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.
The veil was the only entrance, or door into the Holy Place. This was the place of worship where the golden lampstand, the table of showbread, and altar of incense were.
This door is a picture of Yeshua. Yeshua tells us that He is the Doorway to His Father (John 10:7-9).
The philosophical question has always been asked, “How could a holy and loving Elohim who created such a perfect world allow evil and corruption to appear at all?” The only real answer to this question is that it was all in His plan.
