What are the differences and similarities between a synagogue and a temple?
The temple was a fancy building in Jerusalem where Jews worshiped. On special occasions, like the feast of Passover, Jews would travel to the temple (Luke 2:41). Only the priests were allowed to enter the temple (2 Chronicles 26:18). Here the priests would offer sacrifices for the sins of the people (2 Chronicles 7:12). The temple in Jerusalem was the center of worship for the Jews (John 4:20).
