The Temple in Jerusalem
I love BLDGBLOG. It's the greatest. In a recent interview, there is a Roman wall carving showing the sack of Jerusalem. It's showing an event from Biblical prophecy from another side. It makes it more real, a stereo viewpoint that makes the flat pictures seem to exist in space. It makes me think about other stories, and what the people involved thought. What did the people in Jericho think when they were attacked by the Israelites? What was the Egyptian impression of the Exodus? I've wondered about the centurion who nailed Christ's hands to the cross: did he realize, as he felt for the gap in the bones in the wrist, that what he was doing would become something sacred?
