The Wilderness Tabernacle (Exodus 25-30)
Solomon's Temple (1 Kings 5-9; 2 Chronicles 2-7)
After the Babylonian Captivity (The Books of Ezra and Nehemiah)
During Oppression by Rome (Luke 7:2-5; 19:41-44)
But one question that I think is often debated or at least pondered on by many Christians is whether or not the laws and statues of Leviticus still apply to us today. Do we still need to study them? The first letter to the Corinthians tells us that we are the temple of the Holy Spirit. Are there not principles from the Levitical law which we can apply to our lives so that we may be pure and holy, tried and true?
The sanctuary serves not only as a dwelling place for God, but also as a model, an illustration, of the heavenly sanctuary, the plan of salvation. Should we not study the sanctuary in order that we might be better acquainted with God story for our lives?
I believe so; and I do hope and pray that by the end of this month, you too will believe the same. While we cannot cover everything about the sanctuary in one 30-day period, God has given us a guide -- that is, the Bible -- to be utilized for doctrine, reproof, correction, and instruction that we may be furnished unto perfection and righteousness.
