History of The Temple Mount and the Jewish Temples
Central and Southern Sites for the First and Second Temples.
As the navel is set in the centre of the human body,
so is the land of Israel the navel of the world…
situated in the centre of the world,
and Jerusalem in the centre of the land of Israel,
and the sanctuary in the centre of Jerusalem,
and the holy place in the centre of the sanctuary,
and the ark in the centre of the holy place,
and the foundation stone before the holy place,
because from it the world was founded.

The Significance of the Temple for Christians
Asher Kaufmannpropsed in 2004 that the Jewish Temples were located North of the Dome of the Rock
–with the Muslim Dome of the Spirits the probable location of the Holy of Holies.
Asher was the first scholar to seriousy challenge tradition!
This view, our Location A, was recently revived by an American Evangelical, Christian Widener,
and is described on our page discussing the comingThird and Fourth Temples.
The Dome of the Rock, our Location B, is the traditional establishment opinion concerning the location of te First and Second Temples.
The authors of this web site respectfully disagree. Time will soon tell!
