  • javascript: void video_jump(0,11);
  • 00:11 MOST VALUABLE REAL ESTATE ON EARTH.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,14);
  • 00:15 WE HOPE THAT AS YOU WATCH THIS PROGRAM,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,16);
  • 00:16 YOU WILL GAIN A NEW INSIGHT INTO THE HISTORY OF THIS SITE,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,20);
  • 00:21 IT'S PEOPLE AND IT'S PROPHETIC FUTURE.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,26);
  • 00:26 JERUSALEM AND IT'S TEMPLE MOUNT.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,28);
  • 00:29 HOLY GROUND TO JEWS, ARABS AND CHRISTIANS.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,32);
  • 00:32 THE BIBLE CITES THIS AS THE RESTING PLACE OF THE GOD OF THE UNIVERSE.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,36);
  • 00:37 YET, THE HISTORY HERE, HELD WITHIN ANCIENT STONES OF TIMES PAST,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,41);
  • 00:42 HAS MADE THESE 35 ACRES A CENTER OF CONTENTION FOR NEARLY 3,000 YEARS.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,67);
  • 01:07 HERE AT THE WESTERN WALL OR "WAILING WALL",
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,70);
  • 01:11 DAVID RUBINGER CAPTURES MOMENTS OF TIME WITH HIS CAMERA.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,75);
  • 01:15 PEOPLE COME HERE TO PRAY, TO MEDITATE, TO WEEP.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,81);
  • 01:21 IT WAS HERE, ON JUNE 7, 1967, THAT DAVID TOOK ONE OF THE MOST FAMOUS PICTURES EVER RECORDED ON FILM.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,90);
  • 01:30 ISRAELI PARATROOPERS HAD JUST RECAPTURED THE TEMPLE MOUNT.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,94);
  • 01:34 IN ORDER TO GET THIS KIND OF PICTURE, WITH ANYTHING OF THE WALL IN IT,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,98);
  • 01:39 YOU HAVE TO LIE DOWN ON THE GROUND TO DO THIS.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,101);
  • 01:42 BECAUSE I WANTED A LITTLE BIT OF SOME STONES.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,106);
  • 01:47 SO, I SHOT THAT PICTURE NEVER KNOWING THAT IT WAS GOING TO BECOME AN ITEM.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,113);
  • 01:53 ACCORDING TO THE BIBLE, THIS SITE FIRST BECAME SIGNIFICANT IN THE STORY OF ABRAHAM AND ISAAC.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,119);
  • 01:59 IT WAS HERE, IN APPROXIMATELY 2000 BC, THAT ABRAHAM CLIMBED TO THE TOP OF THE MOUNTAIN
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,125);
  • 02:06 TO OFFER HIS SON ON A SACRIFICIAL ALTAR BEFORE THE LORD.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,131);
  • 02:11 THIS IS THE REMARKABLE ACCOUNT OF THE HOLIEST PLACE ON EARTH.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,138);
  • 02:18 THIS IS THE STORY OF THE TEMPLE OF GOD.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,141);
  • 02:21 HERE, IN ORLANDO, FLORIDA AT THE SITE OF A RECENTLY CONSTRUCTED FACSIMILE OF THE TEMPLE,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,147);
  • 02:27 ZOLA LEVITT.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,149);
  • 02:29 YOU KNOW, IN THIS WORLD, WE HAVE SOME VERY IMPORTANT BUILDINGS,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,152);
  • 02:32 THE EIFFEL TOWER, THE TAJ MAHAHL, THE STATUE OF LIBERTY, THE WALL OF CHINA.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,157);
  • 02:37 BUT NO PEOPLE HAS RELATED TO A CONSTRUCTION LONGER THAN THE JEWISH PEOPLE TO THEIR TEMPLE,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,166);
  • 02:47 THEIR TEMPLE SITE, THEIR TEMPLE MOUNT, A 3,000 YEAR RELATIONSHIP.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,174);
  • 02:54 JERUSALEM, THE CITY OF GOLD.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,178);
  • 02:59 HERE AT THE SOUTHERN WALL OF THE TEMPLE MOUNT,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,181);
  • 03:01 WORLD-RENOWNED ARCHAEOLOGIST, DANNY BAHAT DESCENDS THE STEPS OF THE SITE
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,186);
  • 03:07 THAT HE HAS STUDIED FOR 25 YEARS.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,188);
  • 03:09 EACH STEP IS A REMINDER OF THE BIBLICAL PROPHETS AND KINGS WHO HAVE CALLED THIS PLACE
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,194);
  • 03:15 THE MOUNTAIN OF THE LORD, MOUNT MORIAH.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,198);
  • 03:19 THIS MOUNTAIN WAS A PLACE WHERE IN THE 23rd CENTURY B.C.,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,203);
  • 03:23 WHICH IS ABOUT 4,300 YEARS AGO, SOME BURIAL CAVES WERE EXCAVATED INTO THE GROUND.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,209);
  • 03:30 THOSE BURIAL CAVES ARE ESPECIALLY IMPORTANT SINCE THEY DATE FROM A TIME
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,214);
  • 03:34 WHERE TOMBS OF PATRIARCHS OF TRIBES, OF CLANS, ANCIENT ANCESTORS WERE BURIED.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,223);
  • 03:43 AND THAT'S ACTUALLY [WHEN] THE PLACE BECAME SANCTIFIED.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,226);
  • 03:46 IN OTHER WORDS, 500 YEARS BEFORE ABRAHAM APPEARED,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,229);
  • 03:50 WHICH IS ASSUMED TO BE OF ABRAHAM, 500 YEARS BEFORE HIM,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,233);
  • 03:54 ALREADY THE MOUNTAIN BECAME A HOLY MOUNTAIN
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,235);
  • 03:56 AND THEREFORE WE UNDERSTAND WHAT IS WRITTEN IN GENESIS SAYING
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,238);
  • 03:58 THAT ACTUALLY ABRAHAM WAS SHOWN THE MOUNTAIN BY GOD WHEN HE TOOK TO SACRIFICE ISAAC.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,245);
  • 04:06 AND THEY CAME TO THE PLACE WHICH GOD HAD TOLD HIM OF,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,248);
  • 04:09 AND ABRAHAM BUILT AN ALTAR THERE, AND LAID THE WOOD IN ORDER,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,252);
  • 04:12 AND BOUND ISAAC, HIS SON, AND LAID HIM ON THE ALTAR UPON THE WOOD.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,258);
  • 04:18 GOD WOULD PROVIDE A RAM AS A SUBSTITUTE FOR THE SACRIFICE.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,263);
  • 04:24 AND THE RAM'S HORN, WHICH HAD BEEN CAUGHT IN A THICKET,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,266);
  • 04:27 WOULD BECOME THE SYMBOL OF LIBERATION THROUGHOUT THE AGES TO COME.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,273);
  • 04:34 AS SEEN FROM BELOW, IN THE KIDRON VALLEY,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,276);
  • 04:37 THE TEMPLE MOUNT LOOKS LIKE THIS TODAY.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,279);
  • 04:39 WE KNOW LITTLE OF HOW IT APPEARED BEFORE KING DAVID,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,282);
  • 04:43 BUT, THE BOOK OF GENESIS TELLS US THAT IN 1900 B.C.,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,286);
  • 04:47 KING MELCHIZEDEK RULED THE CITY OF SALEM.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,290);
  • 04:50 NEARLY 1,000 YEARS PASSED BEFORE DAVID, IN 990 B.C.,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,294);
  • 04:54 CHOSE THE SITE OF A THRESHING FLOOR, ON TOP OF THIS MOUNTAIN,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,298);
  • 04:58 AS THE PLACE FOR A FUTURE TEMPLE TO THE LORD.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,301);
  • 05:02 THE OWNER OF THE SITE, ARAUNAH, THE JEBUSITE,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,304);
  • 05:05 OFFERED THE SITE TO DAVID AS A GIFT, BUT DAVID REFUSED.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,308);
  • 05:09 I WILL SURELY BUY IT OF THEE AT A PRICE:
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,310);
  • 05:11 NEITHER WILL I OFFER BURNT OFFERINGS UNTO THE LORD MY GOD
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,314);
  • 05:14 OF THAT WHICH DOTH COST ME NOTHING.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,315);
  • 05:16 SO DAVID BOUGHT THE THRESHING FLOOR AND THE OXEN FOR FIFTY SHEKELS OF SILVER.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,321);
  • 05:22 AND DAVID BUILT THERE AN ALTAR UNTO THE LORD,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,324);
  • 05:24 AND OFFERED BURNT OFFERINGS AND PEACE OFFERINGS.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,329);
  • 05:29 GOD HAD ALREADY PROVEN HIMSELF TO THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,332);
  • 05:32 IN THEIR FORTY YEAR SOJOURN FROM EGYPT TO THE PROMISED LAND.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,335);
  • 05:36 THE ARK OF THE COVENANT WOULD BECOME THE MOST TREASURED AND SACRED SYMBOL
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,340);
  • 05:40 OF JEHOVAH'S PRESENCE AMONG THEM.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,342);
  • 05:42 IT HAD TRAVELED IN A TEMPORARY PLACE OF WORSHIP, A TABERNACLE.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,345);
  • 05:46 BUT, IT WOULD NOW FIND ITS WAY TO A FINAL RESTING PLACE, ATOP THE MOUNTAIN.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,352);
  • 05:52 DAVID DANCED BEFORE THE LORD AS THE PROCESSION SNAKED ITS WAY THROUGH THE CITY
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,357);
  • 05:58 TO THE MOUNTAIN OF THE LORD.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,359);
  • 05:59 IN TIME, DAVID WOULD SEEK A MORE PLEASING HOUSE FOR HIS GOD.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,363);
  • 06:04 BUT THE ACTUAL TASK OF BUILDING THE TEMPLE WOULD BE PLACED IN THE HANDS OF HIS SON, SOLOMON.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,370);
  • 06:11 ARISE THEREFORE, AND BUILD YE THE SANCTUARY OF THE LORD GOD,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,374);
  • 06:14 TO BRING THE ARK OF THE COVENANT OF THE LORD, AND THE HOLY VESSELS OF GOD,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,378);
  • 06:18 INTO THE HOUSE THAT IS TO BE BUILT TO THE NAME OF THE LORD.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,383);
  • 06:24 IT TOOK SEVEN YEARS TO BUILD, 80,000 STONE CUTTERS,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,389);
  • 06:30 3,300 FOREMEN AND CEDAR WOOD BROUGHT ALL THE WAY FROM LEBANON.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,395);
  • 06:36 SOLOMON COVERED THE INSIDE OF THE TEMPLE WITH PURE GOLD.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,400);
  • 06:40 THE MAGNIFICENT STRUCTURE CONSISTED OF A COURTYARD,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,403);
  • 06:43 A SANCTUARY AND AN INNER SANCTUARY CALLED "THE MOST HOLY PLACE".
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,408);
  • 06:48 THE ARK OF THE COVENANT WOULD REST IN THE MIDDLE OF THIS MOST HOLY ROOM
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,413);
  • 06:54 JUST AS IT HAD IN THE TABERNACLE.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,415);
  • 06:56 AND THIS WOULD BE GOD'S DWELLING PLACE ON PLANET EARTH.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,421);
  • 07:01 WE BELIEVE THAT IT WAS IN THE DAYS OF KING SOLOMON WHEN THE CITY WALL WAS BUILT
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,425);
  • 07:06 ENCIRCLING MOUNT MORIAH AND SO ACTUALLY THE TWO PARTS OF THE CITY,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,430);
  • 07:10 NAMELY THE HISTORICAL CITY OF DAVID AND MOUNT MORIAH BECAME ONE CITY UNTIL TODAY.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,438);
  • 07:18 THE RUINS OF SOLOMON'S GATE CAN STILL BE SEEN,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,440);
  • 07:21 NESTLED WITHIN THE ARCHAEOLOGICAL EXCAVATIONS OF THE SOUTHERN WALL.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,445);
  • 07:26 JUST A SHORT DISTANCE AWAY, THE RUINS OF THE CITY OF DAVID CAN ALSO BE SEEN,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,449);
  • 07:30 RESTING ON THE LOWER PLATFORM OF A HILL THAT STRETCHES NORTHWARD TO THE TEMPLE MOUNT.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,456);
  • 07:37 THE VOICES FROM SOLOMON'S TEMPLE STILL ECHO THROUGH THE CORRIDORS OF TIME.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,461);
  • 07:41 IN THIS SMALL IVORY PIECE, DATED TO THE PERIOD OF THE FIRST TEMPLE, WHICH READS,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,472);
  • 07:52 AND THIS LETTER, ALSO DATED TO THE PERIOD OF SOLOMON'S TEMPLE,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,476);
  • 07:57 CONTAINS ONE OF THE EARLIEST REFERENCES TO THE TEMPLE,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,483);
  • 08:04 ARCHAEOLOGIST GABRIEL BARKAI.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,485);
  • 08:05 THIS SOUTHEASTERN CORNER IS A CRUCIAL POINT IN THE TEMPLE MOUNT.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,490);
  • 08:11 THIS WAS ALSO A PLACE WHERE ONE OF THE PIONEERS OF JERUSALEM'S ARCHAEOLOGY,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,496);
  • 08:17 CHARLES WARREN, IN THE 1860'S CARRIED OUT HIS PIONEERING EXCAVATIONS.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,503);
  • 08:24 UPON BEDROCK HE FOUND A ROCK POCKET WITH AN INTACT POTTERY VESSEL
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,508);
  • 08:29 OF THE FIRST TEMPLE PERIOD OF THE 8TH CENTURY B.C.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,512);
  • 08:32 THIS IS ALSO VERY CLOSE TO THE PLACE WHERE HE FOR THE FIRST TIME IDENTIFIED
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,516);
  • 08:37 THE ROYAL SEAL IMPRESSIONS FROM THE TIME OF HEZEKIAH, KING OF JUDAH.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,520);
  • 08:41 SO WE HAVE HERE, INTACT LAYERS OF FIRST TEMPLE PERIOD UNDERNEATH.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,526);
  • 08:46 THE TEMPLE CAME TO BE SYMBOLIC OF THE DIVINELY GRANTED NATIONHOOD OF THE ISRAELITES.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,531);
  • 08:52 IT WOULD STAND FOR 400 YEARS BEFORE THE BABYLONIAN KING, NEBUCHADNEZZAR, IN 586 BC,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,539);
  • 08:59 WOULD LAY SIEGE TO JERUSALEM AND DEMOLISH THE CITY.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,542);
  • 09:02 EVER SINCE, THE 9th OF AV HAS BEEN OBSERVED BY JEWS ANNUALLY AS A DAY OF MOURNING.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,550);
  • 09:11 THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL WERE TAKEN CAPTIVE TO BABYLON.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,554);
  • 09:14 FOR 70 YEARS, THEY WOULD MOURN FOR THEIR PROMISED LAND.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,557);
  • 09:18 AND AS THEY WEPT, THEIR SUPPLICATIONS TO GOD
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,560);
  • 09:21 WERE DIRECTED TOWARD THEIR HOLY CITY, JERUSALEM.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,564);
  • 09:24 SUCH WAS THE PRAYER OF THE PROPHET DANIEL.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,567);
  • 09:28 HE WENT INTO HIS HOUSE; AND HIS WINDOWS BEING OPEN IN HIS CHAMBER TOWARD JERUSALEM,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,574);
  • 09:34 HE KNELT UPON HIS KNEES THREE TIMES A DAY,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,576);
  • 09:36 AND PRAYED AND GAVE THANKS BEFORE HIS GOD, AS HE DID AFORETIME.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,583);
  • 09:44 THERE IS A BEAUTIFUL HYMN IN THE PSALMS ABOUT OUR TORMENTORS,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,589);
  • 09:50 DEMANDING US, ON THE RIVERS OF BABYLON, TO SING THE SONGS OF ZION
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,596);
  • 09:57 AND THEN OUR FOREFATHERS SAID, "NO WE CANNOT SING".
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,600);
  • 10:01 "HOW CAN WE SING SONGS OF ZION?"
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,602);
  • 10:02 AND THEN THEY START SINGING.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,605);
  • 10:05 AND THE HYMN IS KIND OF AN OATH.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,606);
  • 10:07 JEWS TOOK AN OATH, "IF I FORGET YOU, O, JERUSALEM LET MY RIGHT HAND BE FORGOTTEN".
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,613);
  • 10:14 THE FIRST SUBJECT WHEN THEY CAME BACK FROM BABYLON, WAS TO REBUILD THE TEMPLE.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,620);
  • 10:20 TUVIA SAGIV IS AN ISRAELI ARCHITECT
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,622);
  • 10:23 WHO HAS STUDIED THE SUBJECT OF THE TEMPLE EXTENSIVELY.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,625);
  • 10:26 IN THE BEGINNING, SOME OF THE PROPHETS CAME TO THEM AND SAID,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,629);
  • 10:30 "HOW COME THAT YOU DON'T REBUILD THE TEMPLE?"
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,633);
  • 10:34 AND REBUILDING THE TEMPLE WAS SO IMPORTANT.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,636);
  • 10:37 EVEN HEROD WAS NOT A JEW IN HIS BACKGROUND,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,640);
  • 10:41 HE UNDERSTOOD HOW MUCH IS IT IMPORTANT TO ENLARGE THE TEMPLE.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,647);
  • 10:48 IN THE FIRST CENTURY B.C., JERUSALEM WAS PART OF THE ROMAN EMPIRE.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,652);
  • 10:53 HEROD, THE GREAT, BECAME THE PUPPET KING OF ISRAEL
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,655);
  • 10:55 UNDER THE AUTHORITY OF ROME AND IN 19 B.C. BEGAN HIS AMBITIOUS PROJECT
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,661);
  • 11:01 OF REBUILDING THE TEMPLE FOR THE JEWISH PEOPLE.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,663);
  • 11:04 LEEN RITMEYER, HAS RESEARCHED THE TEMPLE MOUNT SINCE 1973
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,668);
  • 11:09 AND HAS WRITTEN NUMEROUS BOOKS ON HEROD'S TEMPLE.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,671);
  • 11:12 HEROD WAS MOTIVATED TO MAKE HIMSELF AN EVERLASTING NAME AS JOSEPHUS SAYS,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,676);
  • 11:17 AND HIS IDEA WAS TO MAKE THE TEMPLE MOUNT TWICE AS LARGE AS BEFORE,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,681);
  • 11:21 SO HE EXTENDED IT TO THE NORTH TO THE WEST AND SOUTH.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,685);
  • 11:26 JEWISH HISTORIAN, FLAVIUS JOSEPHUS, WHO LIVED DURING THE TIME OF SECOND TEMPLE,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,691);
  • 11:31 LEAVES US WITH THIS ACCOUNT OF KING HEROD'S REMARKABLE BUILDING PROJECT.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,696);
  • 11:37 HEROD REMOVED THE OLD FOUNDATIONS, HE LAID NEW ONES,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,701);
  • 11:41 AND RAISED THE STRUCTURE OF HARD, WHITE STONES.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,704);
  • 11:45 A GOLDEN VINE WITH GRAPES ADORNED THE AREA BELOW THE CORNICE.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,709);
  • 11:50 LARGE PORTICOES WITH 162 CORINTHIAN COLUMNS SURROUNDED THE TEMPLE,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,716);
  • 11:57 WHICH WAS SUPPORTED BY WALLS OF IMMENSE SIZE.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,721);
  • 12:02 IT TOOK 76 YEARS TO BUILD WHAT WOULD BECOME KNOWN AS THE "SECOND TEMPLE".
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,727);
  • 12:07 UPWARDS OF 10,000 WORKMAN AT A TIME CONSTRUCTED THE OUTER WALLS
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,732);
  • 12:12 THAT SUPPORTED AN AREA OF 35 ACRES.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,734);
  • 12:15 AT THE TIME OF JESUS, THE SOUTHERN WALL CONTAINED THE MAIN ENTRANCE GATES TO THE TEMPLE.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,742);
  • 12:22 WHAT WE SEE BEHIND US, IS WHAT WE CALL THE TRIPLE GATE.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,746);
  • 12:26 THIS GATE HAS THREE ENTRANCES INTO A PASSAGE
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,748);
  • 12:29 WHICH IS PRECISELY BUILT IN THE SAME MANNER AS THE DOUBLE GATE
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,753);
  • 12:34 AND WE BELIEVE THAT DURING THE SECOND TEMPLE PERIOD IT WAS A DOUBLE GATE
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,758);
  • 12:39 AND NOT TRIPLE GATE AS IT IS NOW.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,760);
  • 12:41 JUST BELOW THE GATES ARE THE RITUAL BATHS KNOWN AS MIKVAOTE.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,764);
  • 12:45 THESE WERE USED FOR CLEANSING PURPOSES BEFORE ASCENDING THE STEPS
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,768);
  • 12:49 AND ENTERING THE TEMPLE AREA FOR WORSHIP.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,772);
  • 12:53 SO, AS WE GET HERE, WE CAN SEE THIS DECORATED PART
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,775);
  • 12:56 WHICH HAS GOT CORNICES AND ALL KIND OFINCISIONS
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,778);
  • 12:59 WHICH FORM A PART OF THE GATE JAM DATED FROM HEROD'S TIME.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,782);
  • 13:02 AND THIS IS, FOR US THE PROOF THAT THIS GATE IS ACTUALLY FROM HEROD'S TIME
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,786);
  • 13:06 BECAUSE IT CONTINUES WITH A VERY LONG COURSE OF STONE WHICH WE CALL "THE MASTER COURSE"
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,792);
  • 13:12 BECAUSE IT'S SO HIGH GOING ALL THE WAY FROM HERE DOWN TO THE FLOOR.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,795);
  • 13:16 YOU SEE IT IS OVER MY HEAD EVEN IN THE SIZE.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,797);
  • 13:17 THE SOUTHWESTERN CORNER OF THE MOUNT HAS PROVIDED NUMEROUS ARCHAEOLOGICAL FINDS
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,802);
  • 13:23 THAT DATE TO THE PERIOD OF THE SECOND TEMPLE.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,805);
  • 13:26 ONE OF THE MORE FASCINATING IS THIS STONE, CHISELED IN HEBREW,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,809);
  • 13:30 WHICH READS "TO THE PLACE OF TRUMPETING."
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,813);
  • 13:33 THIS STONE FELL FROM THE TOP OF THE WALL WHERE IT HAD MARKED THE PLACE
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,817);
  • 13:37 FOR THE PRIEST TO BLOW A TRUMPET ANNOUNCING THE BEGINNING OF SABBATH.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,822);
  • 13:42 THIS OSSUARY WAS USED TO STORE THE BONES OF THE DEAD IN THE FIRST CENTURY.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,827);
  • 13:47 THE INSCRIPTION READS "SIMON, BUILDER OF THE TEMPLE".
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,831);
  • 13:51 SIMON CLEARLY THOUGHT THAT IT WAS AN HONOR TO BE AMONG THE THOUSANDS WHO LABORED
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,835);
  • 13:56 IN THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE HOUSE OF THE LORD.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,840);
  • 14:01 ONE CAN IMAGINE GOING, DURING THE SECOND TEMPLE PERIOD,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,844);
  • 14:04 GOING FROM HERE AND WALKING ALONG A PASSAGE
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,846);
  • 14:07 WITH STEPS ALL THE WAY UP TO THE SURFACE OF THE TEMPLE MOUNT
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,850);
  • 14:10 AND YOU CAN IMAGINE THE THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS THAT JOSEPHUS FLAVIUS SPEAKS ABOUT,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,854);
  • 14:14 MILLIONS OF PILGRIMS COMING ALL THE WAY UP TO HERE, GOING THROUGH THE GATE
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,859);
  • 14:19 AND THE DOUBLE GATE GOING INTO THIS TEMPLE.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,862);
  • 14:22 JESUS WAS AMONGST THEM.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,864);
  • 14:24 AND IN THE DAY TIME JESUS WAS TEACHING IN THE TEMPLE;
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,866);
  • 14:27 AND AT NIGHT HE WENT OUT, AND ABODE IN THE MOUNT THAT IS CALLED THE MOUNT OF OLIVES.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,871);
  • 14:31 AND ALL THE PEOPLE CAME EARLY IN THE MORNING TO HIM IN THE TEMPLE, FOR TO HEAR HIM.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,879);
  • 14:40 THE MAGNIFICENCE OF THE TEMPLE HAS CAPTIVATED THE IMAGINATION OF PEOPLE FOR AGES.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,885);
  • 14:45 DETAILED MODELS OF THE TEMPLE MOUNT CAN NOW BE FOUND IN ISRAEL, ENGLAND AND U.S.A.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,892);
  • 14:52 RECENTLY, A THEME PARK CALLED "THE HOLY LAND EXPERIENCE" WAS OPENED IN ORLANDO, FLORIDA,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,898);
  • 14:58 FEATURING A RECONSTRUCTION OF FIRST CENTURY JERUSALEM.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,901);
  • 15:02 AND HOVERING ABOVE IT ALL, GLISTENING WHITE, IN THE MIDDLE OF THE PARK,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,907);
  • 15:07 A FACSIMILE OF HEROD'S TEMPLE.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,910);
  • 15:10 WHAT ATTRACTS PEOPLE TO MODERN ISRAEL AND JERUSALEM, OF COURSE,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,914);
  • 15:14 IS MORE THAN BUILDINGS OF STONE AND MORTAR.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,916);
  • 15:17 AFTER ALL, GOD MADE HIS COVENANT HERE WITH THE JEWS 4,000 YEARS AGO
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,921);
  • 15:21 COMMANDING ABRAHAM TO BRING ISAAC HERE AND SACRIFICE HIM HERE
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,926);
  • 15:26 AND OF COURSE, FOR CHRISTIAN PEOPLE,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,927);
  • 15:28 THE SON OF GOD WAS SACRIFICED HERE, AT THE VERY SPOT.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,932);
  • 15:32 AND NOW, NEW BELIEVERS COME ALONG IN THE 21ST CENTURY,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,936);
  • 15:37 THOUSANDS OF YEARS LATER AND THOUSANDS OF MILES AWAY
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,939);
  • 15:40 AND BUILD A REPLICA OF THE TEMPLE OF GOD IN JERUSALEM.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,943);
  • 15:43 THE FOUNDER/DIRECTOR OF "THE HOLY LAND EXPERIENCE", MARVIN ROSENTHAL.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,947);
  • 15:47 I HAPPEN TO BELIEVE THAT THE 35 OR 38 ACRES THAT MAKE UP THE TEMPLE MOUNT IN ISRAEL TODAY
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,955);
  • 15:55 IS THE MOST IMPORTANT PIECE OF REAL ESTATE IN THE WORLD.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,957);
  • 15:57 I THINK THE SO-CALLED NEGOTIATION OR PEACE TALKS
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,961);
  • 16:02 BETWEEN YASSAR ARAFAT AND THE PRIME MINISTER OF ISRAEL,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,965);
  • 16:06 IN AN ULTIMATE SENSE, IS NOT ABOUT THE WEST BANK OR THE GAZA STRIP
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,970);
  • 16:11 OR ABOUT BETHLEHEM OR JERICHO.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,973);
  • 16:14 THE REAL ISSUE IS WHO IS GOING TO CONTROL THE TEMPLE MOUNT.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,988);
  • 16:28 THE PROGRAM WHICH YOU ARE VIEWING,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,989);
  • 16:30 AS WELL AS ADDITIONAL COVERAGE OF JERUSALEM'S TEMPLE MOUNT,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,993);
  • 16:33 IS NOW AVAILABLE ON VHS.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,995);
  • 16:36 A CLEAR PRESENTATION OF THE HISTORY
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,997);
  • 16:37 AND PROPHETIC SIGNIFICANCE OF THE MOST HALLOWED LAND ON PLANET EARTH.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1002);
  • 16:42 TO OBTAIN THIS TIMELY PERSPECTIVE OF THE MOUNTAIN OFTHE LORD,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1011);
  • 16:52 AS MAGNIFICENT AS THE STONES WERE, AS REGAL AS WERE THE ROYAL CHAMBERS
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1016);
  • 16:57 AND GATES THAT SURROUNDED THE HOLY TEMPLE,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1019);
  • 16:59 THEY WOULD ALL FALL, JUST AS JESUS SAID.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1023);
  • 17:04 AND JESUS WENT OUT AND DEPARTED FROM THE TEMPLE;
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1025);
  • 17:06 AND HIS DISCIPLES CAME TO HIM FOR TO SHEW HIM THE BUILDINGS OF THE TEMPLE.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1030);
  • 17:11 AND JESUS SAID UNTO THEM, "SEE YE NOT ALL THESE THINGS?"
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1033);
  • 17:14 "VERILY I SAY UNTO YOU, THERE SHALL NOT BE LEFT HERE ONE STONE UPON ANOTHER,"
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1039);
  • 17:20 "THAT SHALL NOT BE THROWN DOWN."
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1043);
  • 17:24 THE TEMPLE HAD BEEN COMPLETED FOR ONLY SIX YEARS
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1046);
  • 17:26 WHEN IT WAS TOTALLY DESTROYED BY THE ROMANS IN 70 A.D. UNDER THE COMMAND OF TITUS.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1053);
  • 17:33 JOSEPHUS LEFT AN EYEWITNESS REPORT OF THE SIEGE.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1056);
  • 17:37 WHILE THE TEMPLE WAS IN FLAMES, THE VICTORS STOLE EVERYTHING
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1060);
  • 17:41 AND SLAUGHTERED ALL WHO WERE CAUGHT.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1062);
  • 17:42 NO PITY WAS SHOWN TO AGE OR RANK, OLD MEN OR CHILDREN OR PRIESTS, ALL WERE MASSACRED.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1070);
  • 17:50 AS THE FLAMES GREW, AND SINCE THE TEMPLE STOOD ON A HILL,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1074);
  • 17:54 IT SEEMED AS IF THE WHOLE CITY WAS ABLAZE.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1081);
  • 18:01 WE HAVE SEEN THE EVIDENCE OF THE STONES HAVE BEEN PUSHED DOWN
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1085);
  • 18:06 FROM ON TOP AND FALLEN ON THE STREET.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1088);
  • 18:09 THAT'S WHY WE FOUND DESTROYED STONES.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1090);
  • 18:11 EVEN SO, ALL OF THE STONES THAT HAVE BEEN FOUND
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1093);
  • 18:13 ONLY ACCOUNT FOR 2% OF ALL OF THE STRUCTURE THAT STOOD THERE.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1096);
  • 18:17 I BELIEVE THAT ALSO, IN LATER PERIODS, THE TEMPLE MOUNT WAS LOOTED FOR THE STONES.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1103);
  • 18:24 HALF THE OLD CITY IS BUILT OF THE TEMPLE MOUNT STONES.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1109);
  • 18:29 YOU KNOW, ONE STRESS YOU DON'T OFTEN SEE IN THE NEWS TODAY ABOUT ISRAEL
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1112);
  • 18:33 IS THAT THE JEWS HAVE NEVER BEEN ABSENT FROM THE LAND, NOT FOR 3,500 YEARS.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1118);
  • 18:38 THERE'S NO OTHER PEOPLE IN THE WORLD THAT IS THAT ATTACHED TO THEIR LAND
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1123);
  • 18:43 IN TERMS OF PEOPLE WHO HAVE, SPEAKING THE SAME LANGUAGE, WORSHIPING THE SAME GOD,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1128);
  • 18:48 SINGING THE SAME SONGS, PRAYING THE SAME PRAYERS.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1131);
  • 18:51 EVEN AFTER 70 A.D., WHEN THE SECOND TEMPLE WAS DESTROYED,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1134);
  • 18:55 AND THERE HAS NOT BEEN ANOTHER TEMPLE OF GOD IN JERUSALEM IN ALL OF THAT TIME,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1139);
  • 19:00 THE JEWS HAVE NEVER LEFT THE LAND.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1140);
  • 19:01 THEY ESTABLISHED COMMUNITIES IN GALILEE AND TIBERIAS, FOR EXAMPLE.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1144);
  • 19:05 THEY STAYED THROUGH THE MIDDLE AGES AND THE MODERN TIMES
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1148);
  • 19:08 AND HAVE ALWAYS BEEN THERE ATTACHED TO THE PROMISED LAND.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1152);
  • 19:13 THE WESTERN WALL STANDS AS A HOLY MEMORIAL TO WHAT WAS THE WESTERN RETAINING WALL OF THE TEMPLE MOUNT.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1161);
  • 19:21 THE STONES, WHICH CAN BE SEEN TODAY,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1163);
  • 19:23 ARE BUT A PORTION OF THE ENTIRE WALL WHICH EXTENDS FAR BELOW THE PRESENT GROUND LEVEL.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1169);
  • 19:30 IN TEMPLE TIMES, IT WAS 530 YARDS LONG.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1174);
  • 19:34 MANY OF THE ORIGINAL HERODIAN STONES STILL EXIST TODAY,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1178);
  • 19:38 SOME WEIGHING AS MUCH AS 100 TONS.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1180);
  • 19:41 WORSHIPERS FROM AROUND THE WORLD HAVE MADE IT A CUSTOM TO WRITE THEIR PRAYERS ON PIECES OF PAPER
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1186);
  • 19:47 AND LEAVE THEM IN THE CRACKS BETWEEN THE CHISELED STONES,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1190);
  • 19:50 THE FEW STONES THAT HAVE SURVIVED THE RELENTLESS SIEGE OF ENCROACHING EMPIRES.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1197);
  • 19:57 THE TOTAL NUMBER OF PRISONERS TAKEN DURING THE WAR
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1200);
  • 20:00 WAS 97,000 AND THOSE WHO DIED DURING THE SIEGE 1,100,000.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1206);
  • 20:06 JERUSALEM HAD BEEN CAPTURED FIVE TIMES BEFORE, AND WAS NOW, FOR THE SECOND TIME, DESTROYED.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1215);
  • 20:16 TITUS AND HIS SOLDIERS HAD PLUNDERED THE TEMPLE,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1218);
  • 20:18 TAKING EVERYTHING THAT WAS HOLY TO ROME.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1220);
  • 20:21 THE MONEY RAISED FROM THE SPOILS MAY, IN FACT, HAVE BEEN THE SOURCE OF FUNDING
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1225);
  • 20:26 FOR THE BUILDING OF THE ENTIRE ROMAN COLISEUM.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1228);
  • 20:28 IN 135 A.D., THE EMPEROR HADRIAN BUILT A PAGAN CITY ON TOP OF WHAT REMAINED OF THE HOLY CITY,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1235);
  • 20:36 CALLING IT AELIA CAPITOLINA.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1237);
  • 20:38 JEWS WERE BARRED FROM LIVING IN, OR EVEN VISITING THE CITY.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1241);
  • 20:41 TO ADD FURTHER INSULT TO THE JEWS, HADRIAN RENAMED THE ENTIRE LAND "PALESTINE"
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1248);
  • 20:49 AFTER THEIR PAGAN ENEMIES, THE PHILISTINES.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1251);
  • 20:51 IN 324 A.D., THE ROMAN EMPEROR, CONSTANTINE, BECAME A CHRISTIAN AND SHORTLY THEREAFTER
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1257);
  • 20:57 JERUSALEM, BY MANDATE, BECAME A CHRISTIAN CITY.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1259);
  • 21:00 THIS WAS THE BEGINNING OF THE BYZANTINE PERIOD DURING WHICH CHRISTIANITY WOULD FLOURISH.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1266);
  • 21:07 THE TEMPLE HAS ALWAYS INSPIRED FAITH AMONG CHRISTIANS, EVEN THE LACK OF A TEMPLE.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1271);
  • 21:12 WHEN THE BYZANTINE BELIEVERS FROM EUROPE CAME TO JERUSALEM
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1275);
  • 21:15 AND WERE THERE FROM THE 4TH CENTURY TO THE 7TH CENTURY,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1278);
  • 21:19 THE VERY RUINS, THE FACT THAT THE TEMPLE HAD BEEN DESTROYED
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1282);
  • 21:22 VERIFIED JESUS' PROPHECY ABOUT NOT ONE STONE SHALL BE LEFT UPON ANOTHER
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1287);
  • 21:28 THAT SHALL NOT BE THROWN DOWN.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1288);
  • 21:29 SO IT WAS, FAITH BUILDING, EVEN THEN, IN ITS DESTRUCTION.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1293);
  • 21:34 AFTER THE DEATH OF MUHAMMAD, THE ARABS ATTACKED JERUSALEM IN 637 AD TAKING CONTROL OF THE MOUNT.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1301);
  • 21:42 FIFTY YEARS LATER THEY BUILT THE DOME OF THE ROCK
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1304);
  • 21:45 CLAIMING IT TO BE A TRIUMPH OF ISLAM IN THE HOLY CITY,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1308);
  • 21:48 ADDING YET ANOTHER MOSQUE IN 715 A.D. CALLED AL-AQSA.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1312);
  • 21:53 INSIDE THE DOME OF THE ROCK, THE SUMMIT OF THE TEMPLE MOUNT CAN STILL BE SEEN
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1318);
  • 21:59 AND IN THE MIDDLE OF THE SUMMIT "THE ROCK."
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1322);
  • 22:03 TODAY THE LINGERING QUESTIONS REMAIN,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1325);
  • 22:05 "COULD THIS BE THE EXACT SPOT THAT ABRAHAM OFFERED HIS SON ISAAC,"
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1329);
  • 22:10 "THE VERY SITE OF THE THRESHING FLOOR PURCHASED BY KING DAVID?"
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1333);
  • 22:14 "COULD THIS ROCK HAVE BEEN THE CENTER OF GOD'S DWELLING PLACE ON EARTH, IN THE HOLY OF HOLIES?"
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1343);
  • 22:23 THE TRADITIONAL JEWISH VIEW HAS ALWAYS BEEN THAT THE ROCK INSIDE OF THE DOME OF THE ROCK
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1349);
  • 22:30 IS EITHER THE LOCATION OF THE HOLY OF HOLIES OR THE PLACE OF THE ALTAR
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1353);
  • 22:33 AND I DO BELIEVE, FOR EXAMPLE, THE TEMPLE INSTITUTE HAS COMPLETELY ACCEPTED MY FINDINGS
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1361);
  • 22:41 THAT THE FOUNDATIONS OF SOLOMON'S TEMPLE HAVE BEEN FOUND ON THE ROCK.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1366);
  • 22:47 GERSHON SALOMON IS A STRONG SUPPORTER OF THE TRADITIONAL VIEW.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1371);
  • 22:51 GOD HIMSELF POINTED FROM THE EARLY TIMES OF THE HISTORY,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1376);
  • 22:56 NOT ONLY THIS LAND TO BE THE LAND OF THE COVENANT, THE LAND GOD CHOSE TO DWELL THERE,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1384);
  • 23:04 BUT HE CHOSE THAT THIS HILL, THE TEMPLE MOUNT, MOUNT MORIAH,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1389);
  • 23:09 TO BE THE PLACE WHERE HE, HIMSELF, WILL DWELL EXACTLY AS HE COMMANDED ISRAEL.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1396);
  • 23:16 "YOU WILL BUILD ME HERE A HOUSE AND I WILL DWELL AMONG YOU."
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1401);
  • 23:22 THE MUSLIMS FEEL QUITE DIFFERENTLY ABOUT THIS SITE.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1404);
  • 23:25 THEY CALL IT "HARAM AS-SHARIF", THE "NOBLE SANCTUARY".
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1409);
  • 23:29 MUSLIMS BELIEVE THAT IN 620 A.D.,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1411);
  • 23:31 THE PROPHET MUHAMMAD VISITED JERUSALEM IN A MYSTICAL NIGHT JOURNEY FROM MECCA IN ARABIA.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1417);
  • 23:37 THE DOME OF THE ROCK, THEY SAY, MARKS THE SPOT OF HIS ASCENSION TO HEAVEN.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1422);
  • 23:43 ADNAN HUESSENI IS DIRECTOR OF THE ISLAMIC WAQF, JERUSALEM,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1426);
  • 23:47 THE ISLAMIC AUTHORITY IN JERUSALEM WHICH OVERSEES THE DOME OF THE ROCK.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1432);
  • 23:52 AND FROM THIS SITE, WHICH IS THE SITE OF THE ROCK ITSELF, HERE,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1436);
  • 23:57 MUHAMMAD WERE ASCENDED TO HEAVEN TO RECEIVE THE INSTRUCTIONS OF THE PRAY.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1443);
  • 24:04 THIS PLACE WAS NAMED BY GOD AS AL-AQSA, NOT BY THE MUSLIMS.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1449);
  • 24:10 AND IN THAT DAY WILL I MAKE JERUSALEM A BURDENSOME STONE FOR ALL PEOPLE:
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1454);
  • 24:15 ALL THAT BURDEN THEMSELVES WITH IT SHALL BE CUT IN PIECES,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1457);
  • 24:18 THOUGH ALL THE PEOPLE OF THE EARTH BE GATHERED TOGETHER AGAINST IT.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1465);
  • 24:26 THE TEMPLE MOUNT HAD ALREADY ENCOUNTERED THE SEIGE
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1468);
  • 24:28 OF THE BABYLONIANS, THE ROMANS, AND THE ARABS.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1471);
  • 24:31 AS HISTORY CONTINUED, IT WOULD BE OCCUPIED EVEN FURTHER,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1474);
  • 24:35 BY THE CRUSADERS, THE MAMELUKES, THE TURKS, AND THE BRITISH.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1480);
  • 24:41 THE JEWISH PEOPLE WOULD ONCE AGAIN BE DISPERSED THROUGHOUT THE WORLD.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1486);
  • 24:46 THEY WOULD COME TO KNOW THE HOLOCAUST.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1489);
  • 24:49 BUT THE ETERNAL FLAME WOULD NOT DIE.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1491);
  • 24:52 THE VOICE OF THE CHOSEN PEOPLE WOULD NOT BE SILENCED.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1495);
  • 24:56 THE MAYOR OF JERUSALEM, EHUD OLMERT.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1498);
  • 24:59 JERUSALEM WAS THE WALLED CITY.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1500);
  • 25:00 AND WITHIN THE WALLED CITY, THE HEART OF THE CITY WAS THE TEMPLE MOUNT
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1505);
  • 25:05 WHICH WAS THE SITE OF THE TWO JEWISH TEMPLES THAT WERE DESTROYED.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1509);
  • 25:10 SO IT WASN'T JUST A SYMBOLIC GESTURE OF ENORMOUS EMOTIONAL IMPACT, WHICH IT IS,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1518);
  • 25:19 BUT IT WAS ALSO THE SITE WHERE THE TWO JEWISH TEMPLES EXISTED
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1525);
  • 25:26 AND WHERE THEY WERE DESTROYED BY THE ENEMIES OF ISRAEL.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1529);
  • 25:29 THEREFORE, THE RETURN BACK TO THAT PLACE IS THE ULTIMATE AFFIRMATION
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1535);
  • 25:36 OF OUR STRENGTH AND OUR VITALITY, AND OUR TOTAL COMMITMENT FOR OUR OWN FUTURE.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1546);
  • 25:46 FOR I WILL TAKE YOU FROM AMONG THE HEATHEN, AND GATHER YOU OUT OF ALL COUNTRIES,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1551);
  • 25:51 AND WILL BRING YOU INTO YOUR OWN LAND.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1555);
  • 25:55 AFTER 2000 YEARS OF DISPERSION,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1556);
  • 25:57 THE JEWISH PEOPLE WOULD ONCE AGAIN RETURN TO THEIR PROMISED LAND.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1560);
  • 26:01 THIS TIME, WITH UTTER RESOLVE, THEY WOULD COMMIT TO A PERMANENT HOMELAND.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1565);
  • 26:05 ON MAY 14, 1948, PRIME MINISTER DAVID BEN-GURION UTTERED THE PROCLAMATION HEARD AROUND WORLD
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1574);
  • 26:14 "WE HEREBY DECLARE THE ESTABLISHMENT OF THE JEWISH STATE IN ERETZ ISRAEL: THE STATE OF ISRAEL."
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1581);
  • 26:21 BEN-GURION CONCLUDED HIS READING OF THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE WITH
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1586);
  • 26:27 "TRUST IN THE ROCK OF ISRAEL."
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1590);
  • 26:31 SURROUNDED BY A SEA OF ARAB NATIONS,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1592);
  • 26:33 ISRAEL WOULD BE THE SOLE DEMOCRACY IN THE WHOLE MIDDLE EAST.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1596);
  • 26:37 THE VERY DAY OF IT'S BIRTH, ISRAEL WAS ATTACKED BY EVERY ONE OF ITS ARAB NEIGHBORS.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1602);
  • 26:43 THE WAR OF INDEPENDENCE WAS WON, WITH JERUSALEM "OFFICIALLY" DIVIDED.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1608);
  • 26:48 THE TEMPLE MOUNT IN THE HEART OF THE OLD CITY RESTED IN THE HANDS OF THE JORDANIANS.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1615);
  • 26:55 YOU KNOW, PEOPLE ARE SAYING THAT THE JEWS SHOULD MOVE OFF THE TEMPLE MOUNT, FORGET ABOUT IT.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1620);
  • 27:00 COULD THIS THEME PARK BECOME THE SOLE REPRESENTATION OF THE TEMPLE IN THE WORLD?
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1625);
  • 27:06 AFTER ALL, THERE WAS ANTI-SEMITISM EVEN AFTER THE HOLOCAUST
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1630);
  • 27:10 AND FROM 1948 TO 1967 WHEN JERUSALEM WAS DIVIDED,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1634);
  • 27:14 THERE WERE NO JEWS ALLOWED AT ALL IN THE OLD CITY OR ANYWHERE NEAR THE TEMPLE MOUNT.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1641);
  • 27:21 ON JUNE 5TH, 1967, WAR ONCE AGAIN BROKE OUT AS ISRAEL FOUND ITSELF SURROUNDED BY ARAB ARMIES.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1650);
  • 27:31 HISTORIAN MICHAEL OREN.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1653);
  • 27:33 55,000 JORDANIAN TROOPS, 70,000 SYRIAN TROOPS, 110,000 EGYPTIAN TROOPS,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1660);
  • 27:40 MANY THOUSANDS OF PLANES AND TANKS AND ARMORED VEHICLES,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1662);
  • 27:43 ALL GATHERING IN THIS SORT OF MILITARY NOOSE AROUND THE STATE OF ISRAEL.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1668);
  • 27:49 VIRTUALLY THE ENTIRE ISRAELI AIR FORCE TOOK TO THE SKIES
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1672);
  • 27:53 AND ATTACKED THE EGYPTIAN AIR FORCE AT 19 DIFFERENT BASES SIMULTANEOUSLY, FLYING AT VERY LOW LEVEL.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1679);
  • 27:59 IT'S GENERALLY CONSIDERED THE MOST EXTRAORDINARY AIR OPERATION IN HISTORY
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1683);
  • 28:03 AND WAS REMARKABLY SUCCESSFUL.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1685);
  • 28:06 I SAY FAR MORE SUCCESSFUL THAN EVEN THE ISRAELI'S ANTICIPATED.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1687);
  • 28:08 WHAT WASN'T PLANNED WAS THE CONQUEST OF THE ENTIRE SINAI PENINSULA.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1691);
  • 28:12 WHAT WAS NOT PLANNED WAS THE CONQUEST OF THE GOLAN HEIGHTS.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1695);
  • 28:16 WHAT WAS NOT PLANNED WAS AN ENTRY INTO THE WEST BANK
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1698);
  • 28:19 AND THE LIBERATION OF THE CITY OF JERUSALEM WAS JUST SIMPLY NOT PLANNED

  • 28:24 AND NOT FORESEEN BY THE ISRAELI GOVERNMENT.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1707);
  • 28:27 THE WAR WOULD LAST ONLY 6 DAYS.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1709);
  • 28:30 THE TEMPLE MOUNT AND THE WESTERN WALL HAD BEEN RECLAIMED.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1713);
  • 28:34 DAVID RUBINGER STILL VISITS THE WESTERN WALL.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1716);
  • 28:37 AS A PHOTO-JOURNALIST, HE CONTINUES TO CAPTURE THOSE FLEETING MOMENTS OF TIME,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1722);
  • 28:42 JUST AS HE DID IN '67.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1724);
  • 28:45 FOR THREE WEEKS PRECEDING THAT WAR, WE HAD ALL LIVED IN AN ATMOSPHERE OF TOTAL DOOM.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1733);
  • 28:53 AND WELL, TAKE AN EXAMPLE, TEL AVIV STADIUM WAS PREPARED TO BE TURNED INTO A BURIAL GROUND FOR 40,000 PEOPLE.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1744);
  • 29:04 IT WAS ONLY AFTER THE TREMENDOUS VICTORY OF THE AIR FORCE AT 8:00 IN THE MORNING
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1749);
  • 29:09 THAT THINGS SUDDENLY TURNED AROUND.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1755);
  • 29:16 IT'S 5:30 A.M., THE ORTHODOX JEWS SCURRY TO THE WESTERN WALL FOR THEIR MORNING PRAYERS.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1763);
  • 29:23 THEY WILL READ FROM THE BOOK OF PSALMS.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1765);
  • 29:26 BLESSINGS ARE PRONOUNCED, PETITIONS ARE OFFERED,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1768);
  • 29:29 AND A PRAYER IS RECITED FOR THE COMING TEMPLE.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1772);
  • 29:32 RABBI MENACHEM FROMAN WRAPS HIS ARM IN THE PHYLACTERY
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1775);
  • 29:36 AND APPLIES A BOX TO HIS FOREHEAD CONTAINING THE SCRIPTURE FROM DEUTERONOMY 6.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1781);
  • 29:42 HE READS FROM FIRST KINGS, CHAPTER 8,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1783);
  • 29:44 CONCERNING SOLOMON'S PRAYER OF DEDICATION UPON THE TEMPLE.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1789);
  • 29:49 YOU ARE PHOTOGRAPHING ME, BUT YOU DON'T SEE MY HEART.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1794);
  • 29:55 BUT IT IS THERE AND IT IS WHAT GIVES ME THE CAPACITY TO SPEAK, TO BE PICTURED.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1806);
  • 30:07 PERHAPS YOU DON'T SEE THIS EAGER, THIS HOPE, THIS PRAYER
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1814);
  • 30:14 FOR MEETING GOD IN HIS HOUSE IN THE TEMPLE MOUNT,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1821);
  • 30:22 BUT THIS IS THE HEART OF THE WHOLE SENTIMENT.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1831);
  • 30:32 THE MUSLIM PRAYER CAN BE HEARD FIVE TIMES A DAY.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1834);
  • 30:35 IN THE LITTLE ARAB VILLAGES SURROUNDING JERUSALEM, THE DEVOUT GATHER TO PRAY.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1839);
  • 30:40 THEY PRAY TOWARD MECCA, IN SAUDI ARABIA, THE BIRTHPLACE OF THEIR FOUNDER, MOHAMMAD.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1846);
  • 30:46 JERUSALEM IS THE THIRD MOST HOLY SITE TO THE MUSLIMS, AFTER MECCA AND MEDINA.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1852);
  • 30:53 ON SPECIAL HOLY DAYS, OVER 200,000 GATHER TO PRAY.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1856);
  • 30:57 THEY BOW THEIR HEADS AND HEARTS TOWARDS THEIR PRIMARY HOLY SITE NEARLY 800 MILES AWAY.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1863);
  • 31:04 WE AS MUSLIMS, WE HAVE ONE SPIRIT, ONLY ONE SPIRIT.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1872);
  • 31:13 IT'S THE RELIGION SPIRIT.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1873);
  • 31:14 SHEIK ABDULLAH DARWISH IS THE SPIRITUAL HEAD OF THE ISLAMIC MOVEMENT IN ISRAEL.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1878);
  • 31:19 SO I, AS A MUSLIM, AS A MUSLIM WARD, OUR SPIRIT IS THE KORAN, MUHAMMAD, ISLAM.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1889);
  • 31:30 THIS IS OUR SPIRIT. WITHOUT THIS SPIRIT WE WILL DIE.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1895);
  • 31:36 MUSTAFA ABU SWAY IS THE DIRECTOR OF THE ISLAMIC RESEARCH CENTER, AL-QUDS UNIVERSITY, JERUSALEM.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1903);
  • 31:43 RELIGION IS ONE OF THE PRIMARY SUBJECTS TAUGHT HERE.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1906);
  • 31:47 MUSTAFA LIVES WITHIN THE VERY SHADOW OF THE TEMPLE MOUNT
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1909);
  • 31:50 AND HIS ROOFTOP AFFORDS A SPLENDID VIEW OF THE COMPOUND HE REFERS TO AS "AL-AQSA."
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1916);
  • 31:57 IN THE EYES OF THE MUSLIMS, THE LONG HISTORY OF THE MOUNT
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1919);
  • 32:00 IS QUITE DIFFERENT FROM THAT REVEALED IN THE BIBLICAL TEXT.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1923);
  • 32:04 WHAT MUSLIMS SAY THAT ABRAHAM ATTEMPTED TO SACRIFICE ISHMAEL
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1928);
  • 32:08 AND IT'S IN MECCA RATHER THAN JERUSALEM.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1931);
  • 32:11 WE SAY KING SOLOMON WAS A MUSLIM.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1933);
  • 32:14 WHAT MEANS ISLAM?
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1935);
  • 32:15 ISLAM MEANS WE ARE SURRENDERING TO GOD.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1938);
  • 32:18 KING SOLOMON WAS TOO.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1938);
  • 32:19 ALL THE PROPHETS WERE MUSLIM, SURRENDERING TO GOD.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1941);
  • 32:22 HISTORICALLY ISLAM IS THE YOUNGEST RELIGION OF THE THREE MONOTHEISTIC RELIGIONS.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1948);
  • 32:28 BASICALLY WHAT THEY DID WAS TO ADOPT JEWISH TRADITION AND REWRITE IT,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1953);
  • 32:34 ADJUSTING IT TO THEIR OWN MYTH, I WOULD SAY, OR TO THEIR OWN NARRATIVE.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1959);
  • 32:40 MOR ALTSHULER IS A SENIOR FELLOW AT THE SHALEM CENTER IN JERUSALEM.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1964);
  • 32:44 HER VISITS TO THE WESTERN WALL ARE NOT AS FREQUENT AS THE RELIGIOUS JEWS,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1968);
  • 32:48 BUT HER FAITH REMAINS UNWAVERING IN THE BIBLICAL ACCOUNT OF THE TEMPLE MOUNT.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1973);
  • 32:53 ACCORDING TO THAT TRADITION MOHAMMAD TOOK A RIDE ON HIS HORSE OR DIVINE HORSE
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1979);
  • 32:59 OR AN ANGEL AND JUST FLEW AT NIGHT TO AL-AQSA, THIS MOSQUE AND HE WENT UP TO HEAVEN.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1987);
  • 33:08 BUT, IT WAS THE JEWISH TRADITION ABOUT THE TEMPLE MOUNT BEING THE GATES OF HEAVEN
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1992);
  • 33:13 THAT ENABLED THEM CENTURIES AND CENTURIES LATER
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1995);
  • 33:16 TO DEVELOP A TRADITION ABOUT MOHAMMAD GOING UP TO HEAVEN FROM THIS VERY SPOT.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2001);
  • 33:22 NOW, MOHAMMAD NEVER SET A FOOT IN THE HOLY LAND.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2006);
  • 33:27 NEVER SAW IN HIS EYES THE TEMPLE MOUNT.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2010);
  • 33:31 AND HE LIVED AND HE WAS VERY CREATIVE AND IMAGINATIVE PERSON.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2017);
  • 33:38 HE WAS A PERSON OF GOD, BUT HE WAS IN THE DESERT
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2020);
  • 33:40 SO HE AND HIS FOLLOWERS ADOPTED JEWISH TRADITION AND TRANSFORMED THEM IN ISLAMIC TRADITION.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2032);
  • 33:53 WHEN THE ISRAELI PARATROOPERS LIBERATED THE TEMPLE MOUNT IN 1967,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2037);
  • 33:57 DEFENSE MINISTER MOSHE DAYAN MADE A TACTICAL DECISION THAT,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2041);
  • 34:01 FOR MANY, HAS REMAINED A QUANDARY TO THIS DAY.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2045);
  • 34:05 HE RELINQUISHED CONTROL OF THE DOME OF THE ROCK
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2047);
  • 34:08 AND THE SURROUNDING COMPOUND TO THE MUSLIMS.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2051);
  • 34:12 TO BE SMART MEANS TO SOMETIMES RESTRAIN THE IMPLEMENTATION OF YOUR RIGHTS
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2056);
  • 34:17 FOR THE SAKE OF PEACE AND COEXISTENCE.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2061);
  • 34:21 AND THEREFORE WE SAID WE WILL PRAY IN FRONT OF THE WESTERN WALL
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2064);
  • 34:24 AND WE WILL DELAY THE IMPLEMENTATION OF OUR RIGHTS ON TEMPLE MOUNT FOR A MORE PEACEFUL TIME.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2071);
  • 34:31 EVEN MOSHE DAYAN UNDERSTOOD IT'S A PROBLEM TO HOLD IT
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2074);
  • 34:35 BECAUSE SO MANY PROBLEMS IT'S CAUSED AND YOU WILL SEE UNTIL NOW,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2079);
  • 34:39 BECAUSE THERE ARE TWO, TWO NATIONS, TWO PEOPLE WHO SAY, "WE WANT THIS AREA."
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2083);
  • 34:44 ONE SAYS MOHAMMAD WAS HERE AND THE OTHER WILL SAY SOLOMON, THE KING
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2088);
  • 34:48 BUILT THIS AREA AND IT'S A PROBLEM.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2090);
  • 34:50 LAWS OF HOSPITALITY CANNOT BE TRANSLATED INTO RIGHTS.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2098);
  • 34:58 IF I INVITE YOU TO MY HOME ONCE FOR DINNER
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2102);
  • 35:03 DOESN'T MEAN THAT YOU SHOW UP EVERY EVENING AT THE SAME TIME.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2106);
  • 35:06 AND THIS IS EXACTLY THE NATURE OF THE PROBLEM.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2110);
  • 35:10 THE TEMPLE MOUNT IS THE HEART.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2111);
  • 35:12 YOU CAN CUT FROM A PERSON THE HANDS AND THE LEG, WHATEVER YOU WANT.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2116);
  • 35:16 BUT IN THE MOMENT YOU TOUCH THE HEART, THERE'S A PROBLEM.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2122);
  • 35:22 THE "PROBLEM" BECAME MOST APPARENT WHEN AERIAL SHARON VISITED THE TEMPLE MOUNT
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2127);
  • 35:28 JUST BEFORE HIS ELECTION AS PRIME MINISTER.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2131);
  • 35:31 SHARON INSISTED IT WAS HIS RIGHT TO VISIT THE HOLY SITE
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2134);
  • 35:34 AND PROCEEDED THROUGH THE SMALL GATE ON THE WESTERN SIDE OF THE MOUNT.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2138);
  • 35:39 MOVING ON TO THE WESTERN WALL, HE THEN READ FROM THE BOOK OF PSALMS,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2143);
  • 35:43 AS THE MEDIA CLAMORED FOR POSITION
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2146);
  • 35:46 [READING IN HEBREW]
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2151);
  • 35:51 DAVID DOLAN IS AN AMERICAN JOURNALIST WHO HAS LIVED IN ISRAEL SINCE 1984,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2157);
  • 35:57 WHEN HE COVERED THE LEBANON WAR.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2158);
  • 35:58 MORE RECENTLY, HIS STORIES HAVE COVERED EVENTS AT THE TEMPLE MOUNT,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2162);
  • 36:03 SUCH AS SHARON'S VISIT TO THE HOLY SITE.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2165);
  • 36:06 ESSENTIALLY A RIOT BROKE OUT FAIRLY QUICKLY.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2168);
  • 36:08 HE CAME UP JUST BEFORE ONE OF ISRAEL'S HOLIEST DAYS OF THE YEAR,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2172);
  • 36:13 ROSH HASHANAH, JEWISH NEW YEAR, SAYING HE JUST WANTED TO VISIT THE SITE,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2178);
  • 36:18 BUT THE PALESTINIANS, OF COURSE, SAW IT IN A POLITICAL WAY,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2181);
  • 36:22 AND THEY WERE PREPARED BEFORE HAND WITH SOME STONES AND SOME OTHER ITEMS
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2186);
  • 36:26 AND THEY STARTED THROWING THEM AT THE POLICE.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2188);
  • 36:28 IT'S A BOOK VERSUS A BOOK, T'S A CLAIM VERSUS A CLAIM, IT'S HISTORY VERSUS HISTORY.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2194);
  • 36:35 BUT ULTIMATELY, IT BOILS DOWN TO PHYSICAL BEING,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2199);
  • 36:39 THE PHYSICAL BEING THE STRUCTURE THERE IS A MOSQUE AND THIS IS REALLY WHERE--
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2205);
  • 36:45 THIS IS WHERE THE PROBLEMS EITHER ENDS OR BEGINS
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2213);
  • 36:53 GERSHON SALOMON IS THE LEADER OF THE TEMPLE MOUNT FAITHFUL.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2217);
  • 36:57 HE LIMPS FROM A WAR INJURY INCURRED WHEN HIS LEG WAS CRUSHED BY A TANK
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2222);
  • 37:02 IN A BATTLE WITH THE SYRIAN ARMY.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2224);
  • 37:04 IN 1989 HE AND HUNDREDS OF LIKE-MINDED SUPPORTERS MARCHED TO THE TEMPLE MOUNT
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2229);
  • 37:10 WITH, WHAT THEY HOPED WOULD BE, THE CORNER STONE TO THE NEXT TEMPLE.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2234);
  • 37:14 THEIR ENTRANCE TO THE MOUNT WAS DENIED BY THE ISRAELI AUTHORITIES,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2238);
  • 37:18 BUT THEY REMAIN UNDAUNTED IN THEIR QUEST TO RESTORE THE HOUSE OF THE LORD.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2243);
  • 37:23 WE ARE MARCHING TO THE TEMPLE MOUNT.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2245);
  • 37:26 WE ARE MAKING THE BATTLE FOR THE TEMPLE MOUNT.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2249);
  • 37:30 WE ARE SPEAKING TO THE ISRAELI NATION.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2251);
  • 37:31 I TRAVEL TO-- ALL OVER THE WORLD WHERE I'M INVITED TO SHARE THE WORD OF GOD
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2258);
  • 37:38 AND THE BIG DREAM AND THE VISION AND THE PRACTICAL IDEA OF THE REBUILDING OF THE TEMPLE.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2265);
  • 37:46 AND I FIND IN EVERY PLACE SUCH A SOLIDARITY, SUCH STRONG SUPPORT AND THE LOVE.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2272);
  • 37:52 GERSHON SALOMON IS NOT ALONE IN HIS MISSION TO REBUILD THE TEMPLE.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2276);
  • 37:56 WE ARE ACTUALLY STARTING TO REPRODUCE SOME OF THE VESSELS AND GARMENTS
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2280);
  • 38:00 WHICH COULD BE USED IN THE THIRD TEMPLE WHEN IT'S BUILT.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2283);
  • 38:03 HERE AT JERUSALEM'S TEMPLE INSTITUTE, LEVI CHEYES.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2286);
  • 38:07 WHAT WE HAVE OVER HERE IS THE CROWN FOR THE HIGH PRIEST.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2291);
  • 38:11 THE HIGH PRIEST WOULD BE WEARING EIGHT GARMENTS.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2292);
  • 38:13 ENGRAVED IN GOLD IS "KODESH LA SHEM" WHICH MEANS "HOLY TO THE LORD.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2297);
  • 38:17 IT'S MADE FROM 100 GRAMS OF PURE GOLD.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2299);
  • 38:20 WE HAVE THIS SILVER PIECE WHICH IT'S PURPOSE IS FOR GATHERING THE BLOOD FROM THE SACRIFICE.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2308);
  • 38:28 IT WOULD GO INSIDE.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2308);
  • 38:29 IT WOULD BE TAKEN BY THE PRIEST AND SPRINKLED ON THE FOUR CORNERS OF THE ALTAR.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2313);
  • 38:33 THEY WANT TO START BUILDING THE ALTAR FIRST AND THEY HAVE ACCEPTED MY THEORY.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2318);
  • 38:39 THEY DO SELL MY BOOKLET, "THE TEMPLE AND THE ROCK"
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2321);
  • 38:42 IN WHICH I SET OUT THE LOCATION OF THE TEMPLE AND THE ARK,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2324);
  • 38:44 AND I BELIEVE THAT IS THE PLACE THEY WOULD LIKE TO START BUILDING THE ALTAR.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2329);
  • 38:49 THE GOLDEN MENORAH FOR THE THIRD TEMPLE IS ON DISPLAY OUTSIDE THE TEMPLE INSTITUTE
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2334);
  • 38:54 AND HAS BECOME A POPULAR ATTRACTION TO LOCAL ISRAELIS AND TOURISTS ALIKE.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2339);
  • 39:00 IT STANDS SEVEN FEET TALL.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2342);
  • 39:02 ALSO ON DISPLAY AT THE INSTITUTE ARE THE PRIEST'S GARMENTS,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2345);
  • 39:06 AND THE STONES FOR THE BREASTPLATE OF THE HIGH PRIEST.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2349);
  • 39:09 COMPUTERS HAVE BEEN USED TO GENERATE THE PLANS
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2351);
  • 39:11 FOR VARIOUS ROOMS IN THE ACTUAL THIRD TEMPLE STRUCTURE.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2356);
  • 39:16 AND THERE WAS GIVEN ME A REED LIKE A ROD:
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2358);
  • 39:19 AND THE ANGEL STOOD SAYING, RISE, AND MEASURE THE TEMPLE OF GOD,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2363);
  • 39:23 AND THE ALTAR, AND THEM THAT WORSHIP THEREIN.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2368);
  • 39:29 WHAT IS THE RED HEIFER ALL ABOUT AND WHY IS IT SO IMPORTANT?
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2372);
  • 39:33 THE SPOKESMAN FOR THE THE TEMPLE INSTITUTE, CHAIM RICHMOND
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2376);
  • 39:37 AND THE MYSTERIOUS "ASHES OF THE RED HEIFER".
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2378);
  • 39:39 ACCORDING TO NUMBERS 19, THERE IS A PARTICULAR TYPE OF IMPURITY WHICH PERVADES THE WORLD TODAY,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2387);
  • 39:48 WHOSE CONSEQUENCES ARE SO SEVERE THAT IT CAN ONLY BE CIRCUMVENTED
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2392);
  • 39:52 AND PURIFICATION CAN ONLY ENSUE THROUGH A PROCESS CALLED THE "ASHES OF THE RED HEIFER".
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2400);
  • 40:00 CHAIM HAS TRAVELED ALL THE WAY TO A SMALL TEXAS RANCH TO INSPECT A UNIQUE BREED OF CATTLE,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2406);
  • 40:06 WHICH HE FEELS MAY BE AN IMPORTANT LINK TO THE THIRD TEMPLE.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2410);
  • 40:10 THESE ARE THE RED HEIFERS, NOT PRESENTLY FOUND IN ISRAEL.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2414);
  • 40:15 IF THEY ARE PERFECT, WITHOUT SPOT OR BLEMISH,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2417);
  • 40:17 HE BELIEVES THEIR ASHES COULD SERVE TO PURIFY THE PRIESTS FOR SERVICE IN THE TEMPLE.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2423);
  • 40:24 CHAIM ASKS FOR GOD'S BLESSING.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2427);
  • 40:27 JEWISH SOURCES REVEAL THAT A MERE NINE PERFECT RED HEIFERS WERE USED IN THE WHOLE HISTORY OF THE JEWISH TEMPLE.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2435);
  • 40:35 BY ALL MODERN RECKONING, A PERFECT CREATURE, VALIDATED BY RABBIS
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2440);
  • 40:40 HAS NOT BEEN SEEN ON EARTH FOR AT LEAST 2000 YEARS.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2444);
  • 40:44 WE ARE LIVING NOW IN A TIME OF ACCELERATION OF THESE TIMES OF THE FOOTSTEPS OF THE MESSIAH
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2450);
  • 40:50 AND WE REALIZE THAT GOD IS DOING VERY GREAT THINGS.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2455);
  • 40:56 AND IT SHALL COME TO PASS IN THE LAST DAYS,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2457);
  • 40:58 THAT THE MOUNTAIN OF THE LORD'S HOUSE SHALL BE ESTABLISHED IN THE TOP OF THE MOUNTAINS,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2462);
  • 41:02 AND SHALL BE EXALTED ABOVE THE HILLS; AND ALL NATIONS SHALL FLOW UNTO IT.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2469);
  • 41:10 MICAH HARRARI AND HIS WIFE SHOSHANNA, IMMIGRATED TO ISRAEL IN 1982.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2475);
  • 41:15 THEY NOW FASHIONS HARPS MUCH LIKE THOSE OF BIBLICAL TIMES.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2479);
  • 41:20 WE'RE HOPING THAT IN THE NOT-TOO-DISTANT FUTURE,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2482);
  • 41:23 THE TEMPLE WILL BE REBUILT AND WE FEEL THAT THE WAY THINGS WORKED OUT,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2487);
  • 41:27 THAT WE WERE CALLED HERE TO BRING THE HARP BACK TO ISRAEL
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2489);
  • 41:30 AND IF WE'RE STILL AROUND AT THAT POINT, WE HOPE TO BE MAKING THE INSTRUMENTS FOR THE TEMPLE.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2503);
  • 41:43 THEY HAD A HUGE ORCHESTRA.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2504);
  • 41:44 CHILDREN WERE TRAINED FROM THE AGE OF THREE TO PLAY ON THE NEVEL, THE KINNOR, THE CYMBALS,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2509);
  • 41:49 THE SHOFAR AND THE SILVER TRUMPET AND THEY SANG.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2513);
  • 41:53 AND EVERY DAY THERE WERE TWO SACRIFICES
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2515);
  • 41:55 AND THEY NEVER HAD ANY SACRIFICE WITHOUT THE SOUND OF THE HARP.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2519);
  • 41:59 IT JUST COULDN'T HAPPEN.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2520);
  • 42:00 THEY HAD TO WAIT UNTIL IT DID.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2521);
  • 42:02 AND THEN ON THE VERY BIG HOLIDAYS PASSEAH, SHAVUOT, AND SUKKOTH
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2526);
  • 42:06 IT SAYS THE SOUND OF THE HARP WAS HEARD IN JERICHO
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2533);
  • 42:13 THIS IS THE DOOR OF THE HOLY PLACE AND INSIDE THE HALLOWED "KODESHEEM"-"THE HOLY OF HOLIES"
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2541);
  • 42:21 WHERE GOD DWELT AMONG HIS PEOPLE ON EARTH.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2544);
  • 42:25 AND ONCE A YEAR, THE HIGH PRIEST WOULD GO INTO THAT ROOM
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2547);
  • 42:28 AND MAKE A SACRIFICE AND CONFRONT ALMIGHTY GOD.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2551);
  • 42:32 AND THE NEW TESTAMENT TELLS US THAT THE HANGING CURTAIN,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2554);
  • 42:34 A VERY THICK HEAVY, LIKE A FIRE CURTAIN ON THE STAGE, CURTAIN IN FRONT OF THE "HOLY OF HOLIES"
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2560);
  • 42:40 WAS RENT IN TWO FROM TOP TO BOTTOM WHEN THE LORD WAS CRUCIFIED.

  • 42:48 THE SACRIFICIAL SHEDDING OF BLOOD HAS ALWAYS BEEN AN INTEGRAL PART OF TEMPLE WORSHIP.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2574);
  • 42:54 IT'S SIGNIFICANCE IN THE REDEMPTION OF THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2577);
  • 42:58 IS CLEARLY AN IMPORTANT SYMBOL IN THE ANNUAL REMEMBRANCE OF PASSOVER.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2582);
  • 43:02 GERSHON SALOMON HAS REINSTITUTED THIS SOLEMN OCCASION ON MOUNT ZION, OVERLOOKING THE TEMPLE MOUNT.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2589);
  • 43:10 THIS EVENT GOES VERY DEEP TO THE DEEPEST FEELINGS,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2595);
  • 43:15 EMOTIONS AND HISTORICAL EVENTS OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2601);
  • 43:21 UNFORTUNATELY, THE LAST YEAR WE COULD NOT MAKE IT
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2603);
  • 43:24 BECAUSE OF THE CIRCUMSTANCES ON THE TEMPLE MOUNT.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2607);
  • 43:28 THE THIRD TEMPLE WILL BE REBUILT
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2609);
  • 43:30 AND WE SHALL SACRIFICE THE PASSOVER SACRIFICE ON THE TEMPLE MOUNT.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2615);
  • 43:35 ACCORDING TO SCRIPTURE, ONLY THOSE FROM THE PRIESTLY TRIBE OF LEVI,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2618);
  • 43:39 OR DESCENDENTS OF AARON, WERE AUTHORIZED TO PERFORM THE SACRED SERVICES IN THE TEMPLE.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2625);
  • 43:46 AND ELEAZAR, THE SON OF AARON, THE PRIEST
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2628);
  • 43:48 SHALL BE CHIEF OVER THE CHIEF OF THE LEVITES,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2630);
  • 43:50 AND HAVE THE OVERSIGHT OF THEM THAT KEEP CHARGE OF THE SANCTUARY.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2635);
  • 43:56 BUT IS IT POSSIBLE, AFTER 3500 YEARS,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2638);
  • 43:58 TO BE SURE WHO IS A DESCENDENT OF AARON?
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2641);
  • 44:01 DR. KARL SKORESKI IS A NEPHROLOGIST AND RESEARCHER
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2644);
  • 44:05 AT RAPPAPORT FACULTY OF MEDICINE AND RESEARCH INSTITUTE, HAIFA.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2649);
  • 44:09 HIS RECENT DNA RESEARCH HAS LED TO A PECULIAR RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN SCIENCE
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2654);
  • 44:15 AND THE "COHANIM" OR PRIESTLY TRIBE OF LEVITES.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2659);
  • 44:19 WE WENT AND SAMPLED INDIVIDUALS FROM TUNISIA, MOROCCO, OTHER COUNTRIES IN NORTH AFRICA,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2664);
  • 44:25 WESTERN EUROPE, EASTERN EUROPE, EASTWARD INTO IRAN, IRAQ AND EVEN FARTHER INTO INDIA,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2672);
  • 44:33 YEMEN AND DESCENDENTS, NORTH AMERICA, THE UNITED KINGDOM
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2678);
  • 44:38 AND THE RESULTS WERE IDENTICAL IN ALL THE COMMUNITIES.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2682);
  • 44:42 IN OTHER WORDS, THERE WAS A HIGH PERCENTAGE,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2684);
  • 44:45 STATISTICALLY HIGHLY SIGNIFICANT PERCENTAGE OF SIMILARITY IN THE MARKERS FOR "COHANIM",
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2691);
  • 44:51 IRRESPECTIVE OF THEIR CURRENT COMMUNITY OF ORIGIN
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2696);
  • 44:57 INDICATING THAT THEY ALL CAME FROM A COMMON FOUNDER.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2702);
  • 45:03 DNA IS THE HEREDITY MATERIAL WHICH ALL HUMANS SHARE.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2706);
  • 45:07 SLIGHT DIFFERENCES IN DNA AMONG INDIVIDUALS ARE CALLED MARKERS.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2711);
  • 45:11 WE THEN WENT ON TO TRY TO CALCULATE THE DATE OF THE FOUNDING OF THIS DYNASTY
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2716);
  • 45:16 USING CERTAIN MOLECULAR BIOLOGY TOOLS COMBINED WITH CERTAIN CALCULATIONS AND NUMERICAL TOOLS
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2724);
  • 45:24 IN COLLABORATION WITH COLLEAGUES IN THE UNITED KINGDOM WHO ARE EXPERT IN THESE KINDS OF CALCULATIONS.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2730);
  • 45:30 AND THEN CAME UP WITH A ROUGH DATE FOR THE FOUNDER OF ABOUT 100 GENERATIONS BACK,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2735);
  • 45:35 OR SOMEWHERE IN THE 2,500 TO 3,000 YEARS AGO COINCIDING WITH THE TEMPLE PERIOD,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2741);
  • 45:41 POSSIBLY COINCIDING WITH AARON HIMSELF OR ONE OF AARON'S DESCENDENTS.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2747);
  • 45:48 IT'S LITTLE SURPRISE THAT THE MUSLIM'S TAKE ISSUE
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2750);
  • 45:51 WITH THE JEWISH THOUGHT OF BUILDING A THIRD TEMPLE.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2752);
  • 45:53 THEY DENY, IN FACT, THAT A TEMPLE ON THE MOUNT EVER EXISTED IN THE FIRST PLACE.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2758);
  • 45:58 HERE AT THE CENTER FOR CONTEMPORARY STUDIES,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2761);
  • 46:01 SHEIKH SALEH LUTFI STOPS FOR HIS PRAYER TO ALLAH
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2768);
  • 46:09 HE EXPRESSES HIS VIEWS ON THE TEMPLE IN ARABIC.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2772);
  • 46:13 THERE ARE MANY JEWISH CLAIMS ABOUT THE ALLEGED TEMPLE HERE.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2776);
  • 46:16 WE THINK THIS IS A THEORY, JEWISH THEORY,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2779);
  • 46:19 ABOUT THE TEMPLE, THERE IS FULL OF CONTRADICTIONS.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2782);
  • 46:22 WE'RE MAKING DEEP AND THOROUGH INVESTIGATIONS ABOUT AL-AQSA
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2785);
  • 46:26 TO REVEAL THE CONTRADICTIONS OF THIS THEORY AND IT'S INCORRECTNESS.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2790);
  • 46:31 THEY WANTED TO DEMOLISH 1400 YEARS BUILDING AS EXISTED,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2795);
  • 46:35 JUST BECAUSE THEY THINK ABOUT SOMETHING CALLED THE TEMPLE.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2798);
  • 46:39 SO THIS IS THE WAY PEOPLE, HOW THEY THINK HERE AND OTHERS HOW THEY THINK.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2807);
  • 46:48 THOSE PEOPLE LIVES FOR PEACE.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2810);
  • 46:50 THE OTHER LEADS TO WAR.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2812);
  • 46:53 2000 YEARS AGO, WHEN CHRIST WAS WANDERING IN THE STREETS OF JERUSALEM, WHAT DID HE SEE?
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2820);
  • 47:01 HE COULDN'T SEE ANY MOSQUE BECAUSE THE FIRST MOSQUE WAS CREATED ONLY 632 YEARS LATER.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2831);
  • 47:12 HE COULDN'T EVEN SEE ANY CHURCH BECAUSE WHEN CHRIST WAS ALIVE THERE WAS NO CHURCH YET.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2840);
  • 47:20 HE COULD SEE ONLY ONE THING IN JERUSALEM, THE JEWISH TEMPLE
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2845);
  • 47:25 BECAUSE IT EXISTED LONG BEFORE ANYTHING ELSE.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2848);
  • 47:28 AND STILL TODAY WE HAVE HEARD FROM THE HEZBOLLAH LEADER
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2853);
  • 47:34 THAT IN 20 YEARS ISRAEL WILL NOT EXIST ANYMORE.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2858);
  • 47:38 THAT IS THEIR AIM, THEY SAY IT IN PLAIN WORDS.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2863);
  • 47:43 AND FOR THAT, THEY HAVE TO SAY THAT THERE WAS NEVER A JEWISH TEMPLE,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2871);
  • 47:51 TO DESTROY ARCHEOLOGICAL EVIDENCE AND, SO ON.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2881);
  • 48:02 THE ORIGINAL TEMPLE SITE, OF COURSE, WAS THE THRESHING FLOOR OF EURINA, THE JEBUSITE.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2887);
  • 48:08 DAVID PURCHASED IT FROM HIM.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2889);
  • 48:09 AND YOU KNOW, ON THAT SAME SITE WHEAT IS STILL BEING SEPARATED FROM THE CHAFF.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2894);
  • 48:15 THE GLOBAL IMPLICATIONS OVER THE ARGUMENT OF THE TEMPLE SITE ARE WITH US EVERY DAY.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2903);
  • 48:24 RECENTLY THE MUSLIMS HAVE EXPANDED THEIR AREA OF WORSHIP ON THE MOUNT
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2908);
  • 48:28 BY DIGGING UNDER GROUND IN AN AREA KNOWN AS SOLOMON'S STABLES.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2912);
  • 48:33 THE NEW MOSQUE NOW EXTENDS OVER AN AREA OF ONE AND A HALF ACRES,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2916);
  • 48:37 MAKING IT THE LARGEST MOSQUE IN ISRAEL, ABLE TO ACCOMMODATE 10,000 PEOPLE.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2923);
  • 48:43 ARCHAEOLOGIST, GABRIEL BARKAI, SIFTS THROUGH THE DISCARDS OF THE TEMPLE MOUNT.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2928);
  • 48:49 HERE IN THIS VALLEY, UP HERE, WE SEE MODERN DUMPING AREA OF DEBRIS
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2936);
  • 48:57 WHICH ORIGINATES IN AN ARCHEOLOGICAL CRIME,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2939);
  • 49:00 IN AN EXCAVATION WHICH TOOK PLACE UPON THE TEMPLE MOUNT IN NOVEMBER OF 1999.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2946);
  • 49:07 FOLLOWING THAT EXCAVATION, WHICH WAS CARRIED OUT WITH HEAVY MACHINERY,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2952);
  • 49:12 AT THE ENTRANCE TO THE SO-CALLED SOLOMON'S STABLES,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2956);
  • 49:16 THE MUSLIM WAFQ CARRYING OUT THOSE EXCAVATIONS
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2960);
  • 49:20 DUMPED THE MATERIAL FROM THERE WITH DOZENS OF LORRIES
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2964);
  • 49:24 WHICH MOVED OUT THE MATERIAL FROM THE TEMPLE MOUNT,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2970);
  • 49:31 DUMPED IT IN DIFFERENT DUMPING SITES.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2973);
  • 49:33 THIS IS ONE OF THEM, THE MAIN ONE
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2976);
  • 49:36 THE AL-MARWANI MOSQUE WAS BUILT SUDDENLY, WITH NO ANNOUNCEMENT,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2980);
  • 49:40 BECAUSE IT WAS THE ONLY WAY IT COULD BE DONE.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2983);
  • 49:43 THIS IS THE ONLY WAY TO WORK WITH THE ISRAELI GOVERNMENT.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2986);
  • 49:47 WE HAVE TO IMPOSE THINGS UNDERGROUND AND THEN TALK ABOUT IT.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2992);
  • 49:53 THIS CARVED STONE FOUND AMONG THE RUINS,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,2995);
  • 49:55 DATES TO THE SECOND TEMPLE PERIOD AND IS THOUGHT TO BE PART OF A GATE CALLED LENTL.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,3001);
  • 50:02 THEY ARE PERHAPS THE MOST IMPORTANT ARCHEOLOGICAL REMAINS
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,3005);
  • 50:06 THAT EXIST ANY PLACE IN THE WHOLE WORLD.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,3008);
  • 50:09 THIS IS NOT JUST AN INDIVIDUAL POSSESSION OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE THAT WE ARE TRYING TO PROTECT.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,3015);
  • 50:15 IT'S A POSSESSION OF THE CULTURE OF THE WORLD, OF THE HERITAGE OF THE WORLD
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,3019);
  • 50:20 THAT ALL OF US WANT TO BE A PART OF.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,3022);
  • 50:23 THE GOAL IS BEYOND ANY DOUBT, OBVIOUS AND CLEAR.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,3026);
  • 50:26 IT IS ISLAMIZATION OF THE TEMPLE MOUNT AND CREATING FACTS,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,3031);
  • 50:32 AVOIDING ANY CIVILIZED PERSON FROM THE WORLD
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,3035);
  • 50:36 TO HAVE A SAY IN WHAT GOES ON UPON THE TEMPLE MOUNT.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,3040);
  • 50:41 CONTENTION FOR THIS HOLY SITE GROWS DAILY.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,3043);
  • 50:43 CLEARLY, THROUGHOUT THE WORLD, THOSE WHO ARE IN TOUCH WITH BIBLICAL PROPHECY
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,3047);
  • 50:48 HAVE THEIR FOCUS CENTERED ON THE HEART OF JERUSALEM AND THE MOUNTAIN OF THE LORD.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,3053);
  • 50:54 FAR FROM JERUSALEM, ATOP ANOTHER MOUNTAIN ON THE OUTSKIRTS OF FORT WORTH, TEXAS,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,3058);
  • 50:59 A CONGREGATION GATHERS TO PRAISE THE GOD OF ABRAHAM, ISAAC AND JACOB.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,3064);
  • 51:04 THE PASTOR, OILMAN, HAYSEED STEVENS.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,3066);
  • 51:07 WHATEVER MAN CAN DO, CERTAINLY GOD CAN DOUBLE. AMEN.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,3073);
  • 51:14 LIKE MANY OTHER GRASS ROOTS CHURCHES IN AMERICA,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,3076);
  • 51:16 THE "LIVING WAY" CHURCH FERVENTLY SUPPORTS A BIBLICAL VIEW OF THE TEMPLE MOUNT.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,3080);
  • 51:21 IN 1982, DURING HIS FIRST TOUR OF ISRAEL, HAYSEED MET WITH PRIME MINISTER MENACHEM BEGIN
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,3087);
  • 51:27 WHO CHALLENGED HIM TO DRILL FOR OIL IN ISRAEL.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,3092);
  • 51:32 THIS IS MY 77TH TRIP AND GOD HAS MOVED MIGHTILY.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,3095);
  • 51:36 WE HAVE SPENT LITERALLY MILLIONS OF DOLLARS AND NOW
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,3101);
  • 51:42 FOR THE FIRST TIME IN MY LIFE WE HAVE 200 SQUARE MILES OF LEASE LAND
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,3112);
  • 51:53 AT THE SOUTHWEST END OF THE DEAD SEA.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,3115);
  • 51:56 THIS IS THE AREA OF BIBLICAL SODOM AND GOMORRAH, FLOURISHING, BUT SINFUL CITIES,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,3121);
  • 52:02 WHICH WERE DESTROYED BY GOD IN A RAIN OF FIRE AND BRIMSTONE.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,3126);
  • 52:06 IT IS THE LOWEST ELEVATION ON EARTH.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,3130);
  • 52:10 ISRAELI GEOLOGIST, EFRAIM AHARONI.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,3134);
  • 52:15 THIS ROCK IS IMPREGNATED WITH ASPHALT
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,3136);
  • 52:17 AND THIS MEANS THAT OIL WAS GENERATED IN THIS PART OF THE WORLD IN ISRAEL
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,3141);
  • 52:22 IN THE DEAD SEA AREA AND THE OIL CAME APPARENTLY FROM SEVERAL THOUSAND METERS DEPTH
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,3148);
  • 52:28 AND CAME UP THROUGH FISSURES AND CRACKS IN THE ROCKS
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,3152);
  • 52:32 AND IMPREGNATED THE POROSITY WHICH IS IN THIS CONGLOMERATE.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,3156);
  • 52:36 WE ARE TALKING ABOUT BILLIONS OF BARRELS ARE POSSIBLE,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,3159);
  • 52:39 BILLIONS AND BILLIONS OF BARRELS OF OIL IN PLACE HERE.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,3164);
  • 52:45 HAYSEED IS PRESENTLY ASSEMBLING A DRILLING RIG AND CREW
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,3167);
  • 52:48 IN A SITE LOCATED ALONG COASTAL PLAIN OF ISRAEL.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,3170);
  • 52:51 ALTHOUGH HIS EFFORTS MAY APPEAR TO UNRELATED TO THE ISSUES OF JERUSALEM AND THE TEMPLE MOUNT
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,3176);
  • 52:57 HE IS QUICK TO CLARIFY THE CONNECTION.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,3180);
  • 53:00 IN EZEKIEL 16:53 GOD SAID
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,3182);
  • 53:03 "IN THE LAST DAYS I WILL CAUSE THE FORTUNES OF SODOM TO RETURN TO YOU ISRAEL."
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,3191);
  • 53:12 AND YOU KNOW, ODDLY ENOUGH, I BELIEVE A LOT OF THAT MONEY
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,3196);
  • 53:17 WILL BE UTILIZED TO BUILD THE THIRD TEMPLE.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,3199);
  • 53:20 THE REBUILDING OF THE TEMPLE IS A KEY EVENT FOR THE END TIME REVOLUTION
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,3206);
  • 53:26 AND IF NOT IN '67, IT WILL BE TOMORROW, MAYBE A SHORT TIME FROM NOW,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,3214);
  • 53:34 BUT IT WILL COME TO PASS AND NO ONE CAN STOP IT,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,3218);
  • 53:38 NOT THE ENEMIES OF ISRAEL, NOT THE LONG ARAB OCCUPATION OF THE TEMPLE MOUNT,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,3226);
  • 53:47 NOBODY.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,3228);
  • 53:48 GOD IS DETERMINED TO ACCOMPLISH IT.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,3230);
  • 53:50 HIS END TIME PLANS WILL COME TO PASS AND I TELL YOU IN THE LIFE OF OUR GENERATION.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,3236);
  • 53:56 I THINK WE NEED A TEMPLE TO HAVE SOMETHING MANIFEST ON EARTH THAT WE CAN RELATE TO.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,3243);
  • 54:03 GOD IS EVERYWHERE.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,3243);
  • 54:04 THERE'S NOWHERE THAT GOD DOES NOT DWELL IN THE FARTHEST UNIVERSES.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,3247);
  • 54:07 BUT YET, BEING FINITE PEOPLE WE NEED SOMETHING TO RELATE TO.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,3250);
  • 54:10 WE NEED A WAY, A PLACE TO GO TO CLEANSE OUR HEARTS, TO CLEANSE OUR SINS, TO HAVE A COMMUNITY.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,3257);
  • 54:17 THIS IS THE PLACE WHERE THE SERVICE OF GOD
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,3261);
  • 54:21 PERFORMED BY THE PRIESTS OF THIS HOLY NATION HAS TO TAKE PLACE, PERIOD.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,3270);
  • 54:30 THERE ARE MAYBE A GROWING NUMBER OF ORTHODOX JEWS
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,3273);
  • 54:33 WHO BELIEVE THAT THIS CRISIS IS COMING TO A CLIMAX.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,3277);
  • 54:38 THEY'RE READING THE SAME HEBREW PROPHETS THAT MANY CHRISTIANS ARE,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,3280);
  • 54:41 THAT SAY THAT THE FINAL ISSUE OF HISTORY, THE FINAL BATTLE OF HISTORY
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,3285);
  • 54:45 WILL BE OVER THE CITY OF JERUSALEM.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,3286);
  • 54:47 SOMETHING IN THIS CITY WILL TRIGGER IT AND THEY BELIEVE IT'S UNDOUBTEDLY THE TEMPLE MOUNT,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,3291);
  • 54:51 AS THE EVIDENCE SEEMS TO INDICATE.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,3294);
  • 54:54 SHMA, ISRAEL, SHMA, ISRAEL, LISTEN, ISRAEL.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,3300);
  • 55:01 THIS IS THE EXACT PLACE OF LISTENING, FOR HIM TO SPEAK.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,3309);
  • 55:10 WHO KNOWS? PERHAPS HE'S SPEAKING EVEN NOW.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,3315);
  • 55:16 UNLESS THE NOISES OF POLITICIANS, OF RABBIS, OF SHEIKS,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,3328);
  • 55:29 OF SHOOTING, OF STONES, PERHAPS WE COULD HEAR HIM EVEN NOW.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,3348);
  • 55:49 WE WANT TO BE CAREFUL TO EXPLAIN THAT NOONE KNOWS EXACTLY HOW THE THIRD TEMPLE WILL COME TO BE.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,3354);
  • 55:54 WE'RE NOT SAYING IT'S THE DISCOVERY OF ISRAELI OIL OR IT'S SOME ACT OF GOD.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,3360);
  • 56:01 BUT THERE ARE SOME CLUES.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,3361);
  • 56:02 THE BIBLE INTRODUCES US TO THE ANTICHRIST, THIS ILLUSIVE MAKER OF FALSE PEACE.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,3368);
  • 56:08 THE MEDIA WILL SURE HAVE A FIELD DAY WHEN THE ANTICHRIST ANNOUNCES THAT HE IS GOD.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,3373);
  • 56:13 THE BOOK OF THESSALONIANS TELLS US THIS ANNOUNCEMENT IS MADE IN THE TEMPLE
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,3377);
  • 56:18 AND THAT ESTABLISHES THAT THERE MUST BE A TEMPLE OF GOD AT THAT TIME.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,3383);
  • 56:23 THE BIBLE HAS BEEN ACCURATE IN 2000 OUT OF 2500 PROPHECIES SO FAR
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,3388);
  • 56:29 AND THE OTHER 500 IN THE END TIMES DEPEND ON THE TEMPLE MOUNT.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,3395);
  • 56:36 IT IS KEY.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,3396);
  • 56:37 IT IS NO ACCIDENT THAT THE TEMPLE SITE ATTRACTS ATTENTION.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,3400);
  • 56:40 FORCES ON EARTH AND IN HEAVEN GRAPPLE FOR IT, AS THEY GRAPPLE FOR EVERY SOUL.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,3406);
  • 56:46 IT'S TIME TO ALIGN YOURSELF WITH THE ONE WHO WILL KEEP YOU SAFE UNTIL THE END.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,3413);
  • 56:53 HE SAID LOOK UP, YOUR REDEMPTION DRAWETH NIGH.
