Exodus 27

The altar and the courtyard for the tabernacle. Comments ditto the last two chapters… God is a theatrical and detailed designer. This is a tent for his presence, a theology he blew alert when Jesus died and the curtain of the temple was turn in two from top to bottom. Now I am a tent for his presence.

It’s strange to contemplate a religion of Jehovah that did not have a theology of the spirit. Of course the Israelites would also have the cloud guiding them by day and the flame by night. But but indwelling. 

Our church architecture today keeps some notion of being a holy place, quite misleading, but shows how resonant the concept is.
