God’s Dwelling Place

This week in my chronological reading of the Bible, I am reading about the Children of Israel as they flee Egypt. As they learn more and more about God who delivered them, they learn His desires. One thing God wants is to be present in their lives. To help them know He is near, He guides them to build an elaborate tent for His dwelling. This tent, we know as the Tabernacle, had a specific design and contained specific items.

Looking at this tabernacle and the items in it, I notice similarities to God’s New Covenant people (Christians) and our relationship to Him.  The chart below shows some of the connections the Tabernacle has as a type or shadow of what was to come. The chart demonstrates the Christians age, the Church, as the antitype of the Tabernacle.
