The Tabernacle

Table of Showbread

Table of Showbread

In my Bible reading, I am currently reading about how the tabernacle was to be built. Being a visual person, I was really curious to see what this actually looked like. I remember seeing visual representations in school, but it has been awhile so I went to do a Google image search and found out that there is actually a tabernacle model located in Timna Park in Israel.

Not only was I curious about what the tabernacle itself looked like, but the garments the high priest wore. Even though I have read this passage several times, I don’t think I ever really paid attention to how detailed the priests outfits were.

I think it is interesting how everyone was involved, whether it was just giving your silver, gold, cloth, etc. to actually making the cherubim or the breastplate for the priest.

Thankfully, today God dwells in us via the Holy Spirit, and there is no longer a need for the Tabernacle where God dwelt in the Holy of Holies. As a result of Christ’s sacrificial death on the cross, we now all have access to Him!
