Exodus 40:1-38 – The glory of Yahweh filled the tabernacle signifying Yahweh’s approval and presence.

Leviticus 8:1-9:24
Moses did just as Yahweh commanded – 4, 9, 13, 17, 21, 29, 31, 33, 34, 35, and 36.

9:23 and 24
- Fire came out from before Yahweh and consumed the burnt offering. Yahweh was into it!

2 Chronicles 5:11-14; (1Kings 8:6-11); 2Chronicles 6:1-7:7
In the Temple, the glory of Yahweh appears.

Ezekiel 1:22-28
- Yahweh’s throne is seen here as portable, moving.

- Vision of God’s glory departing from the Temple

- Promise of the future when the glory of Yahweh would return to Jerusalem and the Temple

- The glory of Yahweh returns with the millennial age and the new Temple.

Zechariah 14:4; Acts 1: 11 and 12
He will return to the Mount of Olives.

Isaiah 35:1-10; 40:1-8; 60-62


Hebrew 9:4 and 5 - …the ark of the covenant covered on all sides with gold, in which was a golden jar holding the manna, and Aaron’s rod which budded, and the tables of the covenant; and above it were the cherubim of glory overshadowing the mercy seat; but of these things we cannot now speak in detail

The Ark of the Covenant in the tabernacle and the Temple was a type for Jesus. The millennium age Temple will not have the ark because Jesus will be there.
• Manna Exodus 16:4-21 - Jesus the bread of life (John 6)
• Tables of the covenant (Exodus 24:9-18) - the Word of God (John1) and the new covenant
• Aaron, the high priest (Numbers 14:1-10; 16:1-17-ff) – Jesus, the last high priest (Hebrews 7 and 8)
• The mercy seat (Exodus 16:2; 25:22) – Jesus our propitiation [mercy seat] (Romans 3:25)

Luke 2:1-20 The shepherds saw the glory of Yahweh.
