Lecture 2, A Tabernacle in the Wilderness:
The tabernacle of the Old Testament, Rev. Hyde observes, is like a “crayon drawing” our children make for us. The people and the house in the picture point us to realities without being an exact representation of them. Yet, the tabernacle is a drawing that the Father gives his “son,” Israel, rather than the other way around. This lesson considers how God provided the tabernacle to teach about true and heavenly things concerning Him and how He relates to His people. We will look at what the tabernacle teaches in terms of God’s holiness, helpfulness, and heavenliness.
