Why was Esptein's temple blue and white? Why a gold dome? What does the symbolism represent?
2. Canaanites extracted purple dye from millions of various types of snails off the coasts of Lebanon and Syria. When left in the sun, the purple die turned blue.
3. The word “Canaan” might be etymologically connected to the Hurrian word, “Kanahu,” purple; and more certainly, “Phoenicia” means “purple land” in Greek. These Canaanites — later referred to as Phoenicians (purple people) — became known for this purple and blue dye.
4. This die was said to be worth more than its weight in gold, and they exported it extensively throughout the Mediterranean. jewishweek.timesofisrael.com/blue-heaven-2/
5. The snails were called Chilazon (also called hillazon, in Hebrew). This is the fish-like animal (snail) from which the ancient Israelites obtained the tekhelet dye as referenced in the Talmud.
6. The Mediterranean coast was the center of the dyeing industry in the ancient world. "Tyrian Purple" came from the port of Tyre in Phoenicia in what is now known as southern Lebanon.
7. It's flourishing maritime trade, and its dye and glass industries made Tyre very powerful and wealthy. We have learned that the color blue has been a sacred color over many milleniums:

•Signifies the color of Deity
•Mentioned repeatedly in the Holy Books
8. (color blue has been a sacred color over many milleniums)

•Worn by Jewish priests
•Worn by royalty
•Worn by many members of diverse religious groups across the globe
•Derives its name from the word "tekhelet", which is Hebrew for "perfection"
9. The Application of Light: I find this as wholly compelling...not because of the chemical color change, itself, but because much like mankind, when "light" was applied, the previous color (purple) was changed into tekhelet...sacred blue, the color of perfection.
10. Ptil Tekhelet Foundation: In 1993, and located in Jerusalem, Israel, the Foundation was formed for mass production of this tekhelet, as well as to continue further research into once again providing the Jewish people with true and pure tekhelet for their garments.
11. Approximately 30 Murex snails are needed to produce enough dye for a single garment's strands. This is in keeping with the Talmudic statement that "the dye is expensive."
12. Unlike many other dyes, the pure blue dye called tekhelet is also colorfast and does not fade. Three days in strong bleach will not change its color. Techelet is also the color of the Israeli national flag. masonic-lodge-of-education.com/masonic-blue.h…
13. Another connection: according to the FBI - the symbol for boy pedophilia resembles a blue snail wikileaks.org/wiki/FBI_pedop…
14. Among the many civilizations who practice(d) human sacrifice are the Mayans. The Maya associated the color blue with their rain deities. When they offered sacrifices to the god Chaak, they would paint them blue in hopes he would send rain to make corn grow.
15. The scientists think making Maya Blue was part of the sacrifice ritual. livescience.com/2322-secret-ma… The blue color, long a mystery to scientists and chemists, has finally had another piece of its creation decoded: dehydroindigo.
16. The chemical makeup probably mattered little to the people who created it, though, as the color had a major religious significance and was used to paint the naked bodies of human sacrifices before their hearts were torn from their chests. knowledgenuts.com/2014/03/17/the…
17. Naphtali Symbolism and Star of David/Seal of Solomon - In Judeo-Christian history, the Twelve Tribes of Israel were important. It was this confederation of tribes that established a permanent Israelite presence in Palestine and who eventually founded the Kingdom of Israel.
18. Each of the twelve tribes was defined by its leader, one of the twelve sons of Jacob. Naphtali was neglected more than the others. But, neglected or not, Naphtali went on with the rest of his brothers to found one of the great tribes of Israel. study.com/academy/lesson…
19. Naphtali left an imprint on the Old Testament through their exploits on the battle field. They provided one of the major workers on the Temple. Naphtali produced officials in both the courts of David and Solomon. Despite their later falling away from God, they were blessed.
20. Now king Solomon sent and brought Hiram from Tyre. HE was a widow's son from the tribe of Naphtali, and his father was a man of Tyre, a worker in bronze; and he was filled with wisdom and understanding and skill for doing any work in bronze
21. So he came to king Solomon and performed all his work. israel-a-history-of.com/naphtali.html
22. Oddly enough, Hiram of Tyre is referenced as one of the three pillars of Freemasonry. The 3 great symbolic pillars of Freemasonry allude to:
Wisdom: King Solomon
Strength: King Hiram of Tyre (see 1 Kings. 5:1; 2 Chronicles. 2:3).
Beauty: Hiram Abif, The Master Craftsman
23. Where did Solomon get his seal? The Seal of Solomon is the signet ring attributed to King Solomon in medieval Jewish tradition and in Islamic and Western occultism. It was often depicted in either a pentagram or hexagram shape. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seal_of_S…
24. The Seal of Solomon later became known as the Star of David. The symbol became representative of the worldwide Zionist community after it was chosen as the central symbol on a flag at the First Zionist Congress in 1897. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Star_of_D…
25. Solomon was the Son of David, one of God's chosen bloodlines. Solomon fell away from God and into the habits of his wives, worshipping. 4 For when Solomon was old his wives turned away his heart after other gods,
26. and his heart was not wholly true to the LORD his God, as was the heart of David his father. 5 For Solomon went after Ashtoreth the goddess of the Sidonians, and after Milcom the abomination of the Ammonites.
27. 6 So Solomon did what was evil in the sight of the LORD and did not wholly follow the LORD, as David his father had done. 7 Then Solomon built a high place for Chemosh the abomination of Moab, and for Molech the abomination of the Ammonites, on the mountain east of Jerusalem.
28. 8 And so he did for all his foreign wives, who made offerings and sacrificed to their gods. 1 Kings 11:4–8
29. Currently, The Dome of the Rock is situated in the center of the Temple Mount, the site of the Temple of Solomon. Hmm, a gold dome? Blue and white building? Interesting. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dome_of_t…
30. The Well of Souls (or Well of Spirits in Islam), also known in Christianity and Judaism by the time of the Crusades as the Holy of Holies, is a cave located inside the Foundation Stone under the Dome of the Rock shrine in Jerusalem. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Well_of_S…
31. More symbolism of the colors blue and white: Blue = human sacrifice or masculinity. White = innocence or purity. in5d.com/the-spiritual-…
🇬🇷 Greece and 🇮🇱 Israel - both BLUE AND WHITE. Greece has a long history with Israel. en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greeks_in…
