2012 “The Temple on Mount Zion” Conference

The Interpreter Foundation sponsored its first conference today, “The Temple on Mount Zion,” in memory of Matthew B. Brown. There were an excellent array of presentations given by several scholars on the central theme of the temple. We express our sincere thanks and gratitude to all those who were involved in the conference today.

The conference was live streamed online with viewers as far away as Norway, Finland, United Kingdom, and Ecuador. The recorded videos of the presentations are now available on Interpreter’s YouTube Channel. We will feature one or two of these videos every week for the next few months.
