Exodus (Program #122) – The Priestly Garments (7) Held to the Lord, Transformation, Onyx Stone

The details that God revealed to Moses regarding the design and furnishings of the tabernacle convey a lot of spiritual insights into our own experience of Christ and the Christian life.  In a similar way, Jehovah was careful and very specific as He revealed all the items that the High Priest had to wear in conducting the priestly service in the tabernacle.  Among these items, six in total, the Ephod is most mysterious and full of marvelous, spiritual meaning.  We return today for another look at the priestly garments.

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?
