A traveling exhibition recently reproduced the structure and operation of ancient Israel’s wilderness sanctuary for thousands of people visiting Santa Maria Shopping Center in Brazil’s capital city of Brasilia. “Expo Santuário” took place November 28-29, 2020.
The tabernacle, as it is also known, was part of the history of the Hebrew people shortly after they were freed from their captivity in ancient Egypt. The goal of the exhibition was to create awareness about the tabernacle, its parts, and its symbolism. According to the biblical books of Leviticus, Daniel, Hebrews, and Revelation, they are theologically linked to Christ’s atoning death and intercession ministry.
Rúben Freitas, one of the pastors behind the initiative, explained that the activity took place during what has become known in Brazil as Black Friday. “We presented Jesus to those who had been looking for offers because He is the greatest offer of all time,” he said.
