Bible prophecy: First red heifer born in 2,000 years, signals end of days
In both Christianity and Judaism, red heifers feature in tales about the "end of times".
In the announcement, the Institute said the red female calf "brings the promise of reinstating Biblical purity to the world".
The birth and sacrifice of the red cow is said to precede the construction of the Third Temple in Jerusalem.
In mainstream Orthodox Judaism, the rebuilding of the Temple will happen before the coming of the Jewish Messiah. The two previous temples have been destroyed.
However, The Temple Institute and other organisations have been established with the goal of building the Third Temple on Mount Moriah or the Temple Mount.
But some theologians believe the construction of the Third Temple is linked to 'Judgement Day' or the 'end of times'.
