The Temple Pamphlet includes full-color pictures and diagrams of the First Temple (Solomon's Temple) and the Second Temple (New Testament Temple) in Jerusalem.
The Temple Pamphlet is an amazing full-color booklet with hundreds of facts about the Temple. In the First Temple picture, each of the furnishings are identified. In the Second Temple diagram, you can see King Herod's expansion of the New Testament Temple with the massive courts that were added before Jesus' birth. These were the courts where Jesus taught and prayed.
The Temple Pamphlet tells the 1000-year history of the Temple in Jerusalem. King David gathered gold and silver for the First Temple's construction, but his son King Solomon built the Temple on Mt. Zion. After the destruction of the Temple in 586 BC a Second Temple was built on the same site in 516 BC by Zerubbabel. Then just before Jesus' birth King Herod expanded the Temple Mount and enlarged the entire Second Temple complex. The Jewish Temple was destroyed in AD 70 by the Romans, but the Temple Mount remains.
