Looks like we could use another topic to discuss in the Fundamental section Of course for our brethren that only want to hold to the interpetation aspect of, or willing to allow application to, the verses regarding the Tabernacle, this discussion will prove beneficial for all, regardless of your preference. I am opening this discussion for all aspects regarding interpetation, implication, and application of both. May we a indulge and be blessed by the interpetation and the multitudes of application. The Tabernacle offers many pictures and types of Christ, the Jew, the Gentile, believers and non-believers alike. The "chosen nation" of Israel/ seed of Abraham. The stranger without and within. The Outer and inner courts, the altar, the "instruments" of holy order in making the offering, if you may, the table of shewbread, the "vail", the holy place, and most of all, The Holy of Holies/Holiest place of them all. Not failing to include the Ark of God and the Mercy Seat. This is a much needed discussion for education of Christians and non-Christians alike. Remember "My people perish for lack of knowledge". I am not an authority on the subject, and though many will offer much insight, the Tabernacle is full of tremendous analogies and no one is so well learned that nothing is offered that wouldn't be to his benefit. By all means, IMPUT. Nothing to input, read and learn. Just to start things off, How is it one could advance past the "badger's skin" and enter therein? Why do some prefer to remain outside, and what might be the benefits of entering?
