During a recent study through the latter chapters of the Old Testament book of Ezekiel (Chapter 40-49), I found myself getting overwhelmed with the details of the temple measurements. Though fascinating, the numbers were just too much for my brain to wrap itself around. So I did what any good curious Bible scholar would do, I checked YouTube for a video animation and Voilà! ..I landed on the above!
Several scholars and interpreters understand this vision (delivered by an angel) as a prophecy that will be fulfilled with a rebuilt temple, and Israel dwelling in the land according to its tribe. This temple existence points to a latter period in our future when Jesus Christ will literally reign as king on earth in a period known as the Millennial kingdom. I find it a fascinating accompaniment to the study of the prophetic passages of Ezekiel.
