Bible Study: Coming Out of Bondage - Exodus - Chapter 39

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 39. Then return here and ponder the thoughts, answer the questions, and be sure to leave comments about your own revelations…

39:1-31 – Which piece of priestly clothing inspires you? Can you picture people dressed this way in the time of Jesus?

39:32-33 – During the inspection of the tabernacle, “How Moses’ heart must have pounded! He knew above all others that if he missed the tiniest deviation from God’s command and allowed a defective piece to be carried into the sanctuary, it could mean death for all of them.” (A Woman’s Heart: God’s Dwelling Place – Beth Moore)

39:33 – Moses inspects the tent, furnishings, clasps, frames crossbars, posts and bases.

39:34 – Moses inspects the ram skins, sea cow hides and shielding curtain.

39:35 – Moses inspects the ark of the Testimony, its poles and atonement cover.

39:36 – Moses inspects the table, its articles, the bread of the Presence.

39:37 – Moses inspects the gold lampstand, its accessories, and the oil for its light.

39:38 – Moses inspects the gold altar, the anointing oil, the fragrant incense, and the curtain for the entrance to the tent.

39:39 – Moses inspects the bronze altar, its grating, poles and utensils, the basin and its stand.

39:40 – Moses inspects the curtains of the courtyard, poles and bases, the curtain for the courtyard entrance, ropes and tent pegs, the furnishings for the tabernacle.

39:41 – Moses inspects the woven garments for ministering, the sacred garments for the priests.

39:43 – Moses blessed them – barak – to bend the knee. Moses saluted the people by dropping to his knees.

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