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!
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.
