It seems that I’ve been posting more videos than anything else lately (apologies to those who read this blog mainly by email or mobile device), but this latest video is definitely worth it (IMHO)!

“The Temple: Part 2 — Three Degrees of Glory”, produced by David Tayman ( and I, continues the series of videos discussing the ancient symbolism, doctrine, and rituals of the ancient temples, especially designed for those with a knowledge of, or interest in, the modern temples of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. This video actually comprises just the first section of Part 2, and addresses the topic of the differing levels of holiness set apart in the structure of the ancient temple, focusing here on the objects found in the court surrounding the temple, specifically, in this section, the bronze laver, or “sea”, and its symbolism.  Videos covering the great hall of the temple and the Holy of Holies will follow. LDS viewers will recognize parallels between the information presented about ancient temples and the restored doctrine of the “three degrees of glory.”

My great thanks to David Tayman for all his work in putting this presentation together!

Without further ado, here is The Temple: Part 2 — Three Degrees of Glory (section a, the Bronze Laver):
