The Year of the Bible answers from last week:

  1. Which prophet tells us that a messenger will be sent to prepare the way before the appearance of the Lord? (Malachi tells us that a messenger will be sent.  Malachi 3:1.)
  2. Why will there be no temple in the new Jerusalem?(There will be no temple because the Lord God and the Lamb will themselves function as the temple, that is, the d and human beings meet.  Revelation 21-22).
