Pseudo-Barnabas, A.D. 80 - 130

Let us inquire, then, if there still is a temple of God. There is—where he himself declared he would make and finish it. For it is written, "And it shall come to pass, when the week is completed, the temple of God shall be built in glory in the name of the Lord" [Dan. 9:24-27 with Haggai 2:10]. I find, therefore, that a temple does exist.

   Learn, then, how it shall be built in the name of the Lord. Before we believed in God, the habitation of our heart was corrupt and weak, as being indeed like a temple made with hands. For it was full of idolatry and was a habitation of demons through our doing such things as were opposed to God.

   But it shall be built—watch—in the name of the Lord, in order that the temple of the Lord may be built in glory. How? Learn. Having received the forgiveness of sins and placed our trust in the name of the Lord, we have become new creatures, formed again from the beginning. Therefore in our habitation God truly dwells in us. How? His word of faith; his calling of promise; the wisdom of the statutes; the commands of the doctrine; he himself prophesying in us; he himself dwelling in us; opening to us who were enslaved by death the doors of the temple, that is, the mouth; and by giving us repentance introduced us into the incorruptible temple. … This is the spiritual temple built for the Lord. (Letter of Barnabas 16)
