Exodus (Program #127) – The Priestly Garments (13 & 14) Alphabet

The garment worn by the high priest in the Old Testament gives us a wonderful picture of many aspects of Christ.  But the breastplate that was the outer-most item of the priestly garment also gives us a picture of God’s redeemed people, the church and how God conveys His word and will to man through the church.

Exodus (Program #126) – The Priestly Garments (12) Urim and Thummin for Joshua, Eleazar, Aaron

It was recently reported, that although sales for the Bible has actually increased in recent years, reading the Bible is at an all time low.  The reasons given by most people for not reading the Bible that they own is that they simply don’t understand the Bible.  Well, we all experience not being able to understand the Bible from time to time.  Many of the Old Testament books are difficult.  But when we are given the keys to unlock all the marvelous types and pictures that are given to us in the Old Testament becomes a brand new book.  More of those keys are waiting for us today.

Exodus (Program #123) – The Priestly Garments (8) Lord’s Leading, the Church

The church of God was not manifested until the New Testament age.  It occupies many pages even chapters of New Testament scripture.  Though was never spoken of directly in the Old Testament, the pictures and types of the church embedded in the Old Testament are the richest and finest.

We have been looking at the details of the priestly garments from Exodus 28.  We come to an item today called the breastplate.  It is described in verses 15 and 16 of chapter 28 in Exodus.  Verse 15 “You shall make a breastplate of judgment, the work of a skillful workman like the work of the Ephod you shall make it, of gold, blue, and purple and scarlet and fine twined linen you shall make it.”

Exodus (Program #120) – The Priestly Garments (5) The Priestly Garments (5) Breastplate and Onyx Stones

In Genesis, God created man from the dust of the ground.  Soon after He placed man by a river.  By the flow of the river were precious stones.  Though man was made of dust, his destiny in God’s plan is to become something so precious; not precious dust, but precious stones.

We want to take another look today at this most unique item of the priestly garments, and that is the Ephod.  We mentioned earlier that the Hebrew word Ephod has no English equivalent.  This is the actual Hebrew word.  It refers to an item that we don’t know a great deal about, other than it look somewhat like a vest, apparently from the description here in Exodus 28.  What do we know about the Ephod and what it look like?

Exodus (Program #119) – The Priestly Garments (4) Breastplate and Ephod

When God met with Moses on Mount Sinai, He gave him the ten commandments, but He also gave him detailed instructions on how to build the tabernacle, a kind of portable temple.  Then He turned to the elaborated garments to be worn by the priests, especially the high priest.  Each of the detailed account provides us with marvelous pictures of our own experience of Christ.  The priestly garments, these are our focus on today’s life study of the Bible.
