Yoel ben Shlomo – Light of the Prophets – 1 Samuel 4:1-5:12

Did Israel attempt to use God like a magic genie? Why did the Philistines refer to “mighty gods” in 1 Samuel 4:8? How did Pinchas’ wife give birth and what is the meaning of the name “Ychavod”? Who was the Philistine god Dagon? What exactly was the plague of tumors?

    Thank you for addressing my question, but obviously I did not make myself clear. I remember Yoel calling it a temple. My question was what happened to the Mishkan? After all that went on in Shemot and Vayikra concerning the Mishkan it is seldom mention after the b’nei Yisrael entered the land.

  3. Rick Winkler says

    PS Yoel addressed in part of what happened to the Mishkan:

    1. “Now, there is a possibility that they built a stone structure, but inside they used the original walls. But they put a stone structure to protect them.”

    2. “There is a midrash that says that when King Solomon built the tabernacle (Yoel probably meant to say Temple) he put away the tabernacle of Moses.”

    But, I repeat, it is interesting that so much emphasis was given to the Mishkan in the Torah, but it is rarely referred to thereafter.
