I’ve been polling my friends since I made the discovery on Wednesday that the place where Isaac was taken by Abraham to be sacrificed and the place where Solomon built the temple and the place where Jesus was crucified were all the same place: Mount Moriah. I have not found a single Christian friend that did not already know that. I have really smart friends! So now that I am up to speed on this, I want to highlight Mount Moriah on this Friday, the 10th day of Advent. It is undisputably the most sought-after piece of real estate in the world as Christians, Jews and Muslims call it sacred. The Muslim mosque, the Dome of the Rock, sits on the spot where the sacrifice of Isaac supposedly occurred and is located near Golgotha where Jesus was crucified.
Going to work now,
