Biblical accounts of ancient temple use among Jews and Christians.
*God commanded Moses to build the Tabernacle.
*God commanded Solomon to build a Temple to replace the Tabernacle. It was completed about 1005 B.C. The Babylonians destroyed it by fire in 600 B.C.
*Cyrus and Darius built the new Temple, known as the "Temple of Zerubbabel". It was finished in 515 B.C.
*By 16 B.C. the Temple was in desperate need of repair. It was reconstructed during the reign of Herod I. This was the temple that Jesus and His apostles attended and taught in. The Romans destroyed it in 70 A.D. by fire. The temple site at Jerusalem is currently owned by Islam. The Muslim shrine that now sits in the center of the Temple Mount is known as "The Dome of the Rock". It was completed in 691 A.D.
* The Bible speaks of a restoration of Temple use in the last days before Christ's return.
*In June of 1833, God commanded Joseph Smith to build a new Temple. Today, they are filling the world.
