An article and a video about Tabernacle (Mishkan)

Here is a nice article that discusses Tabernacle (Mishkan) structure. It is called "Shaping up the Form of the Tabernacle" by Bohdan Hrobon, University of Zilina, Slovakia.

The abstract says the following:
"Sketches of the Tabernacle based on Ex 26 depend on the understanding of the obscure Hebrew term qršym and the even more obscure v. 24 that describes two qršym of special use. Being a determinative element of a relatively complex construction, the exposition of qršym inevitably involves some discussion of the other components. Therefore, close attention is paid to the arrangements of the tent curtains as prescribed in vv. 9, 12, and 13, proposing an alternative reading of v. 9 and determining the length of the Tabernacle. Consequently, a novel interpretation of Ex 26:24 that contributes to the Tabernacle’s symmetry and plausibility is suggested."
You can download and read the full article right here.

And here is a nice video of a Tabernacle replica. The replica is not very accurate but it is worth to check it out anyway as it would give an overall impression of the size and scale of the Tabernacle. The video is in Russian. Sorry.
