  • 00:05:23.605 --> 00:05:28.443
  • female announcer: Moreover, thoushalt make the Tabernacle with
  • 00:05:28.477 --> 00:05:31.613
  • ten curtains of fine, twinedlinen, and blue, and purple, and
  • 00:05:31.646 --> 00:05:37.119
  • scarlet, with cherubims ofcunning work shalt thou
  • 00:05:37.152 --> 00:05:40.589
  • make them.
  • 00:05:40.622 --> 00:05:41.923
  • The length of the one curtainshall be eight and twenty
  • 00:05:41.957 --> 00:05:44.459
  • cubits, and the breadth of onecurtain four cubits, and every
  • 00:05:44.493 --> 00:05:49.297
  • one of the curtains shall haveone measure.
  • 00:05:49.331 --> 00:05:52.667
  • The five curtains shall becoupled together one to another,
  • 00:05:52.701 --> 00:05:56.471
  • and another five curtains shallbe coupled one to another.
  • 00:05:56.505 --> 00:06:01.910
  • Bishop Jakes: Everything'sconnected.
  • 00:06:01.943 --> 00:06:03.278
  • Read that last verse, isn'tthere a last verse in it?
  • 00:06:03.311 --> 00:06:07.215
  • female announcer: The length ofone curtain shall be 30 cubits,
  • 00:06:07.249 --> 00:06:10.552
  • and the breadth of one curtainfour cubits, and the 11 curtains
  • 00:06:10.585 --> 00:06:14.723
  • shall be all of one measure.
  • 00:06:14.756 --> 00:06:18.260
  • Bishop Jakes: So thecurtains were, I'm trying to
  • 00:06:18.293 --> 00:06:22.164
  • think of the word that the Bibleuses, they were skillfully made.
  • 00:06:22.197 --> 00:06:24.966
  • The artisans and craftsmen hadto work for months and months to
  • 00:06:25.000 --> 00:06:28.904
  • make these curtains.
  • 00:06:28.937 --> 00:06:30.405
  • I tried to find how thick theywere because the Bible talks
  • 00:06:30.439 --> 00:06:33.508
  • about how long and how high theyare, a cubit being about a foot
  • 00:06:33.542 --> 00:06:38.580
  • and a half.
  • 00:06:38.613 --> 00:06:39.948
  • So if you take a foot and a halfand multiply by how many cubits,
  • 00:06:39.981 --> 00:06:42.350
  • you have a length.
  • 00:06:42.384 --> 00:06:43.685
  • In the Bible days, when they gotready to measure a cubit, they
  • 00:06:43.718 --> 00:06:46.254
  • did it from the elbow to thefingertip, and that was about a
  • 00:06:46.288 --> 00:06:48.990
  • cubit, which is about a foot anda half on an average
  • 00:06:49.024 --> 00:06:51.092
  • person's hand.
  • 00:06:51.126 --> 00:06:52.461
  • So a foot and a half times theamount that it says, it gives
  • 00:06:52.494 --> 00:06:55.096
  • you the dimensions of thecurtain itself.
  • 00:06:55.130 --> 00:06:57.299
  • So the curtain is quite massive,but what you can't see is how
  • 00:06:57.332 --> 00:07:00.335
  • thick it was.
  • 00:07:00.368 --> 00:07:01.703
  • And so in order to find howthick it was, I couldn't find it
  • 00:07:01.736 --> 00:07:04.239
  • in the Bible, I couldn't find itin the commentaries, but
  • 00:07:04.272 --> 00:07:06.875
  • Josephus the historian says thatthe veil in the temple in the
  • 00:07:06.908 --> 00:07:11.379
  • days of Jesus was four inchesthick.
  • 00:07:11.413 --> 00:07:16.785
  • Said the fabric was woven sothick together that you could
  • 00:07:16.818 --> 00:07:20.655
  • put a horse on one end and ahorse on the other and they
  • 00:07:20.689 --> 00:07:23.725
  • couldn't rip it.
  • 00:07:23.758 --> 00:07:27.662
  • [speaking in tongues]
  • 00:07:27.696 --> 00:07:30.832
  • It could not be ripped by twohorses pullin' in two different
  • 00:07:30.866 --> 00:07:33.835
  • directions because that was howmuch the wall was built.
  • 00:07:33.869 --> 00:07:37.839
  • That wall, build that wall.
  • 00:07:37.873 --> 00:07:40.642
  • God said, I'll let you get closebut you can't get in, I'll let
  • 00:07:40.675 --> 00:07:43.979
  • you get near but you can't getin.
  • 00:07:44.012 --> 00:07:45.814
  • I'll let your prayers seepthrough the fabric so that I
  • 00:07:45.847 --> 00:07:49.484
  • could smell them, but you can'tget in.
  • 00:07:49.518 --> 00:07:51.820
  • I'll let your priests come inonce a year and bring about
  • 00:07:51.853 --> 00:07:55.190
  • peace with God, but you can'tget in.
  • 00:07:55.223 --> 00:07:57.292
  • This curtain is four inchesthick.
  • 00:07:57.325 --> 00:07:59.261
  • It's about 30-and-some feethigh, it is folded, manifold,
  • 00:07:59.294 --> 00:08:03.765
  • manifold, manifold, so thickthat you cannot get in.
  • 00:08:03.798 --> 00:08:08.436
  • My thoughts are above yourthoughts, my ways above your
  • 00:08:08.470 --> 00:08:11.773
