Centered on the Word
In 1st Kings 5, Solomon announces the building of the Temple. In chapter 8 they bring the Ark into the completed Temple containing nothing but the stone tablets that Moses had put in the Ark.
(In the message, Pastor Tony mentions that the instructions for building the Temple were given to Moses in Leviticus. Not quite. The Tabernacle instructions were given to Moses. But if you compare the Tabernacle and the Temple dimensions, the Temple is in almost every respect 2.22 time bigger than the Tabernacle. Just to clear that up.)
But this is also Reformation Sunday, and we also talk about Martin Luther and the freedom of the Word of God among us even today.
