"And gather thou all the congregation together unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.
And Moses did as the Lord commanded him; and the assembly was gathered together unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.
And Moses said unto the congregation, This is the thing which the Lord commanded to be done."
Up until this point I have been reading the instructions for building a tabernacle and how the ordinances are to be performed in it. This chapter was the first performance of the ordinances. Moses is showing how it is to be done. It also reminded me of the dedication I see of the temples today.
What I pondered on was how these things are handed down from God to his prophet, and from there to His people. That this knowledge is passed from one generation to another. All the congregation is gathered so all will learn. How many untold numbers of temple workers have there been over the years? How they were all taught from those that have gone before them. God does have a marvelous plan for teaching his children.
