A full size model of the Israelite tabernacle has been constructed in Timna Park, 17 miles north of Eilat. This was one of the big reasons I wanted to visit Eilat on this trip. The tabernacle was built while the Israelites were at Mount Sinai (Exodus 25-40). The tabernacle was a movable tent of worship which was taken each place Israel wandered during the forty years in the wilderness. Stephen spoke of the tabernacle this way:
“Our fathers had the tabernacle of testimony in the wilderness, just as He who spoke to Moses directed him to make it according to the pattern which he had seen. (Acts 7:44)
I walked up hill above the tabernacle model and took this view of the tabernacle with the laver and the altar of burnt offering in the courtyard.
If you are ever near Eilat, drop by and see this wonderful model.
