A visit to the Tabernacle

This year we are studying Ancient History using Mystery of History volume 1. We are enjoying it. I think history is one of the kids favorite things. I decided that a visit to the reproduction Tabernacle would be a fun outing. I remember going there for a field trip when I was in school.

Outside they have the outer court. It is interesting as it is built to size. You realize how small it was in some ways.

In the tabernacle part they do not allow pictures. It is was interesting to see the four different coverings that went over the tabernacle. The sides were wood and in the gift shop we were able to see some acacia wood which was very light. That would make it possible to be easy to carry. The inner court was not that big. The furniture was there made just as it was instructed to Moses in Exodus 25.

A visit to the Tabernacle helps in so many ways to bring that part of Scripture to live. God wanted to dwell in the middle of his people. He still desires that today. What an awesome God we have!

"And let them make me a sanctuary, that I may dwell in their midst."

Exodus 25:8
