TEMPLE THEOLOGY

Margaret Barker

Temple theology refers to a faith, based on the first Jerusalem Temple, which the author (an independent biblical scholar) has discovered within the Old Testament and Jewish pseudepigrapha (The Books of Enoch), along with the Dead Sea Scrolls, the New Testament and later work. This theology looked back to the faith of Abraham and Melchizedek; it was lost to sight as the Mosaic and Deuteronomist strands of Jewish religion took pride of place. Yet, according to the author, it can be detected in some of Jesus's sayings and in Revelation. Indeed, she explains, it provided a framework for the speedy development of key Christian doctrines such as the Trinity and the Atonement. This is a book for those with deep theological interests. Only by a very circuitous route might it bring more into the Kingdom.
