I did not receive it from any man, nor was I taught it; rather, I received it by revelation from Jesus Christ. It can easily be argued that this means that Paul made it up, or derived his ideas from Jewish scripture and other religions.
Smith's Bible Dictionary Temple There is perhaps no building of the ancient world which has excited so much attention since the time of its destruction as the temple which Solomon built by Herod.
Its spoils were considered worthy of forming the principal illustration of one of the most beautiful of Roman triumphal arches, and Justinian's highest architectural ambition was that he might surpass it. Throughout the middle ages it influenced to a considerable degree the forms of Christian churches, and its peculiarities were the watchwords and rallying-points of all associations of builders.
When the French expedition to Egypt, int he first years of this century, had made the world familiar with the wonderful architectural remains of that country, every one jumped to the conclusion that Solomon's temple must have been designed after an Egyptian model.
The discoveries in Assyria by Botta and Layard have within the last twenty years given an entirely new direction to the researches of the restorers.
Unfortunately, however, no Assyrian temple has yet been exhumed of a nature to throw much light on this subject, and we are still forced to have recourse to the later buildings at Persepolis, or to general deductions from the style of the nearly contemporary secular buildings at Nineveh and elsewhere, for such illustrations as are available.
The gold and silver alone accumulated by David are at the lowest reckoned to have amounted to between two and three billion dollars, a sum which can be paralleled from secular history. Solomon, with the assistance of Hiram king of Tyre, commenced this great undertaking int he fourth year of his reign, B.
There wereJews and strangers employed on it --of Jews 30, by rotation 10, a month; of Canaanites , of whom 70, were bearers of burdens, 80, hewers of wood and stone, and overseers.
The parts were all prepared at a distance from the site of the building, and when they were brought together the whole immense structure was erected without the sound of hammer, axe or any tool of iron. The building occupied the site prepared for it by David, which had formerly been the threshing-floor of the Jebusite Ornan or Araunah, on Mount Moriah.
The whole area enclosed by the outer walls formed a square of about feet; but the sanctuary itself was comparatively small, inasmuch as it was intended only for the ministrations of the priests, the congregation of the people assembling in the courts.
In this and all other essential points the temple followed the model of the tabernacle, from which it differed chiefly by having chambers built about the sanctuary for the abode of the priests and attendants and the keeping of treasures and stores. In all its dimensions, length, breadth and height, the sanctuary itself was exactly double the size of the tabernacle, the ground plan measuring 80 cubits by 40, while that of the tabernacle was 40 by 20, and the height of the temple being 30 cubits, while that of the tabernacle was The front of the porch was supported, after the manner of some Egyptian temples, by the two great brazen pillars, Jachin and Boaz, 18 cubits high, with capitals of 5 cubits more, adorned with lily-work and pomegranates.
The whole interior was lines with woodwork richly carved and overlaid with gold. Indeed, both within and without the building was conspicuously chiefly by the lavish use of the gold of Ophir and Parvaim.

In the holy place, besides the altar of incense, which was made of cedar overlaid with gold there were seven golden candlesticks in stead of one, and the table of shew-bread was replaced by ten golden tables, bearing, besides the shew bread, the innumerable golden vessels for the service of the sanctuary.
The outer court was no doubt double the size of that of the tabernacle; and we may therefore safely assume that if was 10 cubits in height, cubits north and south, and east and west.
If contained an inner court, called the "court of the priests;" but the arrangement of the courts and of the porticos and gateways of the enclosure, though described by Josephus, belongs apparently to the temple of Herod.Give Us a King!

Joseph! Joseph! Even while they stood holding your blood spattered coat you weren't down for the count! Jesus was standing there saying: Joseph you will rise again and go forth and meet your brothers on a different footing!
