The Tabernacle consisted of a framework of 48 wooden boards overlaid with gold. These 48 boards stood in 96 sockets of silver. Each of the boards measured 10 cubits (15 feet) in height, 1.5 cubits (27 inches) in width. They were made of acacia wood and overlaid with gold - portraying Jesus Christ the perfect God-man. On the outside of the framework, there were five bars of acacia wood overlaid with gold on each side. The boards had golden rings on them. As the bars were inserted into the rings, they would act as bracing that held the entire structure together firmly. "The whole body, being fitted and held together by whatever joint supplies, according to the proper working of each individual part, causes the growth of the body for the building up of itself in love" (Ephesians 4:16).   See details on the boards...
