When building the Temple in Jerusalem, Solomon made sure to explain that it would not “contain God” in the way that pagan temples contained their gods. The Jewish Temple housed no idol, as did the pagan temples of his day. Israel’s God was not localized in any way, nor was He bound to any physical relic, such as the Ark. Please open your Bible to Second Chronicles chapter two, and listen as Pastor Ray Viola begins the study of Solomon’s Temple as described in chapters two through four.
