Well, let’s put it this way.
They’re building a “replica” of the Temple on the Dead Sea… that they can in a few months simply disassemble and relocate to Jerusalem.
We’ve got a Sanhedrin.
There’s a group of Levites with numbers 1 through however many for the role of High Priest. Hint – it’s going to be #1. Baruch Kahane is his name.
No kidding. This guy.
Training for the offerings… note the altar is there.
Offering of the Omer in a “Re-enactment”.
a Levite learning how to prepare the altar for burnt offerings.
No, we’re not close at all.
