Study of the Jewish Temple is very important at present - but often studies remain at the archaeological level.
What has been less studied is the theological reason for the artefacts discovered by the archaeologists.
Margaret Barker, already a published expert in this area, gives a general introduction, and then focuses on four areas of meaning: Creation, Covenant, Atonement and Wisdom.
The book also discusses how Jesus related to the Temple.
