Re: orion Into the Temple Courts

If we are going to continue this topic, let me put in my two cents.

Actually, the room is about 1/2 or maybe a 1/3 of the size of the so-called
synagogue at Herodian (sometimes attributed to C1, but more likely c2).
The Herodian synagogue also has only one bench, although it is slightly
higher, I think, that the room at Qumran.

The real problem is the claim that these are synagogues.  Not even the
Masada room can be demonstrated to be Jewish, let alone to be a synagogue.
