Temple of Doom; City Handed Over (Revelation 11:1-2)

Phillip Kayser, PhD, January 8, 2017
Part of the Revelation series, preached at a Sermon service

This sermon systematically eliminates over twenty theories commentators have developed for the first two verses of Revelation 11 and shows how it is a straightforward prophecy of the imminent destruction of the temple and everything explicitly related to the ceremonial law, while sparing the outlying walls and towers that were not directly related to the ceremonial law. Those outer courts would be occupied for exactly 42 months (AD 70-74) before the Romans handed the temple grounds and city back to rabbinic authorities that had negotiated with them. It is a foundational sermon for understanding the relationship of the temple to Biblical prophecy.
