Abstract

The ultimate object lesson is set up at BYU in the quad between Kimball Tower and the Joseph Smith Building (JSB) this October. It’s a life-size replica of Moses’s tabernacle, complete with an altar of sacrifice and the ark of the covenant. Through tours BYU students and community members are learning about the ancient rituals that took place in the Biblical tabernacle and how animal sacrifice, the burning of incense, and the menorah connect to modern LDS beliefs.
