What can you tell me about the First Temple in Jerusalem?
>>
>>523212

It had a room called the Holy of Holies where the Ark of the Covenant was allegedly kept and nobody except the High Priest on Yom Kippur was allowed in there.

The reason Jews aren't allowed onto the Temple Mount today is in case they accidentally tread on the ground where the Holy of Holies once was.

It was where the Jews laid their eggs...luckily the Romans burned it down so no Jewish monsters arose

It was built by polytheists, temples in Solomon's period have been found that are dedicated to Ishtar.

The Jews were largely polytheists, the prophets were monotheist.

First Temple was destroyed by Baylonians, bro.

It was huge business for the jewish priests. Currency changing, money lending, selling sacrificial animals, basically a one stop shop for the traveling faithful.

Nobody knows for sure. But they more often say Assyrians than Babylonians. The jews sought refuge in Babylon after all

Nobody says it was the Assyrians; those guys overran the northern kingdom, not the southern one.

Not really anything. because historical sources on it are all minimal, and no excavations have been done.

The description in the Bible is probably inaccurate, though. It's doubtful Judaism at the time was centralized in Jerusalem (the areas to the north were always wealthier and more powerful), and Judaism was probably at least somewhat polytheistic at the time. In general, it's somewhat doubtful that the United Monarchy existed, and if it did, it wasn't wealthy or very powerful, so Solomon (if he existed) probably couldn't have built a very ornate temple. It probably existed, but could have just been a simple regional place of worship.
>>
>>523308
You have to remember, the Kingdom of Israel wasn't explicitly monotheistic. They only worshiped Yahweh officially as a patron god, but they recognized others. This led to some very odd traditions regarding the mythos of it all that is often overlooked today, especially when it came to things like angels and other divine entities.
Also, the laws against idolatry have to be understood in context. Many Mesopotamian religions of the time literally worshiped the physical idols in question: they would feed, clean, and care for it as though it were living, because they thought them to be physical embodiments of their local gods. That was the sort of worship that such laws were meant to prevent.

A Temple for ants?

It needs to be at least twice as many cubits.

Hence Babylon became the Whore of all Nations hoarding all the relics and gods of the region in their capital.

This was Centralization of government whereas the liberators, the Persians practiced Decentralization who funded the building of the 2nd temple in Jerusalem.

Today America does the same with Money and Politics.
>>
>>523212
It was probably nothing special irl, just a less ornate variation on other near eastern temples of the day.
Jews like to exaggerate their importance on the world stage, especially in ancient times. They were insignificant compared to their OP neighbors.

These laws were housed in an Ark that had two Cherubim on in. Oh, and the Ark was venerated as a religious icon.

The commandment "no graven image" is obviously about idols, not icons, since God himself made made in his own image (the Greek word used there is where the word "icon" comes from).

Excellent sourcing there, that has really flipped my opinion on everything.

This is what you implied:
>Amorites were an important group in Bronze Age Mesopotamia
>Iron Age Hebrews are (according to the Bible) a descendant group
>This means Hebrews are credited with Amorite accomplishments
You might be the dumbest poster on the board right now.

>The Amorites of the Bible are depicted as pre-Israelite inhabitants of the land of Canaan and clearly separate from the Israelites.
>If modern-day scholarship is accurate about the patriarchs of Israel descending from the Amorites, then there must have been some reason why the Hebrew scribes went to so much trouble to separate their own identity from that of the Amorites.
>In virtually every reference, then, the Amorites were considered `the other’ by the Hebrew scribes, and this tradition continued for centuries down to the creation of the Talmud in which Jews are prohibited from engaging in Amorite practices.
Even your own source says there is a distinction. Whether they are descended from them or not is fucking irrelevant anyway, Solomon's kingdom in the 800s BC has nothing to do with the Amorites who lived a thousand years before.

the star of david actually is a representation of the four elements (one is a triangle, the other a triangle upside down, and the other two are the same with a line near the top/bottom). It wasn't a big symbol among jews until the 20th century anyway, just like hanuka wasn't that important until they felt the need to fight/be part of christmas.

>Judaism was probably at least somewhat polytheistic at the time

depends on the brand of judaism, the time, and the place. the old testament talks about how the hebrews were constantly worshiping other gods all the time, often along with Yahweh, but monotheism was definitely always practiced by other hebrews, even if they were the minority at times.

Not at that time. Plenty of scholars agree that Judaism wasn't monotheistic until the Babylonian captivity.
