The temple built by Moses in the desert is the most extraordinary of all the Old Testament ritual types. As a prefiguration of the facts of the New Covenant, DeAlmeida finds as antitypes not only Jesus and the Christian but also the church as a whole, since "Christ did not enter a sanctuary made with human hands, a replica of the true one, but heaven, that he may now appear before the face of God on our behalf." The author, in a simple and enlightening way, presents in this work abundant references to the divisions of the tabernacle, its rich furniture, the materials used in its construction, the four colors indicating the four gospels, the different offerings, the numbers applied to the pieces, the sacrifices, and so forth. These typological riches, associated with the great annual feasts and the Levitical priesthood, constitute precious and practical lessons on how to live the true Christian faith today. The strong presence, in this book, of the number five--which indicates divine grace--shows us that in the tabernacle, the glory of the church shines. This book purports to be original, as it focuses on the subject from a spiritual point of view.
