Herod's Temple

Anyone interested in the Jerusalem Temples will find an assortment of videos available on the internet.

Of particular interest to Christians is Herod's Temple, as this is the one that was built after the return from Babylon and extensively re-vamped by Herod the Great. Herod the Great is the one responsible for the massacre in Bethlehem and 'his' Temple is the one that Jesus knew and visited on many occasions.

The video below is in Hebrew. The music was written by Eyal Ben-Hamoria who has tried to reproduce the sounds of that era. I think that it is well worth a listen.

The video has been produced by Yehuda Vinograd

There is also a longer video in English giving a tour of the Temple.

Join us in a virtual tour of a 3D reconstruction of the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, as it looked 2000 years ago, at the conclusion of King Herod's expansion project. Based on Flavius' writings, according to the research of Dr. Joshua Peleg, Bar Ilan University.

An app. is available that gives the viewer the freedom to roam around the Temple. I am trying to find out more about that as it is not free.
