"REPLY TO PAUL WILSON -- New Jerusalem's Walls 144 cubits High or Thick?"


In reply to your 2/03 post at http://www.fivedoves.com/letters/feb2012/paulw23-1.htm  you ask a very interesting question as to whether the 144 cubits refer to the height or thickness of New Jerusalem's walls.  I never thought about it being the thickness of the walls until you brought up the subject.  I don't know what the real answer to your question is but the link at this website would agree with the 144 cubits referring to the thickness of the walls at http://www.heraldmag.org/2006/06ja_9.htm They also state that not only are there 4 walls around New Jerusalem but a wall on top of it and at the bottom of it because it is shaped like a cube with 12 edges.
