Christians often wonder whether it is worth their time to read and study the odd narratives about the construction of the tabernacle in the second half of the book of Exodus. Since the Tabernacle and it worship rituals are now relics of history, it is assumed there is nothing we can learn from them.
In truth, the tabernacle narratives have much to teach us about God himself, about sin, about redemption in Christ, and about how we are to live for God today. In God in our Midst: The Tabernacle and our Relationship with God, Rev. Daniel R. Hyde shows that these obscurer narratives are "profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness.
By employing solid hermeneutical principles and New Testament revelation, Hyde demonstrates that the Tabernacle passages point to Christ. He encourages readers, when considering the confusing details of the tabernacle, not to ask questions about the meaning of minor prophets, but rather to ask, "What does this passage teach me about God, about my sins, about redemption in Christ, and about how I am to live?
God in our midst is an encouraging and enlightening tour through the Bible's overarching narrative, showing that we serve the same God who said, "I will dwell in your midst," the God who tells us that we are the true tabernacle, the dwelling place of God.
