Chapter Summary

Among the many aspects of the Jews and Judaism that seemed odd to non-Jews in the ancient world, worship through offerings and sacrifices in the Temple in Jerusalem was not included. The Jerusalem Temple is in fact, or at least should be, much better known than any other temple system in the ancient world precisely because these later Jews and Christians preserved so much evidence about the way that the Temple operated. The Jews of Judaea and Galilee staged a sit-down strike to prevent a Roman army marching on Jerusalem with the statue. The Temple was also an institution of immense importance for those many Jews who were never able to visit the Temple at all because it was too far away.
