Understanding the Holy Temple Jesus Knew: The Background to Key Gospel Events is a companion volume to Understanding the Holy Temple of the Old Testament by the same authors. Its aim is to provide a backdrop to the Gospel scenes that depict Jesus moving throughout the courts of the Temple, a place where he performed many of his most significant acts. The authors begin at the Holy of Holies, the central focus of the complex, and follow Jesus and his contemporaries through the great Sanctuary of Israel. Stopping off at many points along the way, they reflect on scenes such as the Presentation in the Temple, Jesus' visit at age twelve, and the rending of the veil between the Holy and the Most Holy at his crucifixion. Their exploration in Understanding the Holy Temple Jesus Knew is facilitated by the richly detailed reconstruction drawings that accompany the lively text of this latest publication by the Ritmeyers.
