Bezalel, Tabernacle Artist

Credenda, Volume #8, Number 2, p. 2.

The Lord told Bezalel, the artist of the Tabernacle, to make the garments of the high priest, with their dazzling gems and elaborate design, "for glory and for beauty" (Exodus 28:2 KJV). God's purpose for these particular works of Bezalel suggests a purpose for all of the arts--to glorify God and to manifest beauty. - Gene Edward Veith
