A Temple Beyond Measure

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Visions from the Lord can be filled with many details, as in Ezekiel’s vision of the restored Temple and the return of the people from Exile. You will find it helpful to refer to a translation converting ancient measurements into modern ones. Go first to the end of chapter 42, noting the dimensions of the outer court—an immense square, 840 feet on each side—almost the length of three football fields! If you want to make your own blueprint of the vision, take an 8½ x 11 inch piece of paper, folding it to make an 8½ square, each inch being 100 feet.

Yet even more expansive than the dimensions of the Temple described here, is the temple Jesus offers us— one beyond measure within which to live and move and have our being, his very risen Body.
