“And He said to them, ‘Do you not see all these things? Truly I say to you, not one stone here will be left upon another, which will not be torn down’” (Matthew 24:2).
The words of Jesus to his followers regarding the Temple serve as a warning to present day disciples to beware of any theology seeking to rebuild a temple based religion with ruins from the past. The ultimate destruction of the Temple was but a validation that the old covenant was just that…old. We are advocates of the new covenant, written upon the hearts of men, and lived out by faith in the Spirit of grace and truth.
