I’ve often said when I get to heaven, I hope there’s a huge library of actual video coverage of all the events we read about but can only see in our imaginations. A heavenly “news room” if you will, with live footage.
The book of Exodus would have a lot of segments! Crossing the Red Sea…the burning bush where God spoke to Moses…the miraculous water from the rock. This would be especially interesting for the Old Testament Tabernacle that God had the children of Israel build, so that His presence could dwell in their midst.
We sometimes forget that this was a real place when we’re reading all those details. We get distracted and lost in the minutiae. And what exactly is a cubit?!
So, to that end, I’m sharing a short (6-minute) video I found of one artist’s idea of what the Tabernacle actually looked like. It’s helpful to read Exodus 25-27 first. Enjoy!

This was wonderful! When I was just 12 I did a short report on the “Laver” in my Sunday School class. We were studying the tabernacle and each of us girls picked a piece to report on. I’m now 70 years old and still have deep warm impressions whenever the tabernacle is presented. I love how every part represents our salvation in Christ and our freedom to enter behind the veil!

Isn’t it amazing how what we were taught when we were young stays with us! So important to teach kids early with truth! What a great project your Sunday School teacher led you to do!! Thank you for sharing!
