20 x 12 feet, huh? Interesting. Very detailed. I wonder why he did Herod’s temple and not Solomon’s . . . .

I think we only have a hazy idea what Solomon's temple looked like. Some historians argue that it was more like a family chapel than a temple as we understand it. Herod's Temple was much larger and was a major pilgrimage site as well as tourist attraction and was well known in the ancient world.
