1.There is a disagreement whether an expansion of the Azarah or Yerushalayim requires all of the preconditions of the Mishnah or only one of them.
2. There is a disagreement whether the sanctification of the Azarah and Yerushalayim by King David and King Shlomo was everlasting.
3. Rebbi Eliezer says that while the Beis ha'Mikdash was being built in the time of Ezra, curtains were suspended where the Heichal would be and where the Azarah would be.
4. According to the opinion that the sanctification of the Azarah and Yerushalayim is everlasting, it is permitted to bring a Korban even when the Beis ha'Mikdash is no longer standing.
5. According to the opinion that the sanctification of the Azarah and Yerushalayim is everlasting, the sanctification of walled cities of Eretz Yisrael is also everlasting.
6. A person became Tamei in the Azarah and subsequently forgot. If he bowed down, or lingered in the Azarah, he is Chayav a Korban Oleh v'Yored.
7. If someone becomes Tamei in the Azarah and then he bows down towards the Kodesh ha'Kodashim, he is Chayav. This is true even though he only bent himself slightly and did not bow down fully.
8. The terms Mikdash and Mishkan in the Torah are interchangeable.
9. The definition of "Kidah" is to bow one's face. "Keri'ah" means to kneel on one's knees.

1. Rav Huna requires all of the preconditions. Rav Nachman requires only one of the preconditions.
2. According to Rav Huna the sanctification of the Azarah and Yerushalayim is everlasting. Therefore, even though all of the preconditions for sanctification are in place at the time of Ezra there was neither a king nor the Urim v'Tunim. The sanctification that was done was merely symbolic; the lack of some of the preconditions was not a concern. According to Rav Nachman the sanctification by King David and Shlomo was not nullified upon the destruction of the Mikdash and the subsequent exile of Klal Yisrael. Since Rav Nachman requires only one of the preconditions, they sanctified the Azarah and Yerushalayim at the time of Ezra even without a king and the Urim v'Tumim.
3. The Heichal was built outside the curtains so that people would not gaze into the Hecihal. The Azarah was built inside the curtains.
4. It is permitted to eat Kodshei Kodshim even without curtains for the Azarah. It is permitted to eat Kodshim Kalim even though the walls around Yerushalayim are no longer standing.
5. Consequently, all of the relevant Mitzvos of a walled city apply to the cities that according to tradition were walled from the time of Yehoshua Bin Nun.
6. If he left the Azarah immediately but took the long way out he is also Chayav. If he took the short way out and did not linger in the Azarah long enough to bow down he is exempt from a bringing a Korban.
7. If he bowed down away in the opposite direction of the Kodesh ha'Kodashim he is Chayav only if he lingered the amount of time it takes to bow down with the full extension of the hands and feet.
8. The Mishkan is sometimes called Mikdash in the Torah and the Mikdash is sometimes called Mishkan in the Torah.
9. "Hishtachave'ah" means to bow down to the ground with full extension of the hands and feet.
