The temple of Jerusalem consisted of the whole of the sacred
enclosure, embracing the entire aggregate of buildings, balconies,
porticos, courts (that is that of the men of Israel, that of the
women, and that of the priests), belonging to the temple; the latter
designates the sacred edifice properly so called, consisting of two
parts, the "sanctuary" or "Holy Place" (which no one except the
priests was allowed to enter), and the "Holy of Holies" or "the most
holy place" (which was entered only on the great day of atonement by
the high priest alone). Also there were the courts where Jesus or the
apostles taught or encountered adversaries, and the like, "in the
temple"; also the courts of the temple, of the Gentiles, out of which
Jesus drove the buyers and sellers and the money changers, court of
the women.
