‚Äú‚ÄòThe glory of this present house will be greater than the glory of the former house,‚Äô says the LORD Almighty. ‚ÄòAnd in this place I will grant peace,‚Äô declares the LORD Almighty.‚Äù‚Äù
(Haggai 2.9, NIV)
The 1st Century Jews were looking for the Glory to fill the temple as it had been filled before, with fire so great that none of the priests could do their job. But 500 years later their hearts would be so hardened and they would be so prejudiced against Galilean Tektons, that they wouldn‚Äôt even see the Glory that would walk right in and teach them in a whole new way.
