Sanctuary Book Project

"Thy way, O God, is in the sanctuary... Ps.77:13 

My journey in studying the sanctuary started as a college student. Later, my 3rd grade son came home from his Bible class with the assignment of making a model of the sanctuary.  We opened up the book of Exodus and followed the directions as close as we could to build a scale model using wood and fabric.  What a learning experience for both of us!     

  Later, when I was tasked with instructing a children's class at church, I  felt they needed to understand the unbroken connection between the Old and New Testament. What better way than a study of the Gospel in the Old Testament Sanctuary?  I started drawing up scale models of the furniture on paper so the kids could all have a hands on learning experience.  After completing the study and the hands-on model, those young students were able to explain it to the adults!

The study book can be used separately, or as a combined book which includes the model. For groups, each individual can complete the study book and work together on completing the model.
