A very strange circumstance is found in this last post: namely, why doesn't Christianity have a valid claim to the Temple Mount?
Simple: find the Scripture, either in the Old Testament (which for the records deeds Mount Moriah to the Hebrew people) nor in the New Covenant, where one might have expected Yeshua to make that claim; except He clams My Father's (Abba) house is a house of prayer. It is in Aramaic and Greek, not in Latin.
