Vision Video Herod's Temple: The Temple Jesus Knew (DVD)

Jerusalem rich in historical and Biblical heritage, is the home of the Temple Mount, one of the worlds most recognizable and visited sacred sites. Now, travel back in time to see it the way Jesus and his disciples did over 2,000 years ago. They knew it as Herod's temple. We remember it as the Temple Jesus knew. Imagine the scene as Jesus expelled the moneychangers from its outer court and as the veil of the temple leading to its holiest chamber was torn at the time of Christ's crucifixion.

Through the use of beautiful animation, the temple is reconstructed and we are brought within its precincts to identify with the experience of those living in Jesus' day. We also are confronted with the horror of the fiery destruction of the Temple by the Romans in A.D. 70. Through it all, we come to appreciate the central role of the Temple in the life of first century Jews and Christians.

This DVD has some good information but comes across somewhat boring. It does not illustrate the temple quite as well as I thought it would. The author believes the Church has picked up where the temple left off so there is little or no belief that the temple will be restored in the future. It does have some authentic Jewish music as a special feature.

A very nice computer animated reconstruction of Herold's Temple the one that Jesus and the Apostles had known. Not as polished as some other computer renderings but a nice 30 minute presentation. Extras include a model of the temple, music, plus an interview with Dr. Frederick Baltz, author and temple scholar who also provides background information and a computer rendered layout of the temple throughout the documentary. This will make a worthy addition to your reference library.It is worth its weight in gold to be able to visualize the temple during the first century period.I would also recommend Jesus: The Complete Story ISBN: 0-7907-9985-5 a 150 minute documentary which has excellent computer renderings and can be purchased at Amazon.com.
