    Abstract:
    Heavenly sanctuary, earthly sanctuary – has not all been said from an Adventist point of view? It is astonishing that to date there is no comprehensive, scholarly collection analysing the pertinent references that includes not only biblical findings but also ancient Near Eastern (ANE) and early Jewish litera-ture. This has now changed due to this fundamental work on the relationship between the heavenly and earthly sanctuary. By providing lexeme and other linguistic studies, motif studies considering stylistic devices, as well as inter-disciplinary comparisons, this work traces Jewish, Christian and ANE temple conceptions. With an almost detective-like instinct, the authors uncover astonishing details.
