How many times have we (you know you have) skipped over the building of the tabernacle in Exodus. You need to read Steve Levy’s chapter “When God Moves In” in his book Bible Overview.
Levy writes that the tabernacle and temple are huge pictures to help them (and us) understand the gospel. The tabernacle represents heaven and earth and God’s relationship with humanity – it represents man’s fall, his sin and separation from God – it represents God’s redemption and looks forward to the restoration of humanity – the building of the tabernacle in exodus tells the gospel story.
Maybe we will read Exodus with new eyes.
