The Tabernacle Furniture Set contains 1:10 scale models with relevant pieces electroplated in gold. The set provides a helpful visual when teaching on the tabernacle. Each item is carefully designed according to the guidelines laid out in Scripture to give you an accurate tool to help in your teaching. As the word "glory" carries with it a concept of weightiness, each article in this set has physical weight, helping reinforce the concept of God’s glory. This set comes in a sturdy and padded carrying case. This set is included in the Worldview Rethink Gold Kit.
Use the Tabernacle Furniture Set to help bring clarity and understanding to the significance of the tabernacle articles.
The overall instructions for constructing the ark are quite specific with the exception of the cherubim. The details of this model are kept simple but elegant. This is an item that can be left on your desk or mantel as a conversation starter. Once you have someone interested in the ark, you can give them a copy of "The Stranger" or "By This Name."

The altar of incense is also known as the golden altar. One advantage to 3-dimensional visual aids is that they can be handled. All of these pieces are quite robust and should last for years.
Altar of Incense Dimensions (5.8 cm x 5.1 cm x 10.4 cm. 2.3" x 2" x 4.1")
Though its shape is known, the Bible does not give the size of the menorah. However, when the Roman General Titus destroyed the Jewish temple, an arch was made in Rome to commemorate his victory. It shows the plundered furniture. The menorah in this set was design based on a careful study of that monument.
Lampstand Dimensions (10.2 cm x 6 cm x 13.5 cm. 4" x 2.4" x 5.3")
It is not known how the bread was placed. The loaves are provided as shown, but can be changed.
Table of Showbread Dimensions (8.9 cm x 6.4 cm x 8.4 cm. 3.5" x 2.5" x 3.3")
People are often surprised at the size of this altar. It was quite large in comparison to the other pieces. There is debate as to whether the grate was inside the altar across the middle or down along the lower side. This set accommodates both views, with the inside grate being removable. Both interpretations can be taught.
Bronze Altar Dimensions (25.4 cm x 25.4 cm x 15.2 cm. 10" x 10" x 6")
Other than the fact that it was some sort of water container and had a base, there are no dimensions given for this piece of furniture. This one was sized based on the fact that it had to be carried.
Laver Dimensions (3.3 cm x 3.3 cm x 7.62 cm. 1.3" x 1.3" x 3")
The Bible tells us that these items were placed in the ark of the covenant.

We work amongst a remote people group in the Philippines. Translating the book of Exodus was very difficult but having the Tabernacle furniture and the tabernacle model was a tremendous help. My language helpers were able to describe what they were seeing and holding with their own hands. The look on their faces when they first saw the pieces was priceless! I’m sure we could have translated Exodus without these tools but having them made it so MUCH easier. We highly recommend these tools to anyone translating or teaching on the tabernacle.

We have a plastic model of the tabernacle which we thought had great quality. When we received the tabernacle furniture set we were more than pleased with the quality and craftsmanship of each item. It is well made, sturdy and makes for a great presentation. People are visually pleased and impressed with the quality of the furniture and it only prepares the stage for telling the story of the suffering of Jesus, his death and demonstrating visually the implication of the “veil being torn in two”. It has provided us with a clean visual of what Jesus completed on the cross when explaining the how we now can boldly approach the throne of grace!
Thanks Goodseed for taking the time to invest in this valuable tool to bring clarity to the Word.

I just received the tabernacle furniture in the mail and am overwhelmed with its quality. This set of furniture truly is magnificent and goes beyond all that I could have hoped for. I like to collect different objects from around the world, but this one, by far, is now my most prized collectors piece. It is stunning and will be a great tool for teaching the children and the adults in my congregation (it also looks good in my office). I would also say that you get far more than you pay for. I have no idea how such a quality item could be sold at such a low price.
God bless you in the work he has called you to,

I have the whole set of furniture pieces from Good Seed and really appreciate it. It is a quality representation of the what was used by Israel. I have used it in many meetings, as the visual aids are invaluable in presenting the lessons. Thanks for a job well-done.
