          The Decoy:   Of particular note is that neither of the three early Temples were built atop nor beneath the phony traditional mount.   However, Roman Emperor Hadrian using different design criteria did build his pagan Temple upon that site.   The Roman East Gate still remains below the more modern East Gate built by Muslims.   The water-sewer system for Hadrian's (a fourth) Temple still exists below that traditional site and appears to acquire water (its water source) from the sewer system of the third (or Herod's) Temple situated beneath the mound of the modern Muslim Quarter East of the Damascus Gate and inside Herod's Gate.

          Helena, Emperor Constantine's mother, apparently appropriated building materials from the unused, rejected Hadrian structures to build both her Church of the Holy Sepulchre (Jerusalem) and Church of the Nativity (Bethlehem).   The phony mount was later used as a Byzantine dumpsite following the Sassanid three year destructive invasion and occupation of Jerusalem.   Thereafter (20 years later) the Muslims replaced the Byzantines and continued to heap up that mount to build their Mosques thereon.   Meanwhile, the water-sewer system of both the Third and Fourth Temples (Herod's and Hadrian's) continues to flow out via the traditional Gihon.

          The traditional "Wailing Wall" foundation is part of a city East wall of the Second Temple complex.   Thus, those praying at that site stand with their backs to the Solomonic Temple's preserved remains situated about a mile to the West, i.e. West of the Hinnom (Jeremiah 19:2 KJV).   For photos see:
