What part of our body is the temple? When we are speaking of anatomy, The Temple indicates the side of the head behind the eyes.
‘The temple is a latch where four skull bones fuse: the frontal, parietal, temporal, and sphenoid. It is located on the side of the head behind the eye between the forehead and the ear. The temporal (temporalis) muscle covers this area and is used during mastication (chewing). ‘Regarding the temporalis muscle: in English, this muscle’s name is the time muscle. The word “temporalis” comes from the Latin word “tempus” meaning “time”. The muscle covers the temporal bone, or time bone, which received its name because the hair of the head covering this bone is often the first hair to turn gray during the aging process. Therefore, this region is the first to show the effects of aging.’ (Wikipedia)
(So… who didn’t know that?)
What part of the body is the temple? When we are speaking of Spirit, The Temple is the part of our body that houses the Holy Spirit. That is in our hearts, or our conscience, or as Paul, an apostle, has written, “in the inner person.” It is not in our head but our heart. It is not a part of a time bone or a time muscle, but is timeless. It will never grow old; it is eternal.
“Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, so I am sending you.” Then he breathed on them and said, “Receive the Holy Spirit.” Jesus
