But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. (2 Cor. 4:7 NIV)

God's temple in Jerusalem

God’s Temple: Past, Present, and Future

Under the Old Covenant the temple, and the tabernacle before it, served to symbolize God’s presence among the people. It was the focus of their worship. But the need for a separate physical structure disappeared at Pentecost when God’s Spirit took up his dwelling with a living temple made up of all believers.
