The Tabernacle: A Preview of Things to Come (Exodus 25:1-30:38)

Terry Coon, August 24, 2014
Part of the Exodus: The Promised Land series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

Exodus 25-30, Hebrews 9-10


1. OT: The TABERNACLE was the place to meet with God.
NT: Jesus comes down to TABERNACLE with men.

2. OT: Few have direct ACCESS TO GOD, but only on certain days.
NT: All may come to God THROUGH JESUS.

3. OT: SACRIFICES are required to worship God and APPEASE HIS WRATH.
NT: The sacrifice of Jesus provides COMPLETE FORGIVENESS and ATONEMENT for sin.

4. OT: The Tabernacle was at the CENTER OF LIFE for the Jews.
NT: Jesus is the both MEANS and the END of our worship.


By understanding and embracing how the tabernacle and sacrificial system finds fulfillment in Christ, we have...

ASSURANCE of forgiveness. (vv. 11-18)

CONFIDENCE to approach God. (vv.19-23

HOPE in God's promises. (vv. 22-23)

A COMMUNITY to encourage and remind us of who and what we have. (vv. 24-25)

No REASON to not look elsewhere. (vv. 26-27)
