OF THE JEWISH TEMPLE ~ PART 3
EVIDENCE FROM TANAKH
of the Third Jewish Temple could begin immediately IF the Jewish
leaders ... and the Temple Institute ... understood that the First
and Second Jewish Temples were NEVER located on the Dome of the
Rock Complex; Haram al-Sharif.
This is Part Three in a Series to develop a construct proving that the Jewish Temple was NOT on the traditional location (referred to as the Temple Mount), but was in the City of David. In this message we develop the construct that the First and Second Jewish Temples were located on the original Mount Zion in the old City of David in the area of Gihon Spring―NOT at what is commonly referred to as the Temple Mount area (Dome of the Rock … or … Haram al-Sharif).

138 UN Nations adopted a resolution that referred to Jerusalem’s Temple Mount solely by its Muslim name of Haram al-Sharif … one of seven resolutions passed November 4, 2021, that single out or condemn Israel, with ZERO condemnations on the entire rest of the world (including China, North Korea, Iran and Russia).

THE TEMPLE AND MOUNT ZION BOTH CONNECT WITH THE OLD CITY OF DAVID
According to Scripture the Temple has to be in the confines of the old City of David―NOT in the area commonly referred to as the Temple Mount, or Haram al-Sharif (muslim Dome of the Rock platform).
“Nevertheless, David took the stronghold of Zion (that is, the City of David)” [2 Samuel 5:7] This shows that Zion is within the City of David.
“Arise, O Lord, to your resting place, You and the ark of Your strength … For the Lord has chosen Zion; He has desired it for His dwelling place.” [Psalm 132:8,13] The “ark of Your strength” is the Ark of the Covenant. The Temple will house the Ark … and Zion is God's chosen place for that … as well as the Temple placement.
“Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord. To the house of the God of Jacob … For out of Zion shall go forth the Law ...” [Isaiah 2:3] “Mountain of the Lord” is the Temple at Zion.
“Sing praises to the Lord, who dwells in Zion.” [Joel 3:21] The Lord dwells in the Temple at Zion.
“Now Solomon began to build the house of the Lord at Jerusalem … at the place that David had prepared on the threshing floor of Ornan the Jebusite.” [2 Chronicles 3:1] The Temple will be built in the explicit confines of the City of David (which is the same boundary of the Jebusite city.)
The stronghold of Zion―Metsudat Tsion―is located in the narrow perimeter of the 12 acre parcel of land known as the City of David. If Scrpture is our primary source there is NO other place the Temples can be located but within the geographic area of the stronghold of Zion.
Professor Birch from England rediscovered the real Zion at the lower edge of the southeast ridge in the City of David during 1875 to 1888. And … check this out:
“Now Solomon began to
build the temple at the house of the Lord at Jerusalem …
at the place that David had prepared on the threshing floor of Ornan the Jebusite.”
2 Chronicles 3:1
The threshing floor (see 2 Chronicles 3:1) is KEY to identifying the temple location. Its connection to Zion―in the City of David―certifies to the evidence of the true temple location.
