The book of Exodus presents a sweeping narrative in which we read about the tabernacle as it serves as a copy and shadow of heavenly things, namely, our relationship with God in Christ. Yet, when we get to the end of the tabernacle narrative in chapter 40, we find a new beginning as Israel embarks on a new life of faith and obedience as they begin their journey into the Promised Land. This tabernacle and the relationship it represented was itself a new creation, a powerful testimony that the God of Scripture brings new life and beginnings for sinners.
