I have a genuine question. I am wondering why it is that many Protestants look forward to the building of a new temple. Wouldn’t the purpose of such a temple be to sacrifice animals according to the old Law? Didn’t Jesus fulfill the law and its rituals? Isn’t He the ‘once for all’ sacrifice for sin?
I think the attempted construction of a temple would be a very bad sign. The Muslims already have a mosque on the site. It isn’t going to just disappear overnight and the Muslims aren’t going to volunteer to tear down one of the holiest shrines in Islam.
What are your thoughts here?
