Prince of Peace Adult Christian Education Invitation:
Christian Education offers Spring online class: “The Temple and Idea of Sacred Space”.
The idea of the Temple as a “House of God” (Beth-el) enclosing God’s most sacred and concentrated form comprises a theological arc that runs through the entire Bible, from the earliest Hebrew scriptures to the eschatological visions of Revelation. The Temple is both an architectural concept and a theological idea. It is impossible to understand the full import of Jesus’ revelatory message unless we understand the Temple and Temple worship in Jewish tradition of His time.
We begin by studying Jewish Temple architecture as it evolved in Hebrew scripture, from the earliest stone pillars of the patriarchs, to the transportable tabernacle of the wandering children of Israel, culminating in the magnificent sacred building constructed by King Solomon on Mount Moriah in Jerusalem. Prior even to that, the Garden of Eden is presented as a uniquely sacred space, where God communicates directly with man. The Jewish Temple uses architectural enclosures to identify gradations of sacredness: believers approached the inmost shrine through a series of courtyards, hallways, and veils designed to wall off and separate the Holy from the Profane. The innermost part of the Temple (the Holy of Holies) was conceived as containing the concentrated presence of God, to be approached only by the chief priest on certain days of the year. The Holy of Holies was a sacred and a dangerous space. Jesus changed all that. Rather than abolishing the Temple, Jesus radically re-formed it within Himself, becoming the new Temple, with His faithful believers as parts of the structure that will only be completely realized at the end of time when God institutes “a new heaven and a new earth.” Classes will be led by CE Elder Mark Weadon, Tuesday mornings, 10:30-noon, beginning 13 April and running through 1 June.
