Reentering Temple History - A
Part III:

Online Bible King James Version



          Again, although there are three Biblical Temples there is only one true Pool of Siloam. But as there are three such towers why is only one deserving of the honor of being identified with Siloam?

          Yes, Solomon's Temple is the only Temple honored with GOD'S Holy Ark called "Shiloh," "Shiloah," and/or "Siloam" (Genesis 49:10; Psalm 78:60; etc.). Thus, the name Siloam accrues to the Tower arising atop the Holy of Holies of the Solomonic Temple.


          Now when the Holy Ark had been removed and hidden by Jeremiah and Nebuchadnezzar laid siege to the Temple, Zadok the High Priest died and was entombed in that Holy of Holies. Thus, the Copper Scroll refers to the Solomonic Temple remains as "the fortress in the vale of Achor" and "Zadok's tomb."

          When Nehemiah returned after the 70 year Babylonian captivity of Jewry, Nehemiah searched in darkness, he didn't know where the Temple had been situated. Nehemiah then settled upon David's tomb in the midst of the Western Hill (between the north-south leg of the Hinnom and the Tyropoean Valleys). Thus, the second Temple was built atop David's tomb. This should not be confused with the phony traditional site mislabeled as David's tomb to give tourists something to look at.

          And, as mentioned, the unused Holy of Holies within the third Temple, Herod's Temple, eventually became Jesus' tomb.

          Thus, the Holy of Holies within each of the three great Biblical Temples in Jerusalem became tombs for very famous personages.


          The intaglio, the writings and diagrams, on the Temple's interior golden walls, especially on the entry tunnel walls, may differ from Temple to Temple. Therefore, these historic writings and artistry of the ancients will have to remain a mystery until the Temples are reentered.


          The Biblical Temples are of a common design derived from GOD. All followed the pattern of the Tent Of The Tabernacle, its courts, and Holy Things thereof.

          "And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying ... And let them make Me a sanctuary; that I may dwell among them. According to all that I shew thee, after the pattern of the Tabernacle, and the pattern of all the instruments thereof, even so shall ye make it"

Exodus 25:1,8-9
See also Exodus 25:40;
Hebrews 8:5.

          "... the LORD made me (David) understand in writing by His hand upon me (David) even all the works of this pattern"

I Chronicles 28:19

          "And David gave to Solomon his son the pattern of the porch, and of the houses thereof, and of the treasuries thereof, and of the upper chambers thereof, and of the inner parlours thereof, and of the place of the mercy seat, And the pattern of all that he had by the spirit ..."

I Chronicles 28:11-12

          And Ezekiel is told, "Thou son of man, shew the house of Israel, that they may be ashamed of their iniquities: and let them measure the pattern. And if they be ashamed of all that they have done, shew them the form of the house, and the fashion thereof, and the goings out thereof, and the comings in thereof, and all the forms thereof ..."

Ezekiel 43:10-11


          Today's world leaders have their summits, wage wars, play golf, and go fishing. But, all have avoided building the LORD'S House. They are obviously derelict in not following the Biblical avenue for world peace and tranquillity.

          "Take heed now; for the LORD hath chosen thee (the world leader) to build an house for the Sanctuary (the people): be ye strong, and do it."

I Chronicles 28:10

          "Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Consider your ways.

          "Go up to the mountain, and bring wood, and build the house; and I will take pleasure in it, and I will be glorified, saith the LORD...

          "... in this place will I give peace, saith the LORD of hosts.

          "... from the day that the foundation of the LORD'S Temple was laid, consider it.

          "... from this day will I bless you."

Haggai 1:7-8;2:9,18-19
