Summary/Abstract: The belief that God dwells in the Temple was the fundamental assertion of the Zion Theology in pre-exilic Jerusalem. Such a conception, often stated in psalms and exemplary reflected in Ps 46 and Isaiah 6, enjoyed not only positive but also critical reaction in the writings of the Old Testament. After an incursion into Early Christian literature about Jerusalem, this paper analyses how the conception about God’s dwelling in Jerusalem is reflected in Samuel (1 Sam 4-6; 2 Sam 6; 2 Sam 7) and Kings (1 Kgs 8).
