The triple Beis HaMikdash. (5767).

The third Temple won’t be the third but “of three” encompassing the virtues of the first and the second in addition to its own distinction.
The first Beis HaMikdash and the second Beis HaMikdash were both destroyed because of a specific weakness. The first was “top heavy”. It was dominated by G-dliness and did not incorporate enough worldliness. The second had an excess of worldliness and was therefore “bottom-heavy”. It was a proper seat for the presence of the Shechinah but there was not enough G-dly light. The third Beis HaMikdash is going to encompass the strengths of both and therefore should be called the Triple Beis HaMikdash rather than the third. This class is based on a sicha in Likutei Sichos volume 9 (Vaeschanan) and Rambam’s Hilchos Beis Habechira with the sichos of the Lubavitcher Rebbe (p. 97, 98, and p.5). Text for this class is also available at anash.com in a pdf viewer . You can print out the text if you wish.
