Why do you think the Lord’s instructions for the tabernacle are so specific?
List the different parts of the tabernacle and how they might appear in the New Testament.
If you are called to inspect someone else’s work for the Lord, how might you handle that responsibility?
In what way do you bless others in their ministries?
How does the Lord instruct you in what to do for Him?
Create a simple drawing of how God wanted the tabernacle laid out.

What are the steps to prepare Aaron and his sons to serve in the priesthood?
How does the Lord prepare us to serve as priests today?
What is the significance of the date when the tabernacle is first set up?
What might be the significance of how Moses erects the tabernacle?
What does the set up of the tabernacle teach you about teamwork?
3
Where do you find God’s glory?
How might you apply the picture of Israel remaining where they were until the cloud lifted from the tabernacle to your own decision-making processes?
What changes do you need to make to draw closer to God?

 
You'll notice a large chunk of the text has not been analyzed with homiletics.  The homiletics from the Pentateuch this year generally corresponds with the BSF assignment I am studying.  I plan to do and publish my homiletics even when there is no BSF assignment to do so, but otherwise, I usually stick to the verses they assign.  I believe chapters 35 through the beginning of 39 were omitted because they are details about the tabernacle furnishings.  Maybe during Christmas break I'll study those verses.
