John 12:12-19; Christ’s Entrance into Jerusalem; “Hosanna: Blessed is the King of Israel that cometh in the Name of the Lord;” If He would have made a public entry, according to the state of a man of high degree, He should have rode in a chariot like that of Solomon’s, with pillars of silver, the bottom of gold, and the covering of purple; but, if we judge according to the fashion of this world, to be introduced thus was rather a disparagement than any honour to the king of Israel, for it seemed as if He would look great, and knew not how; His kingdom was not of this world, and therefore came not with outward pomp; He as now humbling Himself, but in His exalted state John sees Him in a vision on a white horse, with a bow and a crown.

Who will authorize the rebuilding of the Third Temple – The Islamic Mahdi, The Sanhedrin or A Prophet?

From JPost A new Jewish interfaith initiative launched last week argues building the Third Jewish Temple in Jerusalem would not necessitate the destruction of the Dome of the Rock.
