Sunday Morning Sermon Series: “The Word of Incarnation” part 2
“The Word of the Tabernacle”
There are some circles of Christian study groups, sermons, books, and teachings which go into great details of the Tabernacle and its furnishings. Such are very helpful in pointing to multiple aspects of the person and work of Christ. However, when we take our focus off the details and refocus on the Tabernacle from afar, we can see much more of its significance. When we consider the broader contexts of the Biblical narrative we can see how God’s redemptive plan not only employs the Tabernacle but sees the Tabernacle as the end game reality (Rev. 21:22). What is profound and too often missed is a failure to see ourselves as the partial fulfillment of the Tabernacle and ancient eschatological promises. It is right to see Jesus as the fulfillment of all the Word, but it is wrong to exclude those for whom the Word came to tabernacle (dwell) and employ in this messianic age of expanding the promised Kingdom.
