Bible Study: Coming Out Of Bondage - Exodus - Chapter 27

Please forgive this rough draft format, as these are my raw study notes on the book of Exodus. I felt a great sense of urgency to publish them rather than waiting until I had the time to pretty them up. Thank you and I pray that God blesses you through this material.


Take a few minutes to savor Exodus Chapter 27. Then return here and ponder the thoughts, answer the questions, and be sure to leave comments about your own revelations…

27:1-8 – the altar of burnt offering – see John 1:29. See 38:1-7.

27:1 – acacia wood – resisted decay and bore heavy, sharp thorns. These qualities represented Christ. Scholars believe this choice of wood represented Christ’s humanity. See 38:1.

27:2 – horns – used to tie the sacrifice down. Do you recall another sacrifice that was trapped by its horns? See Genesis 22:13. See 38:2.

Jesus is the horn of our salvation (Psalm 18:2). He secured Himself to a cross to be our substitute sacrifice (Genesis 22:13). He anointed us with His Holy Spirit (1 Samuel 16:13). He leads us to victory (Joshua 6:13, 20).

27:21 – keep the lamps burning from evening to morning – symbolic of the pillar of fire?

What attributes of God have you observed in your study today? How will this change your relationship with Him?
