“My kids and I have been going through verse by verse of Revelation with you. I have a question. You mentioned in chapter 8 that Jesus “the angel” is near the table of shewbread having two crowns, according to Exodus 25:24-25. I looked up in Exodus and it talks about making a crown of gold round about and another Bible Version said a molding of gold all around. Here is my question: “Are these two crowns on the table or as I see it as a frame around the table to seal or protect it” How do you get or see two crowns??”
Hello, you said,
When looking at the table of shewbread, there are two stacks of six loaves of bread.
Leviticus 24:5 And thou shalt take fine flour, and bake twelve cakes thereof: two tenth deals shall be in one cake.
Leviticus 24:6 And thou shalt set them in two rows, six on a row, upon the pure table before the LORD.
There are two crowns, as mentioned in the verse you sited. Sure, they could be guards, but that doesn’t take away from their symbolism. So, because–as covered later in the series–Christ is at the lamp stands in chapter one, at the table of shewbread in chapter five, and at the altar of incense in chapter eight. He later moves into the Most Holy place in chapter eleven. You can see that all articles of furniture are mentioned–as long as the table of shewbread is pictured as having two stacks of bread and two crowns–one for the Father, one for the Son (as Christ sat on the right hand of the throne of majesty). =)
