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

In reply to your 2/03 post at  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 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.
