The Five Foundations: Tabernacle Lesson Six

The frame work and foundation of the Tabernacle are the focus of this lesson. Sounds boring, however you may be amazed at the faith building, spiritual insight you will receive. This is one of Pastors favorite teachings as it allows people to understand the strength of our Christian foundation.

The tabernacle was a portable place of worship God commanded the Israelites to build after he rescued them from slavery in Egypt. It was used from a year after they crossed the Red Sea until King Solomon built the first temple in Jerusalem, a period of 400 years. Tabernacle means “place of meeting” or “tent of meeting,” since it was the place where God dwelt among his people on earth. While on Mount Sinai, Moses received minutely detailed instructions from God on how the tabernacle and all its elements were to be constructed. The people gladly donated the various materials from spoils they had received from the Egyptians.
