Before calvary only the high priest was allowed to enter into the Holy of Holies in the temple (which represented the presence of God) and it was separated from the people by a very thick curtain .The first thing that happened immediately after Jesus yielded up his spirit was that this same curtain was torn into two from top to buttom declaring that all people shall have constant access to the father and the throne room through Jesus Christ.
Brazen Altar. Upon entering the gate into the Tabernacle area, one encountered the Brazen Altar, where he was to present his animal offering, and then hand the reigns over to the priests, who make atonement and intercession for him in the tent. The priests atoned for their sins through a sacrifice at the brazen altar, but they cleansed themselves at the laver before serving in the Holy Place, so that they would be pure and not die before a holy God.
The High Priest at the Table of Shewbread. In a biblical or Jewish context, shewbread refers to the cakes or loaves of bread which were always on a specially dedicated table, in the Temple in Jerusalem as an offering to God. An alternative, and more appropriate, translation would be presence bread, since the Bible requires that the bread be constantly in the presence of God (Exodus 25:30).
