Chapter Summary

One of the best known facts of ancient history is the destruction of the Jerusalem Temple in A.D. 70. If we had no record one way or the other, it would be inconceivable that Jews would make no effort to return to Temple worship at the end of the First Revolt. To be satisfied with the view that worship ceased altogether in A.D. 70, one must prove to oneself that circumstances presented an absolute barrier to such worship. As long and as often as the Jew in ancient times was able to continue Temple worship, he must (as history shows) adhere to it. In seeking a conclusion to the problem of continued Temple worship after A.D. 70, one of the major sources has been the Talmud. Scholars of the past have directed our attention to numerous rabbinic sayings which may cast light upon the problem.
