It seems to me that given the ornamental details of the Temple it would be easy to be overwhelmed with craftsmanship over the truer meaning and worship. How close are idol golden calves from proper? Even in a Temple inspired by the spirit, even with all the deeper symbolizes and cultural significances, can't these things be misunderstood and interrupted or worse corrupted? I guess that there is always that danger given the heart of man.
Nearly everything in the Old Testament is said to be a symbolic shadow/type of the real object in the New. What then would be the fulfillment of the Temple? Is it Christ? Is it the Church body? Is it the church building? Is it the Kingdom? Is it the heart of the born again believer? Is it the physical body of the believer? All of these things might well be considered, many have been identified as such in the texts. Could it be all the above? The Life and the Worship in and towards? The communion with God? The abode? God dwelling with man?
