Children who get spanked more likely to be violent toward future dating partners December 5, By Christopher Smith Gonzalez A parent who spanks a child may be teaching them the wrong lesson. A new study by researchers at The University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston found a link between children who experience corporal punishment and later perpetrate acts of dating violence.

The study is published in The Journal of Pediatrics. The current study adds to this knowledge by showing that being physical punished as a child is linked to perpetrating dating violence as a teen and young adult.

The large flat expanse was a base for Herod’s Temple, in the center. The view is from outside the Eastern Wall of the Temple Mount. The Temple Mount forms the northern portion of a very narrow spur of hill that slopes sharply downward from north to south. This artificial expansion resulted in a large flat expanse which today forms the eastern section of the Old City of Jerusalem.

Visiting The Temple Mount

Berthold Steinhilber Smithsonian Magazine Subscribe November Six miles from Urfa, an ancient city in southeastern Turkey, Klaus Schmidt has made one of the most startling archaeological discoveries of our time: The megaliths predate Stonehenge by some 6, years. The place is called Gobekli Tepe, and Schmidt, a German archaeologist who has been working here more than a decade, is convinced it’s the site of the world’s oldest temple.

Based on a number of topological and archaeological considerations, research by Dr. Asher Kaufman over the past two decades has resulted in serious consideration being given to a site feet to the north of the Dome of the Rock.

In 27 BC, the Roman Emperor Augustus supposedly took the unfathomable decision to build in the middle of nowhere the grandest and mightiest temple of antiquity, the Temple of Jupiter, whose platform, and big courtyard are retained by three walls containing twenty-seven limestone blocks, unequaled in size anywhere in the world, as they all weigh in excess of metric tons. Three of the blocks, however, weigh more than tons each.

This block trio is world-renowned as the “Trilithon”. If we think within the official academic framework of history, Augustus had no obvious reasons for selecting Baalbek as the temple’s building site. It was of no special religious significance, apart from being in the centre of a burial region, in the midst of thousands of rock cut tombs. But, lavishing great architecture on Baalbek then seems totally out of character for the undeniably selfish Rome, which had at the very same time been stealing historic treasures from other countries, such as the obelisks from Egypt.

It makes more sense that Baalbek had something no other place could offer, not even the city of Rome, the heart of the empire. This something may also be the reason why so many people wished to be buried there. Indeed, it has been noted that the blocks in the retaining wall of the Baalbek temple site clearly look a lot more eroded than the bona fide Roman ruins of the Temple of Jupiter, as well as those of the other two Roman temples also on the site. Therefore, the heavily eroded blocks should be much older.

Mur Cyclopeen a Balbek. The University of Chicago This fact naturally gives rise to a different scenario: At Baalbek Rome had found a fabulous ready made foundation, a mighty platform to add a suitably majestic structure to, stamping the Roman eagle upon the whole for the perception of future generations.

Material Evidence The much greater erosion of the big Baalbek blocks qualifies as material proof of their much greater age.

Destruction of the Temple On the saddest day in the Jewish calendar, the 9th of Av, the Temple burns to the ground. His son Titus now takes over the siege of Jerusalem. Titus attacks just after Passover in the year 70 CE, battering the city with his catapults which propel a rain of stone, iron and fire onto the population. By then, the city defenders are weakened from hunger and perhaps even more so from internal strife.

Even so, it takes Titus two months of intense fighting before he is able to breach the outer city walls reach the Temple Mount. The date for this event is 17th of the Hebrew month of Tammuz 1. To this day, religious Jews fast on the 17th of Tammuz in commemoration of this event. Roman historian, Deo Cassius, reports: Though a breach was made in the wall by means of engines, nevertheless the capture of the place did not immediately follow even then. On the contrary, the defenders killed great numbers [of Romans] who tried to crowd through the opening and they also set fire to some of the buildings nearby, hoping thus to check the further progress of the Romans.

Nevertheless, the soldiers, because of their superstition, did not immediately rush in but at last, under compulsion from Titus, they made their way inside. Then the Jews defended themselves much more vigorously than before, as if they had discovered a piece of rare good fortune in being able to fight near the Temple and fall in its defense.

A visitor to Israel attended a concert at the Moscovitz Auditorium and he was quite impressed with the architecture and acoustics. From , Greece was under control of the Italians, who by and large protected the Jews against the Germans.

Some Jews fled and hid in the countryside, but most were deported to Auschwitz. Jews had lived in Athens since the 3rd century BCE — the longest continuous Jewish presence in Europe; the remains of an ancient synagogue were found at the foot of the Acropolis.

According to the Hebrew Bible, Solomon’s Temple, also known as the First Temple, was the Holy Temple (Hebrew: בֵּית־הַמִּקְדָּשׁ ‬: Beit HaMikdash) in ancient Jerusalem before its destruction by Nebuchadnezzar II after the Siege of Jerusalem of BCE and its subsequent replacement with the Second Temple in the 6th century BCE.. The Hebrew Bible states that the temple was.

Exploration and archaeology[ edit ] Plan of the sanctuary The periegetic writer Pausanias briefly mentions the site in his writings of the 2nd century AD, but does not describe the sanctuary in detail as he does for many others. In , the young English architect Charles Robert Cockerell , finishing his education on his academic Grand Tour , and Baron Otto Magnus von Stackelberg removed the fallen fragmentary pediment sculptures.

Minor excavations of the east peribolos wall were carried out in during reconstruction of the last temple. The area of the sanctuary was defined and studied during these excavations. The area under the last temple could not be excavated, however, because that would have harmed the temple. In addition, significant remains from the Bronze Age were detected in pockets in the rocky surface of the hill. From to , an extensive second German excavation under Dieter Ohly was performed, leading to the discovery in of substantial remains of the older Archaic temple in the fill of the later terrace walls.

Ernst-Ludwig Schwandner and Martha Ohly were also associated with this dig, which continued after the death of Dieter Ohly until Sufficient remains were recovered to allow a complete architectural reconstruction of the structure to be extrapolated; the remains of the entablature and pediment of one end of the older temple have been reconstructed in the on-site museum.

The last form of the sanctuary covered an area of c. Bronze Age phase[ edit ] In its earliest phase of use during the Bronze Age , the eastern area of the hilltop was an unwalled, open-air sanctuary to a female fertility and agricultural deity.

Share The Latin form, templum , from which the English temple is derived, originally signified an uncovered area marked off by boundaries; especially the place marked off by the augurs to be excepted from all profane uses. Among the Remans the precincts of a temple were always quadrangular in ground plan; hence the so-called temple of Vesta, one of the most famous sanctuaries in Rome, being circular in plan, was not strictly a temple, but only an oedes sacra , or sacred building.

When the augurs had determined the boundaries of a temple-enclosure, the boundaries could not lawfully be interrupted except at one point, which was to serve as an entrance. To mark these boundaries no walls were needed; a formula spoken by the augur was sufficient, and from this ceremony came the phrase effari locum , literally, “to proclaim a place”, hence, to define and dedicate.

The temple mount has historical and religious significance for all three of the major Abrahamic religions: Judaism, Christianity and has particular religious significance for Judaism and Islam, and the competing claims of these faith communities has made it one .

Bedouin tribesmen living in and among the ancient ruins say the damage was caused when local men would open fire with rifles, seeking the loot thought to be inside the urn actually made of solid stone. There are dozens of tombs and other carved or constructed structures and sites within Petra. History The Nabataeans, before they were conquered and absorbed into the Roman Empire, controlled a vast tract of the Middle East from modern-day Israel and Jordan into the northern Arabian peninsula.

The remains of their innovative networks of water capture, storage, transport, and irrigation systems are found to this day throughout this area. Scholars know the Nabataeans were in Petra since at least B. Al-Muheisen, who has been excavating in Petra since and specializes in the Nabataean period, says no one has yet found any archaeological evidence dating back to the fourth century B. The earliest findings thus far date back only to the second and first centuries B.

But more clues remain beneath the surface. Researchers at the American Center of Oriental Research in Amman, the capital, are now analyzing the scrolls and hope they will shed light on life in Petra during this period. Once Rome formally took possession of Petra in A. The decay of the city continued, aided by earthquakes and the rise in importance of sea trade routes, and Petra reached its nadir near the close of the Byzantine Empire’s rule, around A.

Visitors today can see varying blends of Nabataean and Greco-Roman architectural styles in the city’s tombs, many of which were looted by thieves and their treasures thus lost. Today, local Bedouins selling tourist souvenirs hawk their wares not far from the place where Arabs believe Moses struck a rock with his staff, causing water to burst forth.

The site is located in Lehigh Gorge State Park and was being looted by local pot-hunters. We conducted a week long investigation to determine the extent of the destruction and to promote site preservation with local avocational archaeologists. It was determined that the upper levels, dating to the Transitional Period, had been destroyed but the Middle and Early Archaic levels were largely preserved and there was also a potential for a Paleoindian occupation.

Michael Stewart, professor of anthropology at Temple University and graduate student, Jeremy Koch, decided to organize a field school to conduct additional investigations at the site in Koch continued working at the site throughout the summer and fall of , assisted by several avocational archaeologists, notably Dell Beck and Tom Davies. During this time, they were able to get a pretty good handle on the geomorphology.

Every Egyptian temple had a sacred lake, and the one at Karnak Temple was the largest. Used daily by the priests for purification, the sacred lake was also used in festivals during which images of the gods would travel across the lake in boats.

The Apostle Paul, by Rembrandt In our previous study of arsenokoites, we listed the first 56 uses of the arsenokoit stem in extant Greek manuscripts to demonstrate that no ancient Greek writer used the word to mean lesbian or homosexual. As John MacArthur pointed out in a sermon on 1 Tim 2: What we do know with absolute certainty is that arseno-koitai did not mean lesbian or gay because it is never used with those meanings in any extant Greek manuscript available to us today.

There were a number of ancient Greek and Latin words Paul could have used in 1 Cor 6: In our study of malakoi we demonstrated that malakoi usually referred to cult prostitution or shrine prostitution or temple prostitution or moral weakness or some kind of softness which implied effeminacy but malakoi was rarely, if ever, used to refer to homosexuality. Now we examine the origin of the arsenokoit stem, an extremely rare Greek word which is used only twice in the New Testament.

Arsenokoites occurs only 77 times in extant Greek manuscripts in the first years of Greek history. It is therefore an extremely rare word. In 1 Cor 6: Although scholars are unsure of its provenance, there are two reasonable possibilities for the origin of the Greek word, arsenokoites or arsenokoitai. Hellenistic Greek speaking Jews coined the word from the Septuagint, a Greek translation of the Hebrew Old Testament, based on use of the two Greek roots of the word in Leviticus Sophocles That is the view of Evangelinus Apostolides Sophocles, a native Greek speaker and from to , distin-guished Harvard professor of Modern Greek Language and Philology.
