Hi I’m Jonathan Lipnick, a professor at the Israel Institute of Biblical Studies, and today we’re going to talk about the most sacred site in Jerusalem: The Foundation Stone. According to an ancient medieval map of the world the Cosmos is organized according to a concentric scheme, where each of the three continents, Asia, Africa and Europe, revolve around a particular city, Jerusalem. And, at the center of that city, is a particular mountain known as the Temple Mount. And, at the center of that mountain, is a particular rock, known as the Foundation Stone, or, in Hebrew, ‘Even Ha Shtiyah’. Where is this stone, and what does it mean that it’s a foundation? If you come to Jerusalem today and visit the Old City, you can ascend the stairs of the Temple Mount and visit the Dome of the Rock, perhaps the most important site in all of Jerusalem today. Underneath that golden dome is a piece of exposed bedrock, which is the Foundation Stone. It’s the foundations of the Cosmos where, according to the Jewish tradition, God began to create the World in the Book of Genesis. It’s also the rock where, according to the Book of Genesis, Abraham came and almost sacrificed his son Isaac. And finally, it’s the rock where, according to the First Book of Kings, King Solomon came and built the first temple. So, what we have here, in the heart of Jerusalem’s Old City, is a true foundation. A foundation of God’s relationship with his chosen people, and a foundation for the Judeo-Christian tradition which began millennia ago.

Except for a few small problems. The Temple Mount is not the site of Solomon's Temple, the Wailing Wall is a wall of the Roman fortress, as the original and first re-built Temples are in the old portion of the city (300 (?) metres away from the Temple Mount). Also, the place where Abraham almost sacrificed his son is not on the Temple Mount, but on the same hill where Adam is supposedly buried, which is also where Yeshua was crucified – on Golgotha. Why use wrong info, when these things have already been proven otherwise? smh>
