Review:
The Tabernacle was important to the Old Testament believer because it was the place where God had said He would meet with man, but the Tabernacle is also very important to the New Testament believer. It provides a picture, a foretelling (prophecy) of Christ, the Messiah, and it also provides us a glimpse of heaven, where one day we will all be worshiping God.

The Tabernacle was build in approximately 1440 BC, and it was the place where God would dwell with His people for 400 years. It was used as a place of worship from the time of the Exodus until the time of King Solomon, when the Temple was built.

Read Exodus 25:31-40

4. What wood was to be used for the boards of the tabernacle? What was to be the length of each? Width?

5. The boards were to set in sockets made of what material?

Exodus 26:31-37
The veil was a divider between the Holy Place and the Most Holy Place where the Ark of the Covenant was kept. It was a barrier between God and man. Only the High Priest would enter into the Most Holy Place. There was no separation in the middle. The High Priest had to go around the side.

6. What instructions are given in this section of scripture for the making of the veil? The hanging of the veil?

7. What things., according to this section of scripture were to be in the Most holy Place? Holy Place? How were they to be positioned?

Read Exodus 27
Brass or bronze is the metal which represents judgment (in contrast to gold or silver). The Bronze Altar in the Outer Court of the Tabernacle was the most used piece of furniture in the Tabernacle. It was on this altar that the sacrifices specified by God in the book of Leviticus were made. The Outer Court would have been a very bloody place with the blood of the sacrifices. This blood being spilled was to remind the children of Israel of the price of their sin. A life must be sacrificed to atone for sin.

8. Describe and/or draw a picture of the Bronze (Brass) Altar described in the text and its accessories.

Note: The approximate size of the Bronze Altar in modern measurements was 7.5′ long x 7.5′ wide x 4.5′ high. Exodus 27:6-7 describes how the altar was made “mobile.” After all, every time the children of Israel broke camp, the Tabernacle would have to be broken down and moved.

9. Write out Leviticus 17:11 here. What do you learn from this verse? How do you see this applying to your life, your walk with God today?

10. Write out Hebrews 9:22 here. What application do you see for this verse?

□ John 10:9

□ John 14:6

NOTE: The single entrance and path to journey through the Tabernacle sends that same message. There is only one way – Jesus.

14. What were the only two items of furniture found in the Outer Court of the Tabernacle? (Hint: Exod. 27:1; 30:18)

The Tabernacle was a moveable “tent of meeting” that God commanded Moses to build and for which God provided very detailed instructions as to the building, the furnishing, the use, the transportation and the location.

Facts about the Tabernacle:
□ There are 50 chapters in the Bible that discuss the Tabernacle
□ It would have fit in half of a football field
□ God dwelt with his people for 400 years in the Tabernacle (the Exodus to the time of King Solomon)
□ The Tabernacle was in the center of the Israelite camp

Read Exodus Chapter 25
1. What/who was the source of the items used to make the Tabernacle? See also Exodus 12:35-36.

2. With what heart did God ask them to give their offering?

3. What do these verses tell us about giving to the LORD?
□ 2 Corinthians 9:7

□ Luke 6:38

4. Copy Exodus 25:8 here. What is the purpose of the Tabernacle? What does this tell you about the heart of God?

5. How did they know how to build the Tabernacle?

6. According to Hebrews 8:1-5, it was important that Moses followed the instructions for the building of the Tabernacle exactly because it was a shadow of what?

7. What do you learn about the Ark of the Testimony from Exodus 25:10-22; Exodus 37:1-9? If you are able, draw a rough sketch of what it looked like on the back of this page.

8. What will go into the Ark according to verse 16 and 21?

9. Other things were later put into the Ark as well. What were they according to Hebrews 9:4?

10. Each of the items in the Ark were designed to remind the people of an event or action that God took on their behalf. For each of the following, give the event or action they were to remember:
□ Manna (See Exodus 16)

□ Aaron’s rod (See Numbers 17)

□ Tablets of the Law (Exodus 20)

Note: The Ark of the Covenant was to be made form Acacia wood. Acacia wood was durable and resistant to disease and insects, making it the most suitable material for constructing the ark. In addition, the Ark did not have any idols or likenesses of God. Review Exodus 20:4-5. The Israelites were to worship their God without idols or images in contrast to the pagans around them whose gods were often a combination of exaggerated animal and human features.

11. Describe and/or draw a picture of the Mercy seat based on what you read.

Note: The Mercy Seat represented the place where the High Priest would “atone for” or “cover over” the sins of the people. This was the place of the sacrificial payment for sin. Jesus, our High Priest eliminated the need for the sacrifices under the law by becoming the propitiation (atoning sacrifice) for our sins on Calvary. The Mercy Seat was where law (10 Commandments) and mercy (blood covering sin) meet.

12. Describe and/or draw the Table described in Exodus 25:23-30.

13. What goes on the table? What does this represent?

14. What do the following verses tell you about bread?
