“It has been my wish in this book, to take the reader back nineteen centuries; to show him Jerusalem as it was, when our Lord passed through its streets, and the Sanctuary, when He taught in its porches and courts.”

Alfred Edersheim’s timeless and classic account of the temple in Jerusalem in the times of Jesus Christ is an essential read for those interested in the histories of Christianity and Judaism.

Told by one of the preeminent scholars of the origins of Christianity, The Temple is an account of the daily life, rituals and the people of Jerusalem for whom religion was the most important part of their lives.

Edersheim also provides a detailed portrayal of the physical structure of the temple.

The temple is a symbol of the significance of Israel’s and Jerusalem’s roles in the beginnings of two major world religions and Edersheim explores this through use of testimony from the Scriptures, providing context for some of the more difficult passages of the Old Testament.

The Temple: Its Ministry and Service is a fascinating examination that focuses on the heart of Judaism. It is an enriching work that will provide any reader with thorough details of how the Jewish people functioned in the ancient world.
