Read: 1 Kings 7; 2 Chronicles 4
Marked: 2 Chronicles 4:7, And he made ten lampstands of gold according to their design, and set [them] in the temple, five on the right side and five on the left.
There were no windows in the temple. The only light filling the entire interior came from the lamps which were placed five to a side. The lamps lit the ten tables on which were placed loaves of bread.
Jesus is the light of the world (John 8:12; 12:46) and the bread of life (John 6:33) and His light has come that we might have fellowship with God. What better way to enjoy fellowship than to break bread together.
Light is a revealer and God’s light reveals the darkness in our hearts. But God’s light is not the light of condemnation, but rather the light of fellowship and the light of truth.
