History Temple in Jerusalem
The first temple in Jerusalem was built by King Solomon. It was destroyed by the Babylonians when they conquered Jerusalem and transported part of the population back to Babylonia. After they had returned to their homeland, they were allowed to rebuild the temple by the Persians, who were ruling at that time. This 'second temple' was completed in 515 BC. It stood in exactly the same place as Solomon's temple. Centuries later, King Herod (37-4 BC) reconstructed the temple, embellishing and enlarging the whole temple complex. Huge amounts of earth were heaped up. The enclosing walls bounded a space of 500 x 300 metres which had been constructed as splendid hypostyle halls. In these hypostyle halls religious instruction was given and trading was done. It is here that we must imagine the twelve-year-old Jesus listening attentively (Luke 2. 46), but also the tables of the moneychangers and merchants offering sacrificial animals (Mark 11. 15-17). The Roman soldiers were able to guard the temple from Fort Antonia, which was situated nearby and was somewhat higher in altitude (Acts 21. 27-40).
The large square outside the temple with its forecourts was also open to non-Jews. However, only Jews were allowed to go through the Beautiful Gate into the forecourts direct
