This week we read all about the Temple.
It's funny, Mackenzie was studying the temple for her Biblical Studies class at the same time.
I love how God does that, don't you?
Teaching you the same stories, the same lessons, in different places of your life,
but all at the same time!
Jeff and the girls built a model of the temple.
It was an extra credit project for Biblical Studies class.
The details involved were overwhelming.
God was very specific in His instructions.
God was very intentional in who he asked to craft all of the different parts of the tabernacle.
He purposefully gifted certain people to carry out these plans.
Moses was very careful when he shared God's plan and made sure each detail was carried out perfectly.
God cares about every detail of our life, doesn't He?
The eastern gate of the Tabernacle.
The Alter of Burnt Offering stood in the center.
The Stands to prepare the sacrifice were to the right.
The laver (bowl) was used by the Priest to wish his hands and feet.
The interior structure was the Holy place, and the Holy of Holies.
There were four layers involved in the roof of the tabernacle.
The first layer was a seraph patterned cloth.
Then a white cloth, a red ram's skin, and the exterior was actually sea cow skin.
The NASB used the word porpoise to describe it.
