Matthew 13 tells of many parables on the Kingdom of heaven: The sower, the wheat and tares, the mustard seed and the yeast, the hidden treasure, the pearl of great worth and the fishermen and the net. Then Jesus explains what the parables mean to his disciples. The parables were well received, except in his own hometown, about which Jesus said: ” Only in his hometown and in his own house is a prophet without honor”.

Exodus 36 describes how the tabernacle was built.

Exodus 37 tells of the Ark with its cherubim, the table, the lampstand and the altar of incense.
