Types of the Tabernacle - Chapter 1 - An Introduction - Thomas Newberry

      INTRODUCTION.      (Exodus, Chapter 25. 1-9).      It is not here Israel seeking to provide a dwelling-place for God, as in David's case (Ps. 132. 1-5), but God desiring a dwelling-place for Himself amongst them. Man naturally desires not the presence of God with him here on earth, but God in the riches of His grace seeks to dwell with men. We must remember when this request from God was made...

THE HANGINGS      Exodus 27. 9.      Verse 9.

 THE BARS      "And thou shalt make bars of shittim wood; five for the boards of the one side of the Tabernacle, and five bars for the boards of the other side of the Tabernacle, and five bars for the boards of the side of the Tabernacle for the two sides westward.

Types of the Tabernacle - Chapter 7 - The Boards

THE BOARDS      "And thou shalt make boards for the tabernacle of shittim wood standing up" (v. 15).      REGARDING the Tabernacle as typical of Christ, these boards of shittim wood overlaid with gold, the framework of the Tabernacle, represent Him in the combination of the human and divine natures in His blessed Person, the foundation truth of Christianity, "God manifest in flesh."
