Chapter Summary

Perhaps one of the most painful aspects of Yigael Yadin's conflict with Ben Zion Wacholder, in the aftermath of the latter's publication of The Dawn of Qumran, resulted from Wacholder's challenge to the name Temple Scroll. Just as curious is the fact that even less information is included in Yadin's popular book on the Temple Scroll, which deals extensively with the structures around the Temple, the courtyards and the other cultic appurtenances and furnishings. This chapter outlines those features of the construction of the Temple that can be gathered from the fragmentary description in the scroll, and to compare these systematically to what is known from the descriptions of the Tabernacle, the Solomonic Temple, Ezekiel's Temple, Josephus and the Mishnah. A description of the storied structures is also found in Josephus's description of the Solomonic Temple.
