An extraordinary journey through the temple, promised to David, fulfilled in Solomon. The place where it was built in ancient times was considered the center of the world. In many ways it has continued to be a center of history. Today it continues as a center of great reverence as well as great conflict. An understanding of the Temple in Jewish life and history is essential not only to understanding the Bible but also history and current events in Jerusalem today.

Quote from Josh McDowell: "Because of his desire to make his people known, God blessed the kingdom of Solomon above all others throughout the history of the world. At the center of Solomon's kingdom was the temple, which symbolized God's presence among His people and his unique blessing through the nation of Israel. The video Solomon's Temple captures the beauty and grandeur of the temple in a uniquely computer-generated format. It will help to understand the history of Israel as well as shed light on current events in Jerusalem today."
With its mind-boggling, computer-generated graphics, Solomon's Temple is your ticket to the ancient temple that was promised to David and fulfilled in Solomon. This holy center of history will come alive in Vision Video's 30-minute, full-color show. You'll "walk" through the colossal construction, even though the actual building was destroyed in 586 B.C. The graphics are so real that many scenes look more like the work of a camera than a computer. Much of the half-hour is a flashback, as an aged Solomon tells his son, Rehoboam, about the Temple's building. You'll rejoice there with the trumpeters and singers, your heart overflowing when the Presence of the Lord fills His holy site. You'll see the altar, the basin, the walls, the utensils, and more as Solomon's ragged voice shares his love of God and the wisdom for which the king was so famous. Excellent for upper elementary students and above, the video would make a fine addition to studies of Judaism, the roots of Christianity, Bible, ancient architecture, and the kings of Israel.
