THE Covenant of Grace
Bible readers have long pondered the complicated Temple vision in Ezekiel’s last nine chapters. In an attempt to explain why this vision is in the Bible, this study focuses especially on what the prophet was explicitly told to show Israel—the Temple’s “design,” “plan,” or “layout,” and in particular its “exits and entrances” (Ezek. 43:11). In these pages, a practicing professional architect who has pondered the Temple for some five decades shows how Ezekiel’s mysterious “plan,” with its complex system of “exits and entrances,” presents in symbolic forms a stunning visual portrait of God’s eternal Covenant with Israel and—through that—the work of Messiah.
Emil Heller Henning III was born in Boston in 1946, educated in the Baltimore Public Schools, and holds A.B. and Master of Architecture degrees from Washington University in St. Louis. He worked one summer in graduate school for a Boston firm that pioneered “wayfinding” concepts to help people navigate subway systems and sprawling building complexes. While there he assisted in the design of orientation maps and signs for a campus of over 100 interconnected buildings. For three years he was a Lieutenant in the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, after which he worked for architecture firms in North and South Carolina. He is today a Registered Architect in South Carolina, where he has a small architectural practice and serves as a Ruling Elder at Second Presbyterian Church (PCA) in Greenville, S.C.
