This brief booklet could be the basis for an extended study on the Old Testament Tabernacle. Dowley discusses the construction of the inner and outer courts and the Holy of Holies. He also includes the dimensions and construction of the pieces of furniture. Each section has several color drawings so the reader can get an idea of its appearance.
The writer traces the history of the Tabernacle from the wilderness where it was constructed to its final resting place in the Promised Land. He also uses an illustrated map to trace the Ark to Philistine territory when Samuel's sons lost it in battle.
After Solomon completed the Temple in Jerusalem, the Ark of the Covenant retained its importance and was moved into the Holy of Holies in the Temple. We have no biblical information that the Tabernacle itself survived.
Serious Bible students will appreciate the section on the symbolism of the Tabernacle. Virtually every component of the Tabernacle has its fulfillment in the life and ministry of the Lord Jesus Christ.
