God's Instructions for the Tabernacle

May 13, 2018 • Pastor Phil Burggraff • God's Instructions for the Tabernacle -Exodus 25-31

Passage: Exodus 25–31 Theme: God’s Instructions for the Tabernacle Significance of Tabernacle within Exodus: • Bondage under Pharaoh to Dwelling with God • Chapters 25–40: Whom awill God’s people serve? • Purposes: o A vehicle for God’s presence o A place for sacrifices and offerings to be made (chapter 29) o A place where God would meet and speak to his chosen people (25:22; 29:42–43) Significance of Tabernacle within Biblical Theology: • God initiates creation and order • God dwells among his people • God moves with his people Significance of Tabernacle for us today: • John 1:14: Jesus was the tabernacle in flesh • Revelation 21:3, 22: God will dwell without mediation in the midst of his people. • 1 Corinthians 3:16–17; 6:19: We as believers are the dwelling place of God on earth Main Idea: God designs the place to take up residence among his holy people. Application Questions: 1. Reflect on the book of Exodus. Describe how God has chosen to reveal himself (make himself known) from the beginning of Exodus to the end. 2. How does the tabernacle provide access to God yet still keep God separate from his people? 3. Read John 1:9–18: In what ways was Jesus God’s tabernacle? What might Hebrews (especially 8–10) also indicate about Jesus’ present role for us? 4. According to 1 Corinthians 3:16–17 and 6:19, how are we God’s tabernacle today?
