    Reading through the descriptions of the Tabernacle furnishings the other day, I was wondering if some of you could shed the light on some of the symbolism/significance of them.

    I am aware of the significance/symbolism of the veil, holy of holies, and ark itself, but I am having a harder time seeing the significance and symbolism of some of the other furnishings as they relate to God, salvation, Jesus, etc.

    I probably need to research deeper... thought you guys could help out!

    God bless!

    uhdum---DeHaan sheds a lot of light---like Trotter says

    Also the book, "Camping with God" by Stephen Olford---Olford IMHO is a walking, talking, thinking preaching theological "Einstein"

    www.olford.com

    You can buy the book online or at any bible book store

    This one thing I will add to the thinking of the Tabernacle---

    from all outward appearances--it wasn't a spactacular thing of beauty--covered in Goat skins--Isaiah said, "He hath no form nor comeliness that we should be attracted to Him!"

    But ooooooooooohhhhhhh, the inward appearance!! John said, "And we beheld His glory, glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth."

    Uh, Blackbird...I was just at Lifeway and looked for "The Tabernacle: Camping with God" by Olford. They didn't have it, nor could they order it. And it's not listed on Olford's website. So...just how old IS this book??!!! [​IMG]

    Actually, Amazon has it, so I may order it from there! I am very interested in the tabernacle, and love learning more about it!

    Will also look at DeHaan's book.

    Thanks, guys!

    CJ---I just paged through Olford's site---the book ain't there---just like you said it wasn't! But there is another book there probably just as good to glean truths of the Tabernacle---try the book on "Guiding His People Through the Promised Land"---

    I have to buy those book one at the time---expensive----unless you ladies on the board would like to contribute to Blackbird's Library fund---Hint, hint!!

    Why just the hint for "ladies" to contribute to Blackbird's Library fund...huh? Can't the "guys" contribute?? :confused:

    I've already ordered Olford's book from Amazon...15 bucks! Combined it with DeHaan's book and got free shipping!! [​IMG]

    CJ--thats because I know you ladies would do something special for Preacher Blackbird!!

    Heard the story a long time ago about a preacher who walked into a deacon's meeting and handed them his car payment book and said, "Here! Ya'll take turns paying for this!"---worth a try for Blackbird to try, ain't it???? [​IMG]

    After all---in spite of the Passion threads---Brother David is still and always will be a :cool: [​IMG] !!!

    Your Southern Baptist preachin' buddy,
    Blackbird

    In the tabernacle furnishings I am drawn to the Goat hair sin curtain.

    It was made up of 2 sets of curtatains linked together 1 being a set of 5 (5 meaning grace) the other set 6(6being the #no. of man)

    They are linked by 50 brass rings (50 being the #no. of liberty,jubilee,pentecost as the celebration not the denom) brass representing judgement.

    There is judgement(brass) against man(6) but by the grace of GOD(5) man (6) is reconcilled to God and given liberty/jubilee meaning all debts,judgements are frogiven him by the grace of God. This all shown by the fact that goats stand for sin offering.
    Jesus being the scapegoat the one that takes away judgement and gives us freedom and links man with GODS' grace.

    I really do love the study of the Tabernacle it is an excellent OT illustrator of Christ.
