The Descent of the Eschatological Temple in the Form of the Spirit at Pentecost Part 1: The Clearest Evidence
In this article Beale argues that some Old Testament and early Jewish references to a heavenly temple in the latter-days have contributed to the depiction of the Holy Spirit appearing as fire and other associated features in Acts 2. He concludes that the baptism with the Spirit at Pentecost is a description of the end-times descent to earth of the heavenly temple to establish God’s church as a part of this temple.
