Candlestick for the Tabernacle

Exodus 25:31 "And thou shalt make a candlestick of pure gold: of beaten work shall the candlestick be made: his shaft and his branches, his bowls, his knobs and his flowers, shall be of the same."

I believe this golden candlestick represents Christ.

It consisted of:
-7 places for candles called bowels(shaped like almonds)
-6 branches (three on either side of the center candle)

The shaft under the center candle was to have three branches on either side.

According to my comprehensive bible helps:

-location: left side of one entering holy place opposite shewbread table
-size: five feet high
3 1/2 across
made of: 1 talent of gold

It was to be all of one piece. The tongs and snuffdishes were of gold v38.

Suggested reading Revelation 1-2, Revelation 21:23

Psalm 4:6 "There be many that say, Who will show us any good? Lord, lift thou up the light of thy countenance upon us."
