Behold the Temple! asked me to write an article about the ESV Study Bible. It's now online: Behold the Temple, briefly exploring the relationship between Jesus and the Temple. (It begins with the observation that Jesus never actually entered the Temple proper--despite most people thinking he did.)

The article contains some illustrations of Jerusalem's Temple Mount that have not yet been posted online. You can see where Zechariah encountered the angel, where Jesus was dedicated, where Satan tempted Jesus to jump from the "pinnacle of the temple," where Jesus observed the widow putting her mite into the treasury, etc.
