The study of the Tabernacle is a fascinating study. It is filled with many symbols and types of the person and work of the Lord Jesus Christ. My personal favorite type is the symbolism of the Mercy Seat. The Mercy Seat covered the Ark of the Covenant. The Ark contained, among other things, the law of God. Mankind has broken the law of God. Only by the Mercy Seat, sprinkled with the blood of the sacrifice, could man obtain atonement for his sins. Without the blood-sprinkled Mercy Seat, man would face the wrath and judgment of God. 1 Samuel 6:19 And he smote the men of Baksheesh, because they had looked into the ark of the LORD, even he smote of the people fifty thousand and threescore and ten men: and the people lamented, because the LORD had smitten many of the people with a great slaughter. When these men removed the Mercy Seat to look inside the ark, they came face to face with the broken law of God without the blood covering and came face-to-face with the justice of God. Without the blood, men are doomed. The symbolism of the blood of Christ is quite obvious. I am curious if others have a favorite type or symbol presented in the Tabernacle.
