Journal Through the Bible: Week 93 Monday

II Chronicles chapter 3

The Temple was built on Mount Moriah on the land that had formerly belonged to Ornan the Jebusite. This was where David built an altar after the plague was stopped when he was punished for taking the census. It is also where Abraham was commanded to offer Isaac many years earlier.

Does God issue any commands?
God did not speak in this chapter.

Does God make any promises?
God did not speak in this chapter.

Does this chapter teach anything about Jesus?

  • The pattern design of the Temple was very much like that of the tabernacle except that it was made from more durable material such as stone as opposed to curtains of cloth, but the design, ornamentation, and furnishings were meant to draw the worshiper's attention to the atonement to be made by the coming Messiah.

Does this chapter teach anything about yet-future events?

  • Solomon's temple was built upon Mount Moriah. A future temple will also be built there as Revelation 11:1-2 indicates.
