We have been learning about the tabernacle in our Tapestry of Grace studies.

And let them make me a sanctuary; that I may dwell among them. (Ex. 25:8)

We built a model tabernacle to reinforce our learning and I think this was our most fun project ever!

model tabernacle

Our model

The altar and the laver

And thou shalt make an altar … and thou shalt overlay it with brass. (Ex. 27:1-2)

 

Thou shalt also make a laver [of] brass, and his foot [also of] brass, to wash [withal]: and thou shalt put it between the tabernacle of the congregation and the altar, and thou shalt put water therein.(Ex 30:18)

The tabernacle with the badger skin covering

Under the badger skins were rams’ skins dyed red

 

And thou shalt make a covering for the tent [of] rams’ skins dyed red, and a covering above [of] badgers’ skins. (Ex 26:14)

These items are found inside the tent.

The golden lampstand

 

And thou shalt make a candlestick [of] pure gold: [of] beaten work shall the candlestick be made: his shaft, and his branches, his bowls, his knops, and his flowers, shall be of the same. And six branches shall come out of the sides of it; three branches of the candlestick out of the one side, and three branches of the candlestick out of the other side: (Ex. 25:31-32)

Table of Showbread

And thou shalt set upon the table shewbread before me alway. (Ex. 25:30)

The altar of incense

And thou shalt make an altar to burn incense upon:(Ex 30:1)

The Ark of the Covenant

And they shall make an ark…And thou shalt overlay it with pure gold, within and without shalt thou overlay it, and shalt make upon it a crown of gold round about. Ex 25:10-11

Inside the ark were the tablets with the 10 Commandments, Aaron’s rod, and a jar of manna.

Here are instructions for the building the model tabernacle.

  1. You guys are busy! What a great job!

  2. too cool! i love hands on projects. they seem to take us all day to do them because we keep adding to them, but it's all worth it!!!

  3. You are so crafty/artsy . I so love checking in to see all the great projects you are doing. Hope you guys have been doing well. I am so far behind on my blogging. I haven't been feeling very well lately. The doctor wants me to have a lot of lung test done to determine the breathing issues I am dealing with. We have gotten several days work caught up today.
