Judeo/Christian Quote #1- Cornerstone

The rite of laying a Cornerstone is an important cultural component of eastern architecture and metaphorically in sacred architecture generally. The origins of this tradition are vague but its presence in Judeo-Christian countries can be associated with one quotation from the Old Testament (Psalm 118:22) cited six times in the New Testament (Matthew 21:42,Mark 12:10, Luke 20:17, Acts 4:11, Ephesians 2:20 and 1 Peter 2:7) and Isaiah 28:16 quoted by the writer of the Book of 1st Peter (1 Peter).
