with us

the Tabernacle in the Wilderness, the Temple in Jerusalem, and the Presence of God with us

This course is about the Tabernacle in the wilderness and the Temple which stood in Jerusalem at various times in history. But, really, this course is about PRESENCE. The Presence of God.

And, it’s about what God’s desire to be among us so closely says about God. God - who could be anywhere in the universe - wants to be with US, and that tells us something remarkable about God’s character.
