The Stone and the Glory

Lessons on the Temple Presence and the Glory of God
We are on our way to Mount Zion, the city of the Great King. As with physical travelers over the centuries who would journey three times yearly to the great national feasts of Israel, we, too, have begun our own journey. But before we see the vistas of Jerusalem that God so delights in showing His children, we, too, have some land to traverse, but instead of walking miles to Jerusalem, our pilgrimage is through the pages of Scripture—often through some dark passages and often through obscure books for most readers of the Bible.
But as with the earthly pilgrims, our journey promises to be more than worth any effort we exert. How arduous it must have been during biblical times for mothers with small children or infants to travel up to one hundred miles or more on donkey or on foot. As the Jewish mothers no doubt used to encourage their weary and impatient children on their pilgrim- age to Jerusalem, “Hush, child! We are not there yet. We have a ways to go. Settle down. Be patient. It will be worth it when we arrive. We are going to the Holy City of God”—the same holds true for us.
But we have work to do. We must drop down into the Word “to see with their eyes and hear with their ears” the events and truths that God reveals. As always, God’s Word contains marvelous mysteries and markers that God Himself has set before us.
“In The Stone and the Glory, Greg Harris takes his readers on a profound journey through the Scriptures as they explore the glorious realities of the stone prophecies. The journey begins with Abraham on his way to Canaan; it continues with the Israelites wandering toward the Promised Land; it includes the glorious Temple, as well as the life of Christ in the days before His passion; it chronicles the stone prophecies in the book of Acts; and it culminates with Messiah’s return in glory.
Along the way, readers will joyfully find themselves identifying with the biblical characters, pondering how they would have responded if they themselves were living in Bible times. Like a skilled tour guide, Dr. Harris brings the Scripture to life in a way that insightfully weds biblical exegesis, Christ-centered theology, and practical application.
