Thank you. I'm glad you like my work.

The height of the outer curtain of the Tent was 10 cubits.

The height of the outer curtains of the Courtyard was 5 cubits.

In other words, curtain height matched the height of the respective pillars.

In fact, the height of the Courtyard curtains is mentioned explicitly in 27:18. (5 cubits)

Thank you so much for providing such detailed views. I was just re-reading the Word and wondered if anyone had done exactly what you have completed here. Thank you again for helping to make the Word come alive even more.

Aleksandr Sigalov said...

Thank you Scott.

The Tabernacle is, in my opinion, one of the most magnificent parts of the Pentateuch. And I think a lot of people underestimate its significance and its beauty.

Enjoy and God bless.

I really appreciate the work you've done so far. I had the blessing of visiting the Tabernacle this weekend. I was wondering, have you tried to put a price tag on recreating this tabernacle? Of course with-out the actual usage of gold/silver.

Thank you for your comment John,

No, unfortunately I have not tried to do that.

As far as I can tell to build a life-size replica of the Tabernacle would probably run you about $250k-$500k. This is if we are talking about a decent replica with all of the details and nice substitute materials. As you can see even w/o real gold it is still very expensive proposition.

I know there are a few life-size replicas in the US already (some of them I featured here on my blog). And even though I do not agree with the way they are representing the Tabernacle, I still applaud those people as this is probably a very time and resource consuming job.

Besides, from the Biblical perspective, the labor and material cost is irrelevant, as the Tabernacle was built "for free" (out of free will) by the Children of Israel so that God can dwell in their midst (Exodus 25:8). Therefore, if enough people would want to build the real thing (or even a replica) the cost is the last issue to worry about.

But if you will ever decide to build one, let me know as i would be interested ;)

The detail here is really good...the artwork not so good. I guess it's a fair tradeoff.

Sairaj said...

Can anyone explain briefly about the tabernacle in the bible and how to apply this message in our spiritual life ????


Thanks & Regards

Dear Sairaj,
Our spiritual life depends on knowing who God is. The tabernacle teaches us that God is holy. It teaches us that He loves us and fervently desires to be reconciled to us and to dwell with us. It teaches us that He must be central in our lives. The sacrifices reveal the meaning of the sacrifice of Christ on the cross and shows us all it accomplished. On a more personal level, it shows us how to truly enter the presence of God when we pray, and how to really make up with anyone you have wronged. And these things are just the tip of the iceberg!
