Unit 6, Session 2
A Place for God's Presence
Summary and Goal
In this session, we will trace the construction of the tabernacle, God’s place of dwelling among His people. We will see that God provided the resources for the tabernacle and moved the hearts of His people to obey the instructions He had given them through Moses. Then we will see that when their work was done and completed according to God’s plan, God came to dwell with His people. However, we will also see that God had a better way to dwell with His people—a way that was realized in the person of Jesus Christ.
1. God provides the resources for the tabernacle by moving in the hearts of His people (Ex. 36:2-7).
2. God builds the tabernacle through the obedience of His people (Ex. 39:42-43).
3. God fills the tabernacle with His presence (Ex. 40:34-38).
Session in a Sentence
God desires to be with His people and made a way for sinful people to be with their holy God.
God instructed the Israelites to build a tabernacle so that He could dwell with them. God wants to be with His people. For this reason, God would later send His Son to “tabernacle,” or dwell, with us in order to bring us into His presence.
Because we are the people in whom God dwells, we manifest His glorious presence and bear the fruit that comes from the Holy Spirit so that through faith, Jesus may dwell with others as well.
