This chapter tells of the setting up of the Tabernacle and the annointing of the priests.
This chapter discusses the making of the cloths of service.
This chapter continues the construction. The construction of Altar of Burnt Offering, the Laver, and other materials of the Tabernacle are discussed.
This chapter is going to tell us about the construction of the Ark, the golden lampstand, and the altar of incense.
Bezalel and Oholiab were apparently in charge of the skilled craftsmen who performed the construction.
This chapter is mostly a repetition of the previous commands given. The previous commands started with the holiest of the objects, starting with the Ark of the Covenant, and working outward. But here the construction of the Tabernacle itself and then continues with the furnishings. It is very practical. First build the house, then you have a place to put the furnishings as you construct them.
Since the convenant has been re-instituted, the Tabernacle may now be built. The instructions were given in earlier chapters, but the construction had not yet taken place.
What is going to take place in this chapter is a reinstatement of the covenant broken by Israel. The shattered tablets, which once testified to the reality of the covenant between Elohim and Israel, were to be reproduced.
The words of Moses were given to him in the most direct manner possible. This makes the words of Moses weightier than those of any other prophet.
Yeshua Himself said that the Words of Moses are the most important and convincing of all (Luke 16:31). To deny Torah is to deny the most direct Words and Instructions of Elohim.
After just a few days of waiting, the people grew impatient. They gave Moses up for dead and decided that Elohim doesn’t care anymore. They wanted to make their own gods and go back to Egypt.
The two tablets of stone were written by the finger of Elohim. That gives the covenant with Israel His personal signature.
The whole tabernacle speaks of Messiah and the relationship we can have through Him when we submit ourselves to Him as our Master.
The application of the blood to the ear, hands, and feet speak of the priest hearing Torah (ear), works reflecting Torah (hand), and walks according to Torah (foot). His manner of life, was to be consecrated to Elohim. Even his clothing was sprinkled with the blood of sacrifice and consecration
