Exodus, Dwelling 3, Amy Katterson, April 26, 2022

This week we continued to study the very detailed instructions that God entrusts to Moses while up on the mountain and then the execution of those plans. We examined four aspects of how God covers, consecrates, and commissions His people:

  • The Priests’ Garments: Special covering to come before a holy God 
  • The Priests’ Consecration: Setting sinners apart for God’s service 
  • Atonement Money and Extravagant Supply: Each one shall give 
  • Workers and Rest: Spirit-enabled labor and covenant-keeping rest 

Reviewing these aspects, we traced the threads of these themes through Scripture, like the precious threads of gold, blue, purple, and scarlet woven through the priests’ holy garments: 

  1. Purpose for the people of Israel
  2. Pointers toward Christ
  3. Present for us now
  4. Promise for future fulfillment 

May these precious future promises buoy your faith and enliven your joy this week

The tabernacle illustrates God’s desire to be with his people. In it, we see that God’s original creation design—for his image bearers to live with him in a perfect world where they rule under his authority—has not changed. It’s the people who have changed. We now are all faulty image bearers who can no longer be in God’s presence, or rule the world with his character.  But God will recover what was lost in the garden, and the tabernacle previews how he’ll do it.

In the frame for the tabernacle, we saw Eden woven into the text like the cherubim were woven into the curtains. Several textual clues signal that the building of the Tabernacle is a second creation account, or an “Eden Remix” according to GK Beale.

In the foundation for the temple, we noted the generosity of God mirrored in the generous contributions of his people. And in the furniture, we began to see the provisions God made so that he can once again dwell with his people, deformed as they are by sin. 

The tabernacle is not Eden. So long as the cherubim guard the way back to God, no one can stand in his presence. But the tabernacle does hint at how Eden might be restored. If only we had a better high priest than Aaron; if only we had a better sacrifice than the blood of bulls and goats, maybe we too could slip through the veil and be with God.
