A prospect of the city of Jerusalem, in it's spiritual building, beauty and glory.: Shewed in a sermon preach'd at Hartford in His Majesty's colony of Connecticut, May 13th, , being the anniversary day for electing the Honourable the governour, the deputy-governour, and the worshipful assistants there. James Carroll’s urgent, masterly Jerusalem, Jerusalem uncovers the history of the city and explores how it came to define culture in both the Middle East and America. Carroll shows how the New World was shaped by obsessions with Jerusalem, from Christopher Columbus’s search for a westward route to the city, to the fascination felt by American presidents from Abraham Lincoln /5(56). >The heavenly city The climax of the book of Revelation is the vision of the heavenly Jerusalem, a jewelled city of light. This beautiful vision signifies the church, the called out people of our Lord Jesus Christ, in all her eternal glory. Revelation 'Jerusalem, Jerusalem' Tells A Tale Of Two Cities Jerusalem has many identities — some real, some imagined. It's known as "the city of peace," but author James Carroll identifies it as the "home.
Biblical descriptions of the new Jerusalem are descriptions of the place Jesus has prepared for us. The new Jerusalem is heaven. So let’s examine what the bible says about this place: The Pearly Gates. The physical description of the new Jerusalem paints the picture of a city beyond compare in its magnificence and enormity. This significance has given the city its turbulent glory. Variant repetitions in Jerusalem’s history are strikingly frequent. In B.C., Nebuchadnezzar destroyed the Temple and deported the. I did not see a temple in the city, because the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple. The city does not need the sun or the moon to shine on it, for the glory of God gives it light, and the Lamb is its lamp. The nations will walk by its light, and the kings of the earth will bring their splendor into it.” (Revelation , ). The first aspect mentioned about the New Jerusalem in this passage is that its origin is in heaven: "the holy city Jerusalem coming down out of heaven from God" (Revelation ). Then we see a description of its beauty: "having the glory of God, its radiance like a most rare jewel, like a jasper, clear as crystal" (Revelation ).
It will be radiant with the light of God's glory shining through its jasper walls, its jeweled foundation, and its pearly gates. And this city, the New Jerusalem, will be the eternal abode of all who have placed their faith in Jesus Christ. All who have been saved will walk the street of gold in transformed, eternal, glorified bodies. Building Jerusalem: The Rise and Fall of the Victorian City by Tristram Hunt Weidenfeld & Nicholson £25, pp There is a great deal to admire about Building Jerusalem, but no aspect of Tristram Author: Roy Hattersley. James Carroll’s urgent, masterly Jerusalem, Jerusalem uncovers the ways in which the ancient city became a transcendent fantasy that ignites religious fervor unlike anywhere else on earth. That fervor animates American history as much as it does the Middle East, in the present as deeply as in the past/5. It reﬂects an essence embodied by no other city on the face of the earth. Long ago, Hebrew writer and Zionist Elhanan Leib Lewinsky declared, “Without Jerusalem, the land of Israel is as a body without a soul.” It’s true. Other national capitals may be things of beauty, bastions of power, centers of commerce and government.
