Biblical Nuggets: The Tabernacle

The TabernacleThis portable temple was built in the wilderness by the Israelites circa 1450 BC after they were freed from Egyptian slavery. The tabernacle was the first temple dedicated to God and the first resting place of the ark of the covenant. It served as a place of worship and sacrifices during the Israelites’ 40 years in the desert while conquering the land of Canaan.[1]
