    On a slightly (barely) related note, is there a TIS way of understanding the new temple described in Ezekiel’s vision?

      I think that the new temple is a figurative way to depict the new heaven and new earth. The temple is a microcosm. A representation of the cosmos in miniature. Thus, the new heaven and new earth will be a cosmic temple, which is what Ezek 40-48 depicts, see also Rev 21-22.

      Blessings!
