On Earth As It Is In Heaven: Temple Symbolism in the New Testament. By Margaret Barker, Edinburgh, T&T Clark, 1995.

Temple Theology is an approach to biblical studies developed by Margaret Barker in her books starting from The Great High Priest (2003) and . On Earth as It Is in Heaven: Temple Symbolism in the New Testament. London: T&T Clark, 1995.

Temple Theology is an approach to biblical studies developed by Margaret Barker in her books starting from The Great High Priest (2003) and Temple Theology (2004). This approach identifies some elements of the theology and worship of the Jewish First Temple that endured beyond Josiah's reform and survived in both early Christian theology and liturgy and in gnosticism  .

On Earth as it is in Heaven: Temple Symbolism in the New Testament (Classic Reprints)

On Earth as it is in Heaven: Temple Symbolism in the New Testament (Classic Reprints). Central to the idea of the intersection that connects heaven and earth is the being who must embark upon the journey between the two. He must necessarily be-at least from the perspective of the earthly side of the veil-a human figure. In earliest times, this figure was likely the Israelite king, whose function was once that of the high priest (75).

This book breaks further new ground, showing how the symbols and rituals of the temple shaped the lives of the early Christians, and illustrates the striking relevance of temple theology to the New Testament. These include those written in the early churches; fragments from among the Dead Sea Scrolls; and Jewish text written in the early Christian period

Barker's second book, The Lost Prophet. The Book of Enoch and its Influence on Christianity, (London, SPCK 1988, reprinted Sheffield: Phoenix Press 2005) introduced the then virtually unknown book of Enoch to a wider public. Its teaching on the fallen angels and the origin of evil, the vision of God, the Son of Man and the original Cosmic Covenant, were shown to be key elements in the earliest Christianity. Back to top. The Gate of Heaven, 1991. She published these results in On Earth as it is in Heaven. Temple Symbolism in the New Testament (Edinburgh T&T Clark, 1995) in effect a supplement to The Gate of Heaven.

On Earth as It Is in Heaven (1995) is a book by Margaret Barker. This book, a supplement to Margaret Barker's The Gate of Heaven: The History and Symbolism of the Temple in Jerusalem, breaks further new ground, showing how the symbols and rituals of the temple shaped the lives of the early Christians, and illustrates the striking relevance of temple theology to the New Testament

As more and more is being discovered about the beginnings of Christianity, a whole new understanding of the context of Christian origins is emerging. Any serious student now needs a knowledge of the traditions of the temple. This book, a supplement to Margaret Barker's The Gate of Heaven: The History and Symbolism of the Temple in Jerusalem, breaks further new ground, showing how the symbols and rituals of the temple shaped the lives of the early Christians, and illustrates the striking relevance of temple theology to the New Testament. The influence of the temple cult has to be reconstructed by drawing on the increasing number of non-biblical texts now available. These include those written in the early churches; fragments from among the Dead Sea Scrolls; and Jewish texts written in the early Christian period. Piece by piece the world of the temple is emerging from this material. Through this close study of the Pseudepigrapha and other non-canonical writings, Margaret Barker examines four symbols of temple theology: Light, Life, Blood, and the Robes of Glory. She shows how details missing from the Old Testament descriptions can be recovered from other ancient texts to throw new light upon many significant passages of the Bible. This is a reprint of the volume published by T. & T. Clark in 1995.
  • Food for thought for any religionist seeking to understand the panorama of God's dealings with mankind over the milleania.

  • much the same as her other books but i did get things out of the book as i pondered and studied

  • I have readmost of her books and have found them to be most interesting. Would recommend them to anyone that has an interest in bibical history. ub
