Rev. Ned Moerbe, pastor of Trinity Lutheran Church in Blackwell, Oklahoma, joins host Rev. AJ Espinosa to study Exodus 39.
“Moses saw all the work, and behold, they had done it; as the LORD had commanded, so had they done it. Then Moses blessed them.” It was heaven on earth—like the paradise of Genesis, a place where God was intimately present among His people. Exodus 39 describes the Tabernacle as a new creation that anticipates the resurrection. The 12 tribes are engraved on precious stones that by God’s “remembrance” will endure into the heavenly Jerusalem. If Christ remembers us, we are not lost. The high priest’s garments present him as the image of God, our name through baptism and adoption.
