Exodus 25-30: The Tabernacle

(25, 29) What is the main purpose of the tabernacle according to 25:8 and 29:45-46?

How does the tabernacle point forward to Jesus (John 1:14) and the church (I Corinthians 3:16-17, Ephesians 2:19-22)?

How should we live as a church in light of this truth?

(25-27, 30) God instructs Moses to make numerous items to place in the tabernacle. What is the purpose of each? What symbolism, foreshadowing, or application might be found in each?

Ark and Mercy Seat (Hebrews 4:14-16) –

Veil (Matthew 27:51, Hebrews 10:19-25) –

Altar of Incense (Revelation 5:8, 8:3-4) –

Table (Matthew 6:11, John 6:35) –

Lampstand (John 1:4, 8:12) –

Bronze Basin (John 13:5-10, I John 1:9) –

Bronze Altar (Hebrews 10:11-14) –

(28-29) How does the ministry of the high priest point to Jesus – a better high priest (Hebrews 7:25, 9:24-26)?

(28-29) The priests were to be washed, clothed, and anointed (29:4-7) so that they might serve God (28:1, 3, 4).  We are called a royal priesthood (I Peter 2:9).  In what way have we been washed (I Corinthians 6:9-11), clothed (II Corinthians 5:21), and anointed (II Corinthians 1:21-22) to serve the Lord?
