I have been asked a question by a Church member that is a very good question that I have no answer for. The question is this: If Jesus was supposed to be a sacrifice for our sins (which he was) and he came to fulfill the law and the prophets, and the law states that any sacrifice outside of the temple is like murder and is unacceptable, then why did Jesus not be sacrificed in the temple, why outside of the temple? I only could say that this is where God wanted Christ to be crucified and that it was not the temple but was the holy mountain still and that the temple of the day was not the original temple but a rebuilt temple that was expanded upon by a gentile ruler named Herod. The temple was probably defiled. I also said that Jesus died for the world and that the temple was for Jewish sacrifices. If Jesus died in the temple then the impression would be given that the temple was still needed for even gentile worship. What is your opinion on the matter?
