‘Put the bread of the Presence on this table
to be before me at all times.’
The table also had a crown of gold, and was lifted by poles to shoulder-height, so that the bread speaking of Christ was carried high. The twelve loaves were also called ‘showbread’, or ‘bread of faces’ because they represent the people of God, as seen in Christ, seeking the face of God.
May we enter into that experience as often as we can.
