Widely regarded as one of the most significant religious sites in the world, the Temple Mount in Jerusalem serves as an intersection of sorts for three of the world’s major religions. But it is an intersection marked with bloody conflict. In these three episodes, we learn of the Temple’s tumultuous history – the building of the first Temple under King Solomon and its destruction, the completion of the second Temple in 516 BC, and the apocalyptic visions surrounding the possible creation of a third Temple. Filmed in Israel, Jordan and Morocco, the series pairs dramatic re-enactments with extensive interviews for a fascinating examination of the Mount’s past, present and potential future.
