A traveling replica of an ancient sanctuary built by the Hebrews has made its way to Kern County for the first time.
The Messiah’s Mansion Tour is in town now through Sunday.
The exhibit tells the story of the tabernacle described in the book of Exodus, built by the Hebrews near Egypt thousands of years ago.
Local organizer Valerie Anglen says the symbols used in the this Old Testament exhibit link to the gospel stories of Christ.
“People are always really surprised to learn that every aspect of the sanctuary points to Jesus Christ, and it is the gospel in symbol,” she said.
The free exhibit has been traveling the world since 2003.
It’s open every day through Sunday from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m.
