- END OF THE WORLD: Jerusalem third temple ‘fulfils Biblical prophecy’ of the end times
by SEBASTIAN KETTLEY, https://www.express.co.uk/
FEARS of the approaching end times were fuelled by calls to build a third Jewish Holy Temple in Jerusalem, which some believe will happen before the end of the world.
Biblical conspiracy theorists believe the construction of a third Holy Temple in Jerusalem will precede the imminent return of Jesus Christ. Jewish eschatology concerning the end times claims the Holy Temple will rise up from the ground for the third time when the apocalypse nears. Talk of a third temple being built emerged this week in response to a letter penned by the powerful Jewish assembly of rabbis known as the Sanhedrin.
Jerusalem is heading into a mayoral election next week and the Sanhedrin urged both running candidates, Ofer Berkovich and Moshe Lion, to rebuild the temple.
The first two Holy Temples of Jerusalem were constructed on the city’s Temple Mount centuries ago but were razed to the ground by the Babylonians and the Romans respectively.
