The remaining instructions for the tabernacle involve the priestly garments, the priests’ installation and a few other random bits. It all concludes with a Sabbath commandment.
We explore the Outer Court, then ask how the tabernacle functioned for Israel throughout their history. What happens to the tabernacle in the New Testament? And why does it still matter today?
