Scofield's Reference NotesScofield's Notes

Verse 1

Then Solomon

The consecration of the temple illustrates all consecration. The temple, like the believer 1 Thessalonians 5:23 was threefold: the court, that which was outward, visible, answered to the body; the holy place, where everything appealed to the sacred emotions, answered to the soul; the holy of holies, the place of communion with God Exodus 25:22 answered to the spirit of man. The ark was the most all- inclusive type of Christ of any one of the vessels of the tabernacle. (See Scofield "Exodus 25:22- :") . When, therefore, the priests brought the ark into the court, the holy place, and the holy of holies, they were, in type, enthroning Christ over the body, with its powers and appetites; the soul, seat of the emotions and desires; and the mind, seat of the capacity to know and commune with God. See Scofield "Exodus 25:22- :" note 3. In Christian experience this answers to ; Romans 12:1-3; Ephesians 5:18.

Verse 2


Seventh month i.e. October.

Verse 10


1 Kings 8:10; 1 Kings 8:11. (See Scofield "1 Kings 8:11- :")

Verse 40
