« Prev That Christ should be the house and temple of… Next »

15.  That Christ should be the house and temple of God, and that the old temple should cease, and the new one should begin.

In the second book of Kings: “And the word of the Lord came to Nathan, saying, Go and tell my servant David, Thus saith the Lord, Thou shalt not build me an house to dwell in; but it shall be, when thy days shall be fulfilled, and thou shalt sleep with thy fathers, I will raise up thy seed after thee, which shall come from thy bowels, and I will make ready his kingdom. He shall build me an house in my name, and I will raise up his throne for ever; and I will be to him for a father, and he shall be to me for a son: and his house shall obtain confidence, and his kingdom for evermore in my sight.”38783878    2 Sam. vii. 4, 5, 12–16. Also in the Gospel the Lord says: “There shall not be left in the temple one stone upon another that shall not be thrown down.”38793879    Matt. xxiv. 2. And “After three days another shall be raised up without hands.”38803880    John ii. 19; Mark xiv. 58.
