in honor of Good Friday 2013, here is an excerpt from Jim Bishop's classic book The Day Christ Died
   

"Some of the ideas concerning the coming of the Messiah were confused. For example, many of the sages would proclaim that when all this had come to pass the city of Jerusalem would glitter in the sun and the Sabbath boundaries for walking would be marked with pearls and precious stones. The city and its walls would be moved upward to a height of about nine miles. The Messiah would decree the new temple which he would build and which, in all its beauty, would have five things restored: the Golden Candlestick, the Ark, the Heaven-lit fire on the sacrificial altar, the divine presence (Shechinah) and the Cherubim."

The Day Christ Died sounds really interesting. I've been wanting to read a book of this type since long, just for my background reading and I will definitely add this and keep an eye out for it. Thanks for sharing!
