"The temple--when will it be finished?"

Hello, John and Doves,
I believe that The Temple is His Body [Ephesians 4:16].
As such, we wonder if HaShem needs a temple built with hands.

Let us meditate on Mark 14:58.
"Three days" reminds me of Peter's comment.
It is written,
    But you must not forget this one thing, dear friends: A day is like a thousand years to the Lord, and a thousand years is like a day.
2 Peter 3:8 NLT
[From biblehub.com]

Now, what links these three scriptures?

It is written,
The Resurrection Body

35 But someone may ask, “How will the dead be raised? What kind of bodies will they have?”
36 What a foolish question! When you put a seed into the ground, it doesn’t grow into a plant unless it dies first.
37 And what you put in the ground is not the plant that will grow, but only a bare seed of wheat or whatever you are planting.
38 Then God gives it the new body he wants it to have. A different plant grows from each kind of seed.
1 Corinthians 15:35-38 NLT
[From biblehub.com]

Thus, we see that one man, Jesus Christ, died for all.
In this way, all who are in Him will live.
[1 Corinthians 15:45-58,
Matthew 13:31-32 ("smallest of seeds"), Isaiah 53 ("despised and rejected", v.3; "he will have many descendants", v.10)]
Amen and amen!

So then, when are we going home?
Answer: "at the last salpynx."
The two salpynxes [<Koine Greek] were silver trumpets, used to summon to assembly and to break camp.
[Numbers 10:2, 1 Corinthians 15:52]
