Jewish Temple Imagery in the Book of Revelation

Series:

Robert A. Briggs

The Jewish temple continues to be a topic of considerable interest among Jews and Christians alike in spite of its being absent for nearly two millennia. This book examines the temple in the book of Revelation, which is where Jewish temple motifs find their scriptural culmination. Working from a backgrounds perspective, Dr. Briggs first traces various temple themes through the Old Testament and demonstrates how they were utilized in Revelation. He then explores the concept of temple in a number of noncanonical Jewish writings, assessing the degree to which sources other than the Old Testament influenced the Apocalypse's temple symbolism.
