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?

Glory and Grace in the Cross of Jesus • July 5, 2020 • Pastor Phil Burggraff
Passage: John 12:20–50 Theme: Glory and Grace in the Cross of Jesus Notice what the “lifting up” of Jesus on the cross accomplishes: 1. The lifting up of Jesus bears fruit (23–26). 2. The lifting up of Jesus focuses on the Father’s glory (27–28). 3. The lifting up of Jesus brings all things under his judgment (29–33). 4. The lifting up of Jesus saves those who embrace him (34–36). 5. The lifting up of Jesus hardens unbelievers (37–43). 6. The lifting up of Jesus accomplishes perfectly the Father’s mission (44–50). Main Idea: Jesus accomplishments on the cross beckon us to believe and follow him.
