Yoel demonstrates the importance of unity as he walks us through the acts of King Jeroboam, who departs from Torah and causes division in the kingdom of God with alternative places of worship, calendar, and priesthood.  Also, Yoel answers temple questions from the members of the 3T Tour with Keith Johnson and Jono Vandor, March 2013.

Yoel and Jono address the debate about the Temple Mount, examining evidence for its location from Muslim sources, as well as tradition, archaeology, and biblical history.  Also, is Temple Mount still holy in its present condition?

In 2013 I had the pleasure of studying archaeology under Dr. Chaya Katz of the Open U, and do archaeological studies in actual sites under Dr. Amit Dagan of the Bar-Illan U.  One of the sites we studied was Khirbet Qeiyafa near the the Elah Valley.  On the site Dr. Yoseph Garfinkel has discovered portable temples made of clay which might represent temples which were common in Israel.  If this is true, we might be looking at a prototype temple which was used as the model for the Temple of Solomon.

A question which I deal with every year, but do not have a conclusive answer:  How old did the Pesach lamb have to be?
