Full description for Temple Theology
Study of the Jewish Temple is very important at present - but often studies remain at the archaeological level. What has been less studied is the theological reason for the artefacts discovered by the archaeologists. Margaret Barker, already a published expert in this area, gives a general introduction, and then focuses on four areas of meaning: Creation, Covenant, Atonement and Wisdom. The book also discusses how Jesus related to the Temple.
