In light of all the recent prophetic talk out there of the prospects of the third temple being built soon in light of Trump’s Jerusalem declaration, I want to note that the Greek word that the apostle Paul uses, naos, for “temple” in his second Thessalonian epistle does not require some large structure that would take a long time to be erected. It could be a tent-like structure that could be erected in a matter of days or weeks.
I devoted a program on Paul’s discussion of the temple in Episode 23 of The Biblical Prophecy Program. See below:
Why the Bible Teaches a Literal, Physical Temple (Naos) in 2 Thessalonians 2:4, Not a Figurative, Spiritual Temple – Ep. 23
