Now you can see the
inside of the Old Testament Temple that was built by King Solomon in 960
BC. You can see the Ark of the Covenant, the massive gold cherubim, the
huge pillars, the king's treasury, and the golden walls in this
painting. It was magnificent: 90 ft. long and covered with literally
tons of gold, silver, and precious stones that had been collected by
King David. It was to be a house of prayer for all people. God's glory
filled the Temple.
Artist Hugh Claycombe used the description in the Bible—as well as
artwork, art styles, and patterns used during the time of Solomon. He
collaborated with archaeologists and others, to reconstruct the
appearance of the Temple. In this new chart, a shaft of sunlight,
hitting the solid gold Temple floor, reveals its reflective power,
filling the magnificent interior with life and color, an awe-inspiring
place to pray and worship.
Within minutes, your students will know the key points and will grasp
the wonderful Old Testament symbolism. Jesus is our great high priest
and the perfect sacrifice for our sins. Perfect for teaching on the
life of kings David and Solomon.
