Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Exodus 25:31


25:31 This candlestick had many branches drawn from the main shaft, which had not only bowls to put the oil and the kindled wick in for necessity, but knops made in the form of a pomegranate and flowers for ornament. The tabernacle had no windows, all its light was candle - light, which notes the comparative darkness of that dispensation, while the sun of righteousness was not as yet risen, nor had the day - star from on high visited his church. Yet God left not himself without witness, nor them without instruction; the commandment was a lamp, and the law a light, and the prophets were branches from that lamp, which gave light in their several ages. The church is still dark, as the tabernacle was, in comparison with what it will be in heaven: but the word of God is the candlestick, a light burning in a dark place.


Discussion for Exodus 25

  • A disciple
    "Speak unto the children of Israel, that they bring me an offering: of every man that gives it willingly with his heart ye shall take my offering." In another place it is written about if any Levite wishes to come and serve the LORD, he may come, and he shall be accepted and have equal part with all the others. The call of God is to those who are willing to come and we are accepted of Him by that.
  • A disciple
    "And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Speak unto the children of Israel, that they bring me an offering: of every man that gives it willingly with his heart ye shall take my offering...And let them make me a sanctuary; that I may dwell among them." Every one of us is precious and uniquely made an expression of the image and glory of our Father in heaven, with beauty and purpose for serving Him!

    Did you mean old testament? Jesus is the fulfillment of the O/T. Jesus himself taught much about the O/T. Also the book of Hebrews. When reading the O/T always keep christ in mind.
