Moriah Means High Holy Country Including Temple Mount Zion & Mount of Olives Eastward & Higher for Jesus’ Return


Some think that Mount Zion (named for the Canaanite fortress Sihyun later become the Israelites’ Jerusalem) is the same as Mount Moriah where Abraham had offered his son Isaac in sacrifice (when Elohim provided a sheep in Isaac’s stead), but Moriah means high holy country, a generic term for the area, thus that Solomon built the Temple on “Mount Moriah” does change the fact that the Mount of Olives is the portion of Moriah where the Abraham’s sacrifice occurred, and where Jesus the Messiah, the Lamb of Elohim, will return as the Lion of Judah to begin His millennial reign, to enter the eastern gate of the Temple, come from the Mount of Olives which is about 200 feet higher than Zion.
