    Flavius Josephus states very precisely that Herod did destroy completely (including its foundations) the second Temple which had been built by Zurubbabel and Yeshua on their return from exile in Babylonia, and which later had been embellished by the Hasmoneans. Jewish Antiquities : 15 : 11 : ?So (after having demolished the whole Edifice) Herod removed all the old foundations, and laid others, and erected the Temple upon them.? This total destruction of the second Temple is furthermore corroborated by Aggadic (legendary) accounts in the Talmud, as for example, Talmud of Babylon: Order Neziqin: Tractate Baba Bathra: 3b ?How could Baba ben Buta counsel Herod to demolish the Temple for the purpose of building a new one ? Was this not against the Law ??... And : (Baba ben Buta and Herod?s discussion about the demolition and rebuilding of the Temple :) Baba ben Buta replied then to Herod : ?Send a Messenger to Rome for which it shall take a year until he shall reach there, and let him remain there a year, and his returning shall also take a year : and during these three years you can demolish this Temple and build a new one.? ? Therefore, Herod?s Temple was the third Temple of Jerusalem, and the next one will be the fourth Temple of Jerusalem.
