-=> John Prewett uttered blithely to Robert Curry the following:
RC> The stones are standing.
JP> The Temple ain't. I chalk the rest up to 'figure of speech'.
PS> How foolish. "If it doesn't jive exactly,
PS> just paint 'figure of speech' on it." Is this your approach?
Below, is a more knowledgable reply to this matter provided by Ken Wiens.
PS> Might as well stamp "figure of speech" on the accounts of the resurrection and every other soi-disant miracle that ever took place in the Bible, after all, there's no way that they could have occurred. ::
To: John Prewett From: Robert Curry Subj: a false prophet ::
RC> On (29 Aug 94) John Prewett wrote to Robert Curry...
JP> [Jesus] was sure on the money about Jerusalem and the temple. RC> So you think no stones are standing from the Temple?
JP> The Temple was torn down destroyed as per His prediction.
RC> "...not one stone shall be left here upon another, that shall
RC> not be thrown down." - attributed to Jesus (Matthew 24:2).
RC> See also Mark 13:2, Luke 21:6.
JP> The remaining part of a wall in no way bothers me.
RC> Why should a little thing like Jesus being a false prophet bother you?
RC> The stones are standing. Go knock 'em down.
Ken Wiens >>>
The stones of the buildings that made up the Temple complex are not standing. They were torn down per Jesus prophecy in 70 A.D. by Titus and the 80,000 Roman soldiers that accompanied him. The term translated "buildings" in the original Koine Greek in the passages you cite above very specifically refers to the buildings themselves, not the mount that supported the Temple.
If you don't believe me, go study the Greek for yourself. Study the term "oikodomas" and how it was used during both the Intertestamental period and the period of the New Testament.<<<
