The Holy House – Tabernacle
My name is Gabriel Fink, and I have created this website about the ancient tabernacle to share the knowledge that I have gained through prayer, study, and contemplation of the scriptures.
The Tabernacle has fascinated me for over a decade. Back in 1994, my seminary teacher had the class recreate a model of the tabernacle. That lesson stuck with me. Four years later before departing on a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to Mexico City, another mentor taught me some additional symbolic meanings of that holy structure. This instruction has had a lasting impact on my heart and mind.
The fruit of these planted seeds began to flourish upon discovery of Google Sketchup, a free computer program which creates 3-D models with ease. While tinkering with the program one day, I began to ‘build’ a model of the tabernacle. As I began, several questions began to arise as I read the scriptures. What was a tenon? What was the length of a cubit? Where do the vessels of the tabernacle go? This lead me to search and ponder the scriptures of the Old Testament in a way I had never before attempted.
The results of my study and efforts to ‘build’ the tabernacle have strengthened my testimony of the Lord Jesus Christ. In my view, the tabernacle is perhaps one of the greatest parables ever taught.
Over the last several years, I have received many comments and questions from people who have visited this website. Please feel free to contact me with any comments, suggestions, or questions.
My wife and I have been married for almost twelve years and we have four children. While my wife and children are the focus of my life, I do not discuss or post pictures on the internet for personal reasons.
Between 1999 – 2001 I served a Spanish speaking mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Mexico City North mission. These two years provided a strong foundation for future endeavors and increased my love of my fellow brothers and sisters upon the Earth. The purpose of my mission was to invite others to follow the example of the Son of the Living God.
My current place of residence is the Sacramento, California area. Choices in life have led me to become a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) performing financial statement attestations.
