The present-day Sanhedrin seeks to revive the ancient Temple rituals

The modern day Sanhedrin which was reestablished several years ago on the shores of the Sea of Galilee at Tiberius is beginning to renew the ancient Jewish High Court which existed until roughly 1,600 years ago.

The Sanhedrin has decided to purchase a herd of sheep for ritual sacrifice at the site of the temple on the eve of Passover, conditions on the Temple Mount permitting, the Passover sacrifice being relative to other works performed at the temple. Professor Hillel Weiss, spokesperson and member of the Sanhedrin, says that the sacrifice, even if symbolic is designed to demonstrate in a way that is obvious to all that the expectation of the temple rituals resuming is real and not just talk.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

Resumption of the Passover sacrifice under the leadership of the present-day Sanhedrin is a giant step closer to the fulfillment of Bible prophecy.

Several years ago when a group of religious, Jewish experts in Judas Prudence and biblical scholars gathered on the shores of the Sea of Galilee at Tiberius and re-formed the former Jewish high court of 2,000 years ago - the Sanhedrin - no one suggested that this was more than symbolic. The announcement that the Sanhedrin will purchase a herd of sheep for the ritual Passover sacrifice is key to the times in which we are living, a time when there could well be a Jewish temple erected on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.

The ancient Jewish prophet Ezekiel reveals that there will be a temple once again in Jerusalem during the coming 1,000 year Kingdom, that's Ezekiel 40-46. Daniel, also a Jewish prophet, wrote 2,500 years ago that there will be a temple before Ezekiel's temple during the seven year judgment period that is yet future, that's found in Daniel 9:27. For this next temple, the priests are prepared and standing by, all the implements are in storage, even a red heifer is ready for the purposes of instituting the temple activities.

With the Sanhedrin in place and making ready to resume temple sacrifices, we are indeed very close to Bible prophecy being fulfilled.
