25 years ago Drs. Price and Ice wrote the book Ready to Rebuild, describing for the first time the plans by Orthodox Jews in Jerusalem to rebuild the Temple and how this fits with the prophetic scriptures that speak of a last days Temple before the return of the Messiah. Since that time the Temple Mount has been a continual source of conflict, making it today the main religious impediment to any peace process in the Middle East. Despite the ban by the Muslim Waqf on Jewish prayers at the site and the attempt to prevent even the mention of the Temple at the site by Jews or Christians, Jewish plans have continued to recover the site and rebuild the Temple.
This presentation by Dr. Price, first given at the Pre-Trib Research Center conference in Dallas this past December, explains why Jews have not yet accomplished their goal, but also reveals the latest attempts to make possible a soon rebuilding of the Temple. Dr. Price shows recent archaeological discoveries related to the Temple and its priesthood, political changes that affect the status of the Temple Mount, and the new work of organizations such as the Temple Institute to prepare for the resumption of the sacrificial system. The conclusion is that the Jewish People are “Still Ready to Rebuild.”
