The Table of Shewbread
Place your curser over the picture above
to see what it means for us today
There were two stacks of shewbread,
and each stack of shewbread had a container
on top with burning frankincense in it.
The Table of Shewbread is located on the north side of the Holy Place across from the Lamp Stand. It was two cubits in length, one cubit wide, and one and a half cubits in height. It was made out of acacia wood overlaid with gold.
The shewbread was baked without leaven. It had dishes made out of solid gold. The priest and their sons were to eat the shewbread every Sabbath when they came to put oil in the Lamp Stand.
The twelve tribes of Israel where given the law. Twelve is a type of the government, and bread is a type of the word; therefore, the twelve loaves of shewbread is a type of the law because the Ten Commandments was the word given in the day of Moses. The sacrificial laws were done away with when the SAVIOR died on the cross, now the Ten Commandment are written on our hearts and in our minds. The desire kill, cheat, lie, steal, or worship another god is not to be a part of us. Our love for Yahweh and others takes the place of the laws written on the stones given to Moses.
Those Ten Commandments given to Moses by Yahweh on Mount Sinai teaches us how to love Yahweh and our neighbors. There are different study guides that are available to help us study the Bible. The Lord uses the written and spoken word to teach us and he also uses dreams, visions, prophecy, and revelations to help us to understand the Bible.
Communion, which we take on Passover, is taken with bread and wine. The bread is a type of the SAVIOR and the wine is a type of the anointing. When we read the Bible and do what it tells us to do, we are eating of the shewbread. The Bible tells us how we are to act and react, and the law leads us to Yahweh.
the SAVIOR said unto them, I am the bread of life:
he that comes to me shall never hunger;
and he that believes on me shall never thirst."
St. John 6:35
