Bible Study: Coming Out of Bondage - Exodus - Chapter 28

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. Stacey Take a few minutes to savor Exodus Chapter 28. Then return here and ponder the thoughts, answer the questions, and be sure to leave comments about your own revelations… 28:4 – robe – a priestly garment. Turban – the royal diadem. Aaron is a shadow of the king-priest in the order of Melchizedek. See Genesis 14:18-20, Hebrews 7:1-3. What attributes of God have you observed in your study today? How will this change your relationship with Him?

Stacey Take a few minutes to savor Exodus Chapter 27.

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 Spiri

This outer covering wasn’t attractive. “But only those who dared to enter could behold the beauty hidden within. How like our Savior’s incarnate presence.” See Isaiah 53:2. rams’ skins dyed red – “The ram was a sacrificial offering accepted as a substitution for Abram’s beloved son, Isaac. The ram was also the acceptable sacrifice for the consecration of the tabernacle priests. How beautifully the red rams’ skins picture our risen Savior, Jesus Christ!”

Stacey Take a few minutes to savor Exodus Chapter 25. Then return here and ponder the thoughts, answer the questions, and be sure to leave comments about your own revelations… 25:1-7 – God introduced the freewill offering. See Exodus 12:35-36 to see where they got the offering from. 25:3 – Gold, because of its rarity and purity, represents God’s deity. See Matthew 2:11, Revelation 21:21-22. “…we offer God something more precious than gold when we joyfully lay down our sufferings on His altar and agree to be purified by the flames that threaten to consume us.” “silver was a visual aid by which God introduced and taught the concept of redemption and atonement through ransom money.” See Exodus 30:11-16, Zechariah 11:
