Explore the world of the Second Temple in this slide set of Alec Garrard's breathtakingly beautiful model, built to a scale of 1:100. The model is located in Suffolk, England, but these slides allow us to walk the courts of the Temple built by Herod the Great. Garrard's model, which was ten years in the making, is based on the historical sources and research up to 1993 of Dr. Leen Ritmeyer, former architect of the Temple Mount excavations. (The latest research is incorporated into the new model portrayed in Slide Set 5. However, this slide set is still a valuable teaching aid, showing detail not possible in a smaller model).

The slides include stunning overviews of the entire Temple Mount and details such as the Court of the Priests, where the animals were prepared for sacrifice, the Golden Vine at the entrance to the Temple and the Eastern Gate. Scenes from the Bible are also brought to life with the help of strategically placed figures made to scale. A choice of text is available in the detailed caption booklet which accompanies the slide set, with the emphasis on either the Jewish or Christian background (please indicate your preference on the order form). Educators and students from as far afield as Sweden and Japan have written enthusiastically about the insights they have gained by using this resource.
