The Tabernacle

The Most Holy Place

The Most Holy Place

“But Christ came as High Priest of the good things to come, with the greater and more perfect tabernacle not made with hands, that is, not of this creation.  Not with the blood of goats and calves, but with His own blood He entered the Most Holy Place, once for all, having obtained eternal redemption.” Hebrews 9: 11-12 NKJV

During your lessons on Moses, please give yourself time to study the tabernacle.  Hebrews 8:5 tells us that the earthly tabernacle was a “copy and shadow of the heavenly things”.  God is very specific when He instructed Moses regarding the tabernacle.  Men could never presume to come before the LORD unless he came in the prescribed manner.  Make sure you go over words like “mercy” so the kids have a good understanding of this characteristic.

Tabernacle “Fill-in”

Note: “The Most Holy Place” is used in many translations, including KJV, as the place that the High Priest could enter only once a  year to sprinkle the blood on the mercy seat on the Day of Atonement . It is called “Holy of Holies”  in the American Standard and a few others.  Both are correct answers.
