Prophecy of the Eastern Gate
SERMON TOPIC: Prophecy of the Eastern Gate
Speaker: Gavin Paynter
Date: 6 January 2013
Topic Groups: EASTERN GATE, PROPHECY, GATES OF JERUSALEM
Sermon synopsis: The current Eastern Gate (also called the Golden Gate) is the oldest of all the gates to Jerusalem. In Jesus' day, the gate was the main entrance into the Temple courtyards from the Kidron valley. And so the Eastern Gate was the one Jesus entered, in what is known as his Triumphal Entry into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday. But why has this gate been sealed for centuries and who did the Muslims hope to prevent from entering Jerusalem through this gate?
