The Brick Testament: The Temple of Yahweh

Though it more commonly goes by the name of “Solomon’s Temple” or “The First Temple”, the true name of the most famous building endeavor from the reign of King Solomon is The Temple of Yahweh. And in this week’s update of The Brick Testament, the world can finally behold this sacred ancient monument in perhaps its most beautiful form, rendered entirely out of LEGO bricks. While Solomon spent seven years constructing this house for God, he spent nearly twice as long on a fancy-shmancy house for himself. Finally, at the end of this building spree, Yahweh himself appears to Solomon to give him a friendly reminder that if he or his descendants ever fail to follow The Law or worship any other god, he’ll eradicate Israel.
