  4. Book Recommendation: Messiah's Coming Temple 

    This book is a helpful general introduction to various issues surrounding the temple of Ezekiel's Prophetic vision (Eze. 40ff). The authors take the vision as describing a future, literal temple which will exist during the millennium (as do I). One of the authors has spent many years studying the temple, and especially its architecture. There are helpful diagrams and photos of the models he has constructed. This same author also has numerous ties with various rabbis and groups within Israel who have an interest in the temple and temple mount so there is some good information pertaining to how these non-Christian Jews view Ezekiel's temple. One of the interesting aspects of the book is the discussion of the tension that both Christianity and Judaism have with understanding how Ezekiel's vision fits into the overall teaching of the Bible regarding temples and sacrifices. For Christians, the challenge is found in resolving Ezekiel's temple, and especially its sacrifices, with the teaching of Hebrews concerning the completed sacrifice of Jesus. For Judaism, the challenge is found in the differences in both the temple and sacrifices from those set forth in the Mosaic Law. It makes you appreciate God's hand in the process of canonization in that Ezekiel remained part of the OT canon despite these tensions. This book is a welcome addition to the too few resources which take the details given by Ezekiel at face value. I found the comparisons between the "Calendrical Sacrifices in Ezekiel" and "Calendrical Offerings of the Levitical Law" which is given in chart form on pages 150-151 to be of particular interest.
