You are in the sanctuary of Herod's Second Temple in the Court of Women, surrounded by colonnades and porticoes. Over your right shoulder is the Temple Treasury, where the widow deposited two mites into a Treasury collection box.
In front of you are fifteen semicircular steps where Levite priests chanted and sounded heralds; it existed that Jesus' moms and dads discovered their twelve-year-old kid in the midst of Temple instructors. At the top of the steps are the Corinthian brass doors of the Nicanor Gates overshadowed by the enforcing white marbled Second Temple. Only Temple priests could get in these sacred inner courts (the Altar of Sacrifice; the Court of Israel; and the Court of Priests.) Inside the Temple building are the Altar of Incense, the
Sanctuary. The Veil, and the Holy of Holies.
Coins of the Temple
By the time of the Second Temple reconstruction (19 B.C.- A.D. 70), coins had actually been made use of in the Holy Land for over 4 hundred years. A variety of coins were readily available in the surrounding and neighboring lands, consisting of Judea, Samaria, Galilee, and the Transjordan. In David Hendin's Guide to Biblical
Coins, 4th ed., the scriptural numismatic historian specifies the main silver coins of the period are the shekel and half shekel of Tyre; the Roman denarius; and numerous Seleucid and Nabatean coins. Â³ The bronze coins typically made use of as the little modification were Hasmonean and Seleucid mints (which frequently stayed in flow for more than 200 years.).
