The Collonades to Herod's Temple History and the Bible

    • History

Josephus was given the job of recording history by the Romans because he was so accurate and detailed. Yet the Jews, and most Christians, choose to ignore his information about Herod's Temple. Josephus records that two arms or collonades extended from the Roman Antonia Fortress to the Temple. The model of Jerusalem and the Temple totally ignores this important feature and misleads people about the layout of Jerusalem and the Temple prior to the Roman destruction in 70 A.D.
