Temple of Herod

There were lots of temples and they had a governmental purpose. The Second Temple expanded by Herod to be the Temple in Jerusalem was no exception.


Originally Israel only built a tabernacle that moved about. David started building a stone temple after the people rejected God in 1 Samuel 8 but repented. Solomon who increased the yoke of the people built the first temple and later in Ezra a modest Second Temple was built. Herod the Great would find the funds and a way to expand that temple of dead stone.

Those baptized into Herod's government went to Herod's temple to receive welfare and Social Security and other public benefits distributed through local synagogues. More on the two types of baptism.

Judea began following this Roman and ancient social model that reached back to the days of Babylon and Nimrod in earnest with Herod the Great's own free Bread and circuses with a system dependent upon registration through the synagogues and Temple in Jerusalem.

His system for the Jew would include Baptism, scribes to do the accounting and a Corban that would make the word of God to none effect. King Herod also built temple for the same function as his Temple in Jerusalem including King Herod's Temple to Roma and Augustus.

Herod the Great had a grand scheme of a vast membership in a social welfare scheme called Corban.[1] You joined with a ceremony of ritual baptism after filing an application for membership with the administering “scribe”.[2] Payment of prescribed fees was required and annual accounting of what you paid or did not pay was made available to the proper authorities.

With annual contributions collected and recorded by the scribes this system of individual sacrifice to support the needy of society became popular with many people who were jealous and envious of the rich or just covetous of their neighbor’s goods. With guaranteed entitlements and forced contributions the apathy and avarice of the people flourished.

Members were given a white stone as a form of national ID[3] and Herod was able to expand his hope of a kingdom of God on earth by this religious system of social security (Corban) which provided for a statutory enforcement and collection from membership in the form of a tax.

The actual carved stone used in the aqueduct that brought water into Jerusalem. Using public charity funds for this government project enraged the people to riot because they saw their Social Security.

Pilate "... used the sacred treasure of the temple, called corban (qorban), to pay for bringing water into Jerusalem by an aqueduct. A crowd came together and clamored against him..."[4] Because those funds were for their individual social welfare and the people complained.

Few understood that what should have been for their welfare had brought them into bondage though they had been warned centuries before in the sacred text.[5] Paul and others repeated that warning for the First century Church.[6] But Modern Christians are oblivious because they hire pastors who tickle their ears with Christian fables.

Building a central temple of dead stone was never a part of God's plan for men. It was Lively Stones of a Living Altar which is God's plan for mankind. Jesus Christ knew why the "ancient men" wept in Ezra 3:12 at the building of the Second Temple[7] and came to take the kingdom of God from the Pharisees and men who did not bear fruit and was building that original temple of lively stones with men of faith who let God write upon their heart and upon their minds.
