Bible readers have long pondered the complicated Temple vision in Ezekiel's last nine chapters. In an attempt to explain why this vision is in the Bible, this study focuses especially on what the prophet was explicitly told to show Israel---the Temple's “design,” “plan,” or “layout,” and in particular its “exits and entrances” (Ezek. 43:11).
Professional architect Emil Heller Henning, who has reflected on this Temple for some five decades, shows how two little-noticed, intersecting axes structure Ezekiel's complex plan and its system of “exits and entrances,” and frame a vivid symbolic portrait of God's eternal Covenant with Israel that looks forward to the Person and Work of the Messiah.
