Concord is Harmony.

The kind of peace when each part

has its own voice.

My father in law Arthur R. Kreyling carried on the interest of his father Rev. Arthur L Kreyling about the Temple of the Lord in Jerusalem. In the 1930s his father had put together a teaching model of the Temple and a trailer to transport it to various churches. I have always been interested in history of all kinds and the technology, buildings, economics that enabled people to do what they have done. Hershel Shanks by his Biblical Archeological Review magazine has been a major force in bringing the discoveries of the researchers into popular appreciation. This work would not have been put together without his continual example and information. Finally, Messianic Jewish organizations have worked to bring the understanding of the Jesus in the historical context.

Dr. Paul L. Maier wrote several “documented historical novels” including “Pontius Pilate” and The Flames of Rome”. I would encourage the reader to get both. He combined the known historical data into a fictional narration. “As a documentary novel, it differs from regular historical fiction in that no (sic) liberties were taken with the facts.” Dan Brown’s novel “The Da Vinci Code” often used history contrary to the record, as if a novel was written with the hero Hitler opposing the tyranny of the mad dictators FDR and Churchill.

Dr. Maier included notes referring to sources. Now in the internet era, I have links the reader can follow. Dr. Maier only used names from the historical records, I made up some names. I have attempted to observe his other rules. “No portrayal of any personality, no description of any event and no episode or even detail contradicts known historical fact (unless by author’s error). Only where all evidence is lacking is ‘constructed history,’ based on probabilities, used to fill in the gaps.”

If the reader discovers any historical inaccuracy, please send me the corrections and evidence. Please feel free to pass it on to others. Thanks to my patient wife Lynne for repeatedly proofreading. I excel at creative spelling and punctuation.
