What if 'Temple Mount' is not the site of Jerusalem's ancient temples? What if the 'Western Wall' (Wailing Wall) is actually part of the ancient Fortress Antonia built to house a legion (5000 +) of Roman troops? What if the traditional location for Solomon's and the later temples is wrong?
So-called Temple Mount is the most contentious piece of real estate in the world. The Muslim shrine known as the Noble Sanctuary (Al-Haram-Al-Sharif) has stood there since about 691. But evidence that 'Temple Mount' was neither Solomon's nor Herod's Temple site, grows. Marilyn Sams, E L Martin, Bob Cornuke and George Buchanan have written persuasively on this and now THE PLACE provides scriptural contexts and foundations for this extraordinary view. What then is the Biblical picture and evidence that the Temple was in the old City of David, near the fabled spring Gihon, known also as Shiloah--and how important is it? THE PLACE will surprise, stir and challenge. Get ready to be stretched! See more under the Events and Blog pages on this site.
Writes Barry Buirski of Celebrate Messiah ministry, about THE PLACE;
'I Iove it, I love it, I love it !!! This book is The Place to find your Place! ..... I share the view that the temple in Jerusalem was more likely to be found in the city of David rather than where the present western wall is situated.'
From Marilyn Sams--author of 'The Jerusalem Temple Mount Myth'
'Ian Heard’s book adds a unique fictional aspect to the growing movement of people accepting the City of David location for the temples in Jerusalem. His perspective on how many biblical events converged at this location brings many insightful possibilities to the table. Especially moving are his heartfelt expressions of faith in and love for the prophets and the Savior of the world'.
