Slide 1

In the 25th year of exile in Babylon, God brought Ezekiel to Israel in a vision. He saw a ‘man with the appearance of bronze’ holding a linen cord and measuring rod in his hand. Ezekiel was shown a wall all around the outside of the Temple area. The length of the measuring rod in the man's hand was six long cubits, each being a cubit and a handbreadth in length. The ‘man’ measured the thickness of the wall, as one reed (10.2ft - 3.108m) and the height as one reed. – Slide 1

Slide 2

Then he went into the gateway facing east, going up its steps, and measured the threshold of the gate, one reed deep. – Slide 2

Slide 3

The side rooms were one reed long and one reed broad. The space between the side rooms was five cubits. The threshold of the gate at the inner end was one reed. – Slide 3

Slide 4

The vestibule of the gateway, on the inside, was one reed. The vestibule of the inner gateway measured 8 cubits and its jambs, 2 cubits. – Slide 4

Slide 5

There were three guard chambers of the same size on either side of the East Gate. – Slide 5

Slide 6

The side pillars between the rooms were of the same size also. – Slide 6

Slide 7

The opening of the gateway was 10 cubits and the length 13 cubits. – Slide 7

Slide 8

There was a low barrier in front of each of the side rooms, one cubit high. Each room was 6 cubits square. – Slide 8

Slide 9

The width of the gateway was 25 cubits from one parapet opening to the opposite one. – Slide 9

Slide 10

The ‘man’ measured along the faces of the projecting walls all around the inside of the gateway – sixty cubits. – Slide 10

Slide 11

The distance from the entrance of the gateway to the far end of its portico was fifty cubits. – Slide 11

Slide 12

There were windows that narrowed inward through the walls along both sides of the passageway and along the guardroom walls. The windows were also in the exit and in the entrance halls. – Slide 12

Slide 13

The faces of the projecting walls were decorated with palm trees. – Slide 13

Slide 14

In the vision Ezekiel was taken through the passageway to the inner courtyard. – Slide 14

Slide 15

A stone pavement, called the lower pavement, ran around the inner courtyard. – Slide 15

Slide 16

Thirty rooms were built against the walls, opening onto this pavement. – Slide 16

Slide 17

The pavement was the same length as the gates. – Slide 17

Slide 18

There was a gateway at a higher level that led to the inner courtyard. The man measured the distance between the two gateways, as 100 cubits. – Slide 18

Slide 19

Then the ‘man’ measured the gateway on the north side that led into the outer courtyard. It had the same measurements as those in the East Gateway. The entrance room, the windows, and the carved palm trees were like those in the east gate. Seven steps led up to the gate. – Slide 19

Slide 20

Across the courtyard from this north gateway was another gateway leading to the inner courtyard, just as there was on the east side. The man measured the distance between these two gateways, and it was 100 cubits. – Slide 20

Slide 21

Next, the ‘man’ took Ezekiel to the south side where he saw another gateway the same size and decoration as the East and North Gates. Seven steps led up to it. – Slide 21

Slide 22

The ‘man’ took Ezekiel through the south gateway into the inner courtyard. He measured the gateway, and it was the same size as the gateways in the outer wall. – Slide 22

Slide 23

Ezekiel was then taken through the East Gate to the inner courtyard. Its guardrooms, its entrance room, and its inner walls measured the same as those in the other gateways. Palm trees were carved on the walls along the passageway. Eight steps led up to this gate. – Slide 23

Slide 24

The ‘man’ then took Ezekiel to the North Gateway. It was the same size as the others and like them, had guardrooms, decorated inner walls, an entrance room, and windows all around. Eight steps led up to this gate. – Slide 24

Slide 25

In the outer courtyard there was an annex on the north side. It opened into the entrance room that faced the courtyard, and there they washed the carcasses of the animals to be burned whole as sacrifices. – Slide 25

Slide 26

In the porch of the gate were four tables, two on each side of the room. It was on these tables that they killed the animals to be offered as sacrifices. – Slide 26

Slide 27

Outside the entry hall, on each side of the stairs going up to the north entrance, there were two more tables. So, in all there were eight tables, four inside and four outside, where the sacrifices were cut up and prepared. – Slide 27

Slide 28

There were also four stone tables where the butchering knives and other implements were laid. – Slide 28

Slide 29

These stone tables were 1 cubit. – Slide 29

Slide 30

They had an overlapping ledge the width of a hand. – Slide 30

Slide 31

In the inner court there stood a building beside the northern entrance, facing south, for the priests who guarded the temple. – Slide 31

Slide 32

Beside the southern entrance, facing north, was the room for the priests who guarded the altar. – Slide 32

Slide 33

Ezekiel was then brought to the entrance hall of the Temple. Ten steps led up to it from the inner court. Its walls extended up on either side to form two pillars. – Slide 33

Slide 34

The projecting walls were 3 cubits wide. – Slide 34

Slide 35

The entry hall was 20 cubits wide … – Slide 35

Slide 36

… and 11 cubits deep. – Slide 36
