The Tabernacle



Insights from exploring

the

Tabernacle





We encourage you

to scan

down the page

and see

which videos interest you.




Our first video gives

a basic overview

of the tabernacle area and its components.





The only way to get into the tabernacle

was through the cloth "door."

The door represents Jesus.


When you go through the door, you come into the

outer court of the tabernacle.

-

In the outer court, you find

                                               the brazen altar.

That altar reminds us of the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross.


After you pass the brazen altar,

                                           you encounter the laver

where the priests

cleansed their hands and feet.

It reminds us that just believing that

Jesus died for our sins

is not enough.

We must invite Jesus to cleanse us of our sins.


That is the extent of the outer court.


Next is the Holy Place.

Only priests could go into the Holy Place.


After that, is the Holy of Holies.

Only the High Priest could go in there.

The last two sections are discussed in more detail

further down the page.


More insights

into

the

Tabernacle.




Below is

another video

sharing

about

the

Tabernacle.



Note:

The word "Torah"

is a Jewish term

that stands for the first five books of the Bible.




Below is a video

highlighting

Yom Kippur


The Sacrificial system reminds us

that sin

is a  serious thing.






The Holy Place

The Holy Place

contained

The Menorah

The Table of Shewbread

The Altar of Incense



The Menorah


The golden lampstand in the Holy Place

is also called

the Menorah.

~

The Menorah

reminds us that

Jesus is the Light of the world.

~

The Bible first speaks of the Menorah

in Exodus 25:31-40.


In our present day, Jews wanted to make a replica of the Menorah of the Bible to go in the future temple.

It is my understanding that the Jews were not exactly sure how the menorah was to look, so they were heavily influenced by the depiction of the temple menorah given in the Arch of Titus.

Here is a link to see a picture of the newly created golden menorah that will one day be in the rebuilt temple of God:

The Arch of Titus

is found

in Rome.


The arch commemorates

the destruction of Jerusalem

by the emperor Titus in 70 CE.


In the stone are pictures.

One picture shows the Jewish Menorah being taken.


This Menorah was the model

that the Jews used

just a few years ago

to make their present - day Menorah.

The Arch of  Titus






The Table of Shewbread



This table was in the Holy Place.


It held 12 loaves of bread.

Each loaf represented

one of the 12 tribes of Israel.


We read about this table in Exodus 25:23-30.


This bread reminds us

that Jesus said,

"I am the Bread of Life."



Golden Altar of Incense


Exodus 30:1-10

talks about this altar

which was located in the Holy Place.


The Scripture verses below,

help us see that

this piece of tabernacle furniture

is associated with

the prayers

of God's people.



Revelation 8:3-4

This verse explains

the

Golden Altar.

It

indicates that

the incense represents

the prayer of all those who love God.


In Psalm 141:2a,

David writes,

"Let my prayer

be set forth before thee as incense."


Exodus 30:8

This verse tells us

that Aaron was to

keep the incense

on the Golden Altar

as

perpetual / continual.


This reminds us

that our prayers

are to be continual.



1 Thessalonians 5:17 says,

"Pray without ceasing."



God enjoys us

continually

talking to him

throughout the day.



The Holy of Holies


The Ark of the Covenant

was in the Holy of Holies.


It held the Ten Commandments,
the rod of Aaron, and a jar of manna.


Above the ark was the mercy seat.
That was the location of the
manifested presence of God
found between
two golden angels.


God's own "Shekinah" glory

lit up the Holiest Place.



The Holy of Holies was a place that only the high priest could go into - and - he could only go in one day a year.

There was a heavy cloth

that kept the Holy of Holies private -

in the tabernacle

and later in the Jewish temple.


When Jesus died,

that heavy cloth was

miraculously

torn from TOP to bottom.


Most of the Jews didn't understand what that meant.

God tore the cloth to let us know that the blood of Jesus allows us - all - to go into the Holy of Holies if we love Jesus.


God showed us that

now all

who follow Jesus  -

can come into the presence of God.


Below is a song

celebrating our invitation

into

The Holy of Holies.




The Jewish Temple



After the tabernacle,

the Jewish people built a temple.

It was destroyed.

Later they built another temple.

It was destroyed.


The Jewish people are planning

to rebuild

the

Jewish temple.


If you would like to know

information

about

the plans for

the future temple of Israel,

we will soon

have a page about that.
