Tabernacle In The Wilderness - The High Priest And His Garments (Part Two) (by Pastor Linda Pugsley)
(Scriptural References: Hebrews 8:1-2, 6-8; Hebrews 9:2-15, 24-28; the Old Testament Scriptures outlined in the previous section)
Even the garments the priests wore were a description of the character of Christ. Because they were depicting His holiness, God commanded that the material, even the texture as well as the workmanship, were to be the very best and most excellent of its kind. There was to be fine linen, pure gold, precious stones, costly ointment, skilled workmanship and wise hearts in it all.
The garments of the priest were the ephod (breastplate) with gem stones, the white linen trousers, the white linen coat with sash, the blue tunic with pomegranates and bells on them and a head covering. Each and every piece, including each of the 12 gem stones had specific meaning, still applicable today. It is far too lengthy to recount them all in this summary, but each item is covered in the audio portion of this series.
