I’m doing an Old Testament review and once again the importance of the symbolism regarding the Tabernacle, the furniture and the vestments of the Tabernacle have come to mind. There are an abundance of links available on the subject. I will list some of them for your convenience.
Large Illustration of King Solomon’s Temple (click on this link – not the picture below)
The conventional dates of Solomon’s reign are circa 970 to 931 BCE. Rabbinic sources state that the First Temple stood for 410 years and, based on the 2nd-century work Seder Olam Rabbah, place construction in 832 BCE and destruction in 422 BCE , 165 years later than secular estimates.
Model of 2nd Temple (click on this link – not the picture below)
The Second Temple stood on theTemple Mount in Jerusalem during the Second Temple period, between 516 BCE and 70 CE.
The above documentary (***) shows the 1st temple (Solomon’s), the 2nd temple (Herod’s) and the current Dome of the Rock. Very informative.
