The new heaven and new earth

Some interesting facts of the Temple and how the temple is described by the contemporary people like Josephus.

The way is the outer court.
The truth is the inner court.
The life is the Holy of Holies.

Jesus was saying he was the new temple. Hence no one comes to the father except through him.

The outer court is called the sea.
The inner court is called the earth.
The holy of Holies is the called the heaven.

That’s why in the book of revelation it says there is no sea.

When Jesus spoke about heaven and earth, he actually mentioned it twice. First in Matthew 5. He also said it here.

Matthew 24:35
Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.

Look at the preamble of the chapter.

Matthew 24:1-2

Jesus left the TEMPLE and was walking away when his disciples came up to him to call his attention to its buildings. “Do you see all these things?” he asked. “Truly I tell you, not one stone here will be left on another; every one will be thrown down.”

That’s how “heaven and earth” will pass away. This will happen to the temple.

“Do you see all these things?” he asked. “Truly I tell you, not one stone here will be left on another; every one will be thrown down.”

That happen in AD70. It was also the God moved his addressed into temples build not by human hands.

We are this new temple. We are this new “heaven and earth”.
