Item Description...
The tabernacle, the center of worship in Israel for nearly five hundred years, serves as a divinely inspired object lesson for New Testament believers on the worship God approves and accepts. Every part of the sanctuary of old was intended to foreshadow in some way the glory of Christ. The tabernacle was God's place of dwelling among sinful people in the Old Testament, and in the New Testament, the picture became reality-Christ Himself came to dwell among sinful people. This book allows the modern reader to step into the world of the children of Israel, and see the tabernacle through the eyes of God's chosen people.

Publishers Description

"The title of this book takes me back to my boyhood days in Angola," writes the author in his foreword, "where as the son of missionary parents I knew what it was to trek and camp for weeks on end. . . . My father would lead family worship at dawn and then conduct a Bible study at dusk. . . . One particular series that I have never forgotten was on the Tabernacle in the wilderness. I can still visualize the scene as we sat, with African carriers, around the campfire outside our tent . . . the 'missionary's tent' served to represent the presence of God--as the Scriptures were unfolded and applied by the Holy Spirit we had] an experience of camping with God."

This book opens modern readers to the world of the children of Israel, helping them to view the Tabernacle as they did. They will see the "tent" in which God camped with His people, revealing His purpose, power, and glory. They will discover that every detail of the Tabernacle points to Christ and will be reminded of the words of Augustine: "The New is in the Old concealed. The Old is by the New revealed."Connects the Old Testament story to the New TestamentWell-established author with international ministry forumHighlights one of Scripture's most pervasive topicsThis printing revives a highly-referenced and much sought-after resource

Reviews - What do our customers think?
An important quick read for Christians  Mar 7, 2007
One of the problems found within the Christian circle today is that there is a detachment between Christianity today and Christianity as grounded in the First Century. This doesn't mean that the First Century church was "the" model for how churches could be and should be; simply because, if you look just at Acts, you would see that the church had as many highs as it had lows. And as the Jew/Gentile problem caused a greater widening between the people of Christ, the worse off the church became. The Gospel of reconciliation between God and man through Christ Jesus became, in a sense, if we take, say, the Letter to Romans as an example, a foundation for tug-of-war between the Jews and the Gentiles. Not that this wasn't an important problem that didn't need to be faced. In fact, it was something that both sides needed to realize and understand--again, as taking the Letter to Romans as an example of why Paul insisted on not only not giving up on the Jews, but also not ever giving up on the Gentiles. Hence the reason for the importance of books such as this, in today's world, in today's Christian society.

The Tabernacle is one of the most important and clearest pictures of not only God but God's everlasting Kingdom across time and space and matter. The Tabernacle shows, and very powerfully at that, just what (through imagery and foundation and ceremony) it takes to bind God and man together. In a sense, the Tabernacle was one of the most important pictures of what we, whether we are Gentile Christians today or Messianic Christians today, see as Jesus Christ. Just as you cannot have the New Testament without the Old, that is you cannot have the NT and then reject the OT, so too you cannot have Jesus Christ without using such metaphors and similes as found in the Tabernacle. Of course many Christians who willingly love the Bible and the Jewish people still have trouble in this day and age in reading the Torah, the foundation of the Bible--starting in Genesis and going all the way through the Gospels and from the Gospels to Revelation. We read about the colors, the size, the shape, the texture, and so many times we get lost. We need a guide. We need a helping hand when reading about this all-important Tabernacle as found in the OT. Thus this book.

Olford takes us step by step into the mystery and the beauty of the Tabernacle. The more we go into the Tabernacle, through Olford's help, the more we see and understand important Biblical truths such as God's might, God's rulership, God's creation, God's salvation, and God's judgment. Oldford explains colors, instruments, ways, reasons, and hows. So many of these would be lost if we were just trying, alone, to read the Old Testament's Torah. And yet...These are important principles that help us understand just how God has worked His way through human history from Creation to the Resurrection of Jesus Christ, to the one day return of Jesus Christ. This is a small book and a cheep book. An evening read sort of book that will help you through even the most laymen of studies of the Bible. Get this book. Read it. Enjoy it.
