Comparison of the opinions on the Mishkan


Ok, so here is the analysis of the all interpretations of the dimensions of the Mishkan.

Version "A" (Pentateuch version)

1) In agreement with pentateuch.
2) Very light weight of the resulting Mishkan

Version "B" (Talmud\Rav. Nechemyah version)
1) It is impossible logically and mathematically to confirm stated thickness of the boards(1 Cubit) and stated width of the Holly of Holllies(10 cubits). (as per Talmudic/Rashi description)
2) Stated location of the golden and brass clasps of the first and second coverings of the tent do not make any sense. (both per Pentateuch and Talmud)
3) Unmovable weight of the resulting Mishkan.

Version "C" (Rashi\Baraita version)
1) Location of golden clasps of the first covering directly contradicts Pentateuch.
2) Unmovable weight of the resulting Mishkan.

Version "D" (Talmud\Rav. Yehudah)
1) Corner boards do not fit and do not make any sense (Talmud confirms that)
2) Unmovable weight of the resulting Mishkan.
