Bible Passage: Exodus 35:4-40:38
Main Point: God told His people to build a tabernacle
Key Passage: Leviticus 11:45
Big Picture Question: Who can keep God's law? No one can keep God's law except Jesus.
Bible Story Points:
- God told His people to build the tabernacle. A tabernacle is a place of meeting or worship. God gave very special instructions to Moses about how we build the tabernacle.
- God led His people in the wilderness by a cloud. Wherever God's cloud stopped, that's where they would set up God's tent. God sent Jesus to earth to meet with us forever!
- God gave Moses special instructions for how to build the tabernacle and everything inside. After the tabernacle was finished, God dwelt in thick cloud around the tabernacle. God showed His people when to travel through the cloud. Later, God sent Jesus to rescue us from our sin so we could live with Him forever.
*Christ Connection: God told the people of Israel to build a tabernacle. The tabernacle was like a big tent where God met with His people. As a part of His plan to save people from sin, God sent Jesus to earth to "tabernacle" or meet with us.
