  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
 
  Temple 
  first  used  of  the  tabernacle,  which  is  called  "the  temple  of  the 
  Lord"  (1  Sam.  1:9).  In  the  New  Testament  the  word  is  used 
  figuratively  of  Christ's  human  body  (John  2:19,  21).  Believers 
  are  called  "the  temple  of  God"  (1  Cor.  3:16,  17).  The  Church  is 
  designated  "an  holy  temple  in  the  Lord"  (Eph.  2:21).  Heaven  is 
  also  called  a  temple  (Rev.  7:5).  We  read  also  of  the  heathen 
  "temple  of  the  great  goddess  Diana"  (Acts  19:27). 
 
  This  word  is  generally  used  in  Scripture  of  the  sacred  house 
  erected  on  the  summit  of  Mount  Moriah  for  the  worship  of  God.  It 
  is  called  "the  temple"  (1  Kings  6:17);  "the  temple  [R.V., 
  'house']  of  the  Lord"  (2  Kings  11:10);  "thy  holy  temple"  (Ps. 
  79:1);  "the  house  of  the  Lord"  (2  Chr.  23:5,  12);  "the  house  of 
  the  God  of  Jacob"  (Isa.  2:3);  "the  house  of  my  glory"  (60:7);  an 
  "house  of  prayer"  (56:7;  Matt.  21:13);  "an  house  of  sacrifice" 
  (2  Chr.  7:12);  "the  house  of  their  sanctuary"  (2  Chr.  36:17); 
  "the  mountain  of  the  Lord's  house"  (Isa.  2:2);  "our  holy  and  our 
  beautiful  house"  (64:11);  "the  holy  mount"  (27:13);  "the  palace 
  for  the  Lord  God"  (1  Chr.  29:1);  "the  tabernacle  of  witness"  (2 
  Chr.  24:6);  Zion"  (Ps.  74:2;  84:7).  Christ  calls  it  "my 
  Father's  house"  (John  2:16).
