Bible Time Period: Egypt and Exodus
You freed your people from slavery in Egypt so they could worship you: Free me from sin so I can serve and worship.
God gave Moses a heavenly pattern to copy in building the Tabernacle: a movable “tent” they would take with them on their journeys and that would house his presence. This is significant: God—the same God we saw create with a word in Genesis 1-2, the great “I AM” of Exodus—plans to live with them!
There are many details in these chapters. You may read quickly through them, noting the highlights (the things they were asked to build and their purpose).
The focal point in the Tabernacle is the Ark of the Covenant, the earthly throne of God and the place of his presence. What do you learn about it here? What, if any, symbolic meaning can you find in the details?
