Easter Geography 2009: Virtually Visiting Second Temple Mount

The Second Temple plays a large role in early Christianity. It was there where Jesus made his stand against the Temple Priests and their interpretation of God's words and laws. It was near the temple where Pentecost occurred and the missionary zeal of Christianity was first realized.

Through computer technology and researching primary and secondary sources, it is now possible to view what Jesus, the Apostles, Priests, and others saw. The Jerusalem Archaeological Park has some panoramic views and so does The Israel Museum Jerusalem.
