Exodus 26-31 focuses the making of the tabernacle, priestly garments, and the altar (some artists' representations of these are shown in this video). Various sacrifices are also discussed. In Exodus 32, we see the rebellion of the children of Israel and the making and worship of the golden calf. We see Moses pleading for mercy for the people and a reference to the Book of Life. The Book of Life is also mentioned elsewhere in both the Old and New Testaments, and Dr. Thiel mentions who will be listed in the Book of Life and who will not be. This is the tenth sermon in a multi-part series covering the Book of Exodus. In this sermon, Dr. Thiel goes over each of the verses in Exodus 26-32 and ties some of them to passages elsewhere in the Bible. Topics include Jesus and the Atonement, purity, patience, prayer, anointing, idolatry, and warnings to the Hebrews and modern Christians.
