Scofield's Reference NotesScofield's Notes

Verse 1

the house of the Lord

The typology of the temple, if indeed it has any typical significance, is most obscure and difficult. The N.T. invariably expounds the typology of the tabernacle, not of the temple. The symbolism of the latter may be revealed in the kingdom-age (see "Kingdom" O.T., (See Scofield " :-") See Scofield " :-" N.T., ; Luke 1:32; 1 Corinthians 15:28. In the N.T. the usual Gk. word for sanctuary (naos) is used

(1) of the temple in Jerusalem Matthew 23:16.

(2) of the believer's body 1 Corinthians 3:16; 1 Corinthians 3:17; 1 Corinthians 6:19

(3) of the local church 2 Corinthians 6:16 and

(4) of the true church Ephesians 2:21 But in all these instances the thought is simply of a habitation of God. No reference to the structure of the temple, as in the case of the tabernacle Hebrews 9:1-39.

Zif

Second month, i.e. May.

Verse 4

windows of narrow lights

Cf. 2 Chronicles 4:20. In the holy of holies in the tabernacle no light but the shekinah glory was provided. In many ways Solomon's temple manifests the spiritual deterioration of the people, and Jehovah's condescension to it in grace.

Verse 27

they stretched forth Or, the cherubim stretched forth their wings.

Verse 37

Zif

Second month, i.e. May.

Verse 38

Bul

Eighth month i.e. November.
