Exodus – Chapter 26: The Tabernacle

In Exodus 25 God gave the Israelites very specific instructions on how to build an ark, table, and lampstand.  A very boring chapter, but we did learn the unit of measurement in biblical times was the cubit, so reading Exodus 25 wasn’t a total loss, right?  🙂  I wish I could tell you that Exodus 26 is more interesting, but that would be a big lie!  However, let’s see if we can pull anything from it.

“Make curtains of goat hair for the tent over the tabernacle—eleven altogether.” – Exodus 26:7

Everyone needs curtains made of goat hair, right?  No?

“The curtain will separate the Holy Place from the Most Holy Place.” – Exodus 26:33

I learned something new.  There are places more holy than the Holy Place.  What is needed to turn a Holy Place into a Most Holy Place?

I will end there.  Unless you’re an architect interesting in building a biblical tabernacle.  If this is you, go ahead and read Exodus 26, but I’m not going to bore you any further.
