Question: "What is the significance of Ezekiel’s temple?" Answer: Ezekiel was born into the priestly line (Ezekiel ), but he served God as a prophet.

In Ezekiel 40–48 Ezekiel sees a detailed vision of a grand and glorious temple. This lengthy vision has been the subject of much speculation and various interpretations through the years.

The end of book of Ezekiel is similar to Revelation as well. In Ezekiel 40 the prophet is taken to a high mountain, from which he can observe events in Jerusalem. He is met by an angel (a man with the appearance of bronze) with a measuring rod in his hands.

The following chapters describe Ezekiel measuring the city and the temple area. A reed, a measuring rod, is given him; and the commission is given him that with this reed he must proceed to the holy city, Jerusalem, and measure the temple. On the contrary, even in this very book the temple and Jerusalem are symbolic of something far different.

In Chapter 3, ve we read the promise to the church of Thyatira: "Him. Founded inthe Palestine Exploration Fund was, for its first 25 years, both the principal British exploration society in the Holy Land and a surveying body which was heavily dependent on the Royal Engineers and the War Office.

In the Book of Ezekiel in the Hebrew Bible, New Jerusalem (יְהוָה שָׁמָּה, YHWH-shammah, or YHWH [is] there") is Ezekiel's prophetic vision of a city centered on the rebuilt Holy Temple, the Third Temple, to be established in Jerusalem, which would be the capital of the Messianic Kingdom, the meeting place of the twelve tribes of Israel, during the Messianic : 4, km² (1, sq mi).

Jerusalem was established as a Canaanite city by the Chalcolithic period (ca. b.c.), occupying the southeast hill that currently bears the name "City of David.".Measuring Jerusalem: The Palestine Exploration Fund and British Interests in the Holy Land (Book) Book Details.
