When we think about the great events recorded in the book of Exodus, it is easy to remember such things as the miracles that Moses performed, the plagues that the Lord sent on Egypt, the destruction of the Egyptian army at the Red Sea, the manna in the wilderness, and so forth. Of course, it is appropriate to remember these supernatural wonders, but they are actually not the high point of the narrative of Exodus. All these things paved the way for the high point of Exodus—namely, God’s taking up residence in the tabernacle among His people (Ex. 40:34–38).

This month, we are finishing our study of the book of Exodus, looking at chapters 34–40. It can be easy to overlook this section or to breeze through it too quickly, for chapters 35–39 especially repeat much of the earlier material. As we will see in our study, however, this portion of Exodus represents the climax of the book. God, having reinstituted His covenant with Israel after the golden calf incident, finally takes up residence among the Israelites. We will consider the profound significance of this and how it points to an even better dwelling of God among us in the person of Jesus Christ.
