Bible study 88 – Exodus 38

Next, the sacrificial altar and the courtyard are constructed. After it follows a list of how much gold, silver and bronze was used to create the temple: About a ton of gold, three tons of silver, and two tons of bronze. It sounds like a lot, but I guess if they are a million people and they all contribute a few grams each, it’s not impossible. Still, it will be quite a lot of work to drag this “portable” shrine through the Sinai desert.

Exodus 38:18
The screen for the entrance to the court was embroidered with needlework in blue, purple, and crimson yarns and fine twisted linen. It was twenty cubits long and, along the width of it, five cubits high, corresponding to the hangings of the court.
