For millions of believers, Jerusalem is one of the world's holiest cities. Pilgrims from three major religions -- Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, each of which is heir to Old Testament theological tradition -- flock to Jerusalem because many of their most sacred memories are centered there. This study of ancient Israel's sacred literature on the topic of Jerusalem is therefore not a speculative exercise. It is a subject of immediate relevance to both the religious and political realities of present-day Jerusalem.

The Scriptures inspired by ancient Israel's priests, prophets, and sages provide the foundation for the status of Jerusalem in today's three monotheistic religions. In The Holy City, Father Hoppe explores how the various theological traditions in the Hebrew Bible, apochrypha, and selected pseudepigrapha present Jerusalem. In closing he discusses how early Judaism dealt with the fall of Jerusalem and the destruction of the Temple in A.D. 70.
