The Table of Shewbread


 A replica of The Table of Shewbread was part of the Old Testament Tabernacle
 display last weekend at the Selma Pilgrimage. Tabernacle Ministries of Mobile 
 brought the exhibit to Selma. "Shewbread" or "showbread" means "bread of the face"
 or set out before the face and presence of God.

 
Exodus 25:23-30 "You shall also make a table of acacia wood; two cubits shall be its length, a cubit its width, and a cubit and a half its height. And you shall overlay it with pure gold, and make a molding of gold all around. You shall make for it a frame of a handbreadth all around, and you shall make a gold molding for the frame all around. And you shall make for it four rings of gold, and put the rings on the four corners that are at its four legs. The rings shall be close to the frame, as holders for the poles to bear the table. And you shall make the poles of acacia wood, and overlay them with gold, that the table may be carried with them. You shall make its dishes, its pans, its pitchers, and its bowls for pouring.
 You shall make them of pure gold. And you shall set the showbread on the table before Me always."
