An extraordinary journey through the temple promised to David, was fulfilled in Solomon. The place where it was built in ancient times was considered the center of the world. In many ways, it has continued to be a center of history.
Today it continues as a center of great reverence as well as great conflict. An understanding of the Temple in Jewish life and history is essential not only to understanding the Bible but also to history and current events in Jerusalem today.
This program gives a basic introduction to the colossal achievement of Solomon's Temple and details its design, construction, meaning for Israel, and what went on there and why. Solomon's Temple was destroyed in 586 B.C., but through the use of modern computer graphics, the Temple is reconstructed visually to provide a contemporary experience of its ritual, beauty and grandeur.
