Greetings folks. It’s been a while since I’ve posted and I thought it was time to continue on to the conclusion of this blogging project. My family challenged me to try to build a visual representation of Ezekiel’s Temple from his series of visions beginning with Ezekiel chapter 40. So I used the video game Minecraft to create this video which is a fly-through of a 1/4 size replica based on the dimensions Ezekiel provided.
It was an interesting exercise. By making the words take actual shape, it was possible to see that there were other concerns that Ezekiel was addressing rather than only architectural requirements. As you walk through the complex, some things about how he envisioned religious life should be become more clear.
You can get to it here at Ezekiel Temple Minecraft Tour Chapter 40
This first video gives just an overview of the complex itself – much like the gist of chapter 40. In my next videos, I’ll continue the tour as Ezekiel himself describes his vision. Along the way, I’ll share some points that we can infer from how things are designed.
Note: If you follow my blog, and are Native/Indigenious, be sure to take note of how the Temple is oriented with regard to the directions. It might be of interest to you.
