- Last week we briefly mentioned the Tabernacle, which was a temple the Israelites built to carry around with them as they journeyed through the wilderness.
- Now we are going to learn more about the Tabernacle. Note that the Israelites were eager to build and offer sacrifices at it.
- As we read chapters 35–40, look for the things the Lord asked His people to place in the tabernacle, and ponder what these items could represent and what they suggest to you about increasing in holiness. Make a table in your journal.
|What object did you find?||What can this represent?|
|Ark of the covenant (Exodus 37:1–9; 40:20–21)||God’s presence; His covenants and commandments|
|Altar of incense (Exodus 40:26–27; see also Exodus 30:1, 6–8)||Prayers rising to the Lord|
|Candlestick or lampstand (Exodus 37:17–24)|
|Altar of sacrifice (Exodus 38:1–7; see also Exodus 27:1; 29:10–14)|
|Laver (basin) of water (Exodus 30:17–21)|
- Much of the book of Leviticus may seem strange to us—animal sacrifices, rituals involving blood and water, and laws governing minute details of life.
- But these rituals and laws were meant to teach principles that are familiar—repentance, holiness, and the Savior’s Atonement.
- They were all symbols. What rituals do we have today that are symbols?
Make a list of ordinances and their symbolism.
- The tabernacle was completed, and Joshua and his sons were ordained to its service.
- Once that happened, the Lord once again went over the commandments that the Israelites were supposed to obey.
- What verses in this chapter can help us be holy?
How can I be holy today?
