Steps to the Temple
Leading up to the Temple of Herod, these steps have only recently been uncovered by archaeologists.
The temple area was divided into courts, and the outer courts stood on the lowest ground. Worshipers entered through various gates, including those that led upward from these steps into the outer courts and then into the inner courts. Thousands of people have ascended these steps over time, including the Son of God. When the army of Titus destroyed the temple in A.D. 70, the steps were covered with debris. They were uncovered during excavation of part of the old city of Jerusalem.
Significant Events:
Ezekiel saw in a vision the size and form of the future temple (Ezek. 40). (See Bible Dictionary, “Temple of Herod.”)
