The president of the PA denies that there was a Jewish Temple in Jerusalem and denies Christian theology

Listen to Today's Program Play

PA President Mahmoud Abbas in a recent speech denied that there was ever a Jewish Temple on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem which is part of a campaign to eradicate Jewish history at the Temple Mount as well as the rest of the land of Israel.

By Abbas' denial of the Jewish Temple at the same time he has undermined the teaching of the New Testament and the life of Jesus Christ because if there was no Temple in Jerusalem, the biblical account of Jesus chasing the money changers out of the Temple would mean that there would be no truth to biblical history and Christian theology.

Abbas has also stated that there will be no peace, security, or stability unless the Jewish occupiers, the settlements, and the settlers are evacuated from the Palestinian holy city of Jerusalem and its sacred site.

By denying that there was ever a Jewish Temple in Jerusalem the PA President Mahmoud Abbas not only denies Jewish history, Christian theology, but the truth of Bible prophecy as well.

PA President Mahmoud Abbas has been a person that stands in the face of history by first denying that the Holocaust ever took place. In recent years, Mahmoud Abbas has been leading the charge against biblical history in his denial of there ever being a Jewish presence on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. This denial contradicts both secular history and biblical history as well.

The Old Testament records the fact of the first Temple in Jerusalem being built by King Solomon, II Chronicles 3. Abbas contradicts the biblical account of the second Temple in Jerusalem built by Zerubbabel who led 50000 Jews back to Jerusalem from the Babylonian captivity in order to build the second Temple, Ezra 1-6. The Gospel of John tells us that Herod the Great took a number of years to refurbish the second Temple that stood in Jerusalem in the times of Jesus Christ, that's John 2:20.

In fact, the account of Jesus throwing the money changers out of the Temple found in John 2:13-16 took place at the beginning of the ministry of Jesus and a repeat of that same activity by Jesus at the end of His ministry, Matthew 21:12-13, proves that there was a Jewish Temple on the Temple Mount and Jews were present there for over 1000 years. Zechariah 6:12-13 says that Jesus Christ, a Jew, will return to the earth and build another Temple on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem

PA President Abbas is wrong. Bible prophecy has been and will be fulfilled.
