Wicklow Way 7b Glendalough to Glenmalur

Google Map

The route can be done in two stages
first from Glendalough lower car park
to the ridge at Mullacor. 
The walk could be shortened by paying a fee
and using the upper car park. 
The second stage is from the entrance
to Glenmalur Woods
on the Military Road to the ridge at Mullacor.
Again the route could be shortened
by using the car park along the Avonbeg river,
but it would then take two climbs to complete the route.

The Tabernacle and Animal Sacrifices
Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy

God had re-established his Kingdom in the Nation of Israel and re-established his gracious presence with his people ( as it had been with Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden ). Because this had been done in anticipation of the coming CHAMPION  KING (who is going to deal with humanity sin problem) the institutions were temporary and incomplete. 
God's gracious presence was symbolised in the inner portion of a large tent called the Tabernacle where ( only ) the representative of the Nation of Israel (the High Priest) entered once a year and met with God. This Tabernacle ceremony and others were conducted with animal sacrifices, to indicate that sin had to be dealt with before complete an true fellowship with God could be obtained.
