Ezekiel's Description of Solomons Temple - Jerusalem
Far more detailed than the descriptions in Kings or Chronicles is the elaborate survey of the prophet Ezekiel, enabling indeed an accurate ground plan to be constructed; but this is avowedly of a vision temple, for Solomen's Temple was then destroyed and Ezekiel was in exile in Babylonia.
How far may this vision be taken in evidence for Solomon's Temple?
opinions give it great value for the prophet came of a priestly
family and must have been intimately familiar with the old Temple;
moreover, being an exile, he would be likely to be almost passionately
conservative. We may take it, therefore, that Ezekiel's is an
idealism version, based on fact and aided by a retentive memory.
