Temple themes are prominent throughout the book of Revelation. Echoes from the Old Testament are conspicuously present in the revelation of John. Chart 17-4 lists these elements, together with their corresponding references, where applicable, from the Hebrew scriptures. It is difficult to understand the book of Revelation without a clear picture of the Jewish Temple. By the time this revelation was given to John, the temple in Jerusalem had been destroyed. Its eternal renewal and perpetual blessings were the hope and joy of the Revelator.
