In this portion we discuss many of the aspects of the Tabernacle and what all can be seen by closely examining it. As we look at this pattern or blueprint, we begin to realize that much of the terminology is very biological in nature. In essence we are seeing a body when we see the tabernacle. Not only that, could it also be that we are seeing an elaborate calendar encoded in the dimensions of the tabernacle?
In the portion Terumah, the children of Israel are each given an opportunity to contribute items for the construction of the Tabernacle and all of its furnishings. Keith discusses the symbolism of many of these components such as various kinds of metals, colors, etc. We are being shown an amazing pattern that illustrates an unseen realm and forces. It is important that we look closely at the model of the tabernacle in order to understand many other passages in the scripture.
