The Word for today:
The Bible often displays a balanced symmetry, which serves to focus our attention on the center.
The Temple described in Ezekiel is a bookend on the other side of the cross.
When you read the books of Moses, the first five books of the Bible, you will read all about the construction of the Tabernacle.
At the very heart of the Mosaic law is the sacrificial system, which was enacted in the Tabernacle. At the very heart of the sacrificail system was a lamb.
If you lived at the time, your Dad would purchase a lamb, a healthy, bounding fluffy lamb. For four days, the Lamb would live in your house, just long enough for you to get to know and love the lamb. Then, your Dad would take the lamb to the door of the Tabernacle and confess your family's sins over it. Then he would slit its throat.
The lamb would then be roasted on the altar of burnt offering.
That was a prophecy, looking ahead to when Jesus would save our souls
The sacrifices will be a commemoration, looking back to when Jesus did save the souls of Israel.
Then the picture will be complete, with the Tabernacle and Temple as bookends on either side of the Word made flesh.
