10B The Tabernacle: Theological, Symbolical, A Type of Heaven PIP PP

Revised Oct 2, 2014

An in depth look at the use of symbolism in OT worship and meaning of the altar, laver, menorah, table of incense, table of bread, veil, mercy seat, and their reappearance in the New Testament.  Does the symbolism here point to the essentials of not only Old Testament worship but also Christian worship?  Since the Tabernacle/Temple are a sketch/pattern of the worship going on in heaven, does that elevate it’s significance even more? Symbolism seems to be a difficult topic for Evangelicals.  How should we use or view it?
