How did the Temple sanctify the gold and the Altar sanctify the offering in Matthew 23:17-19?

What does it mean to sanctify? Were the Temple and the Altar a foreshadowing of Christ?

Matthew 23:17 - 19

NASB - 17 You fools and blind men! Which is more important, the gold or the temple that sanctified the gold? 18 "And, 'Whoever swears by the altar, that is nothing, but whoever swears by the offering on it, he is obligated.'
