The Lord is the ultimate vessel of honor. The brass bowls represent judgment until they are filled with Jesus' blood and water. In light of His sacrifice, they now represent mercy towards sinful man. The two brass mountains likely point to Mount Sinai and Mount Ararat. At the brass laver, the priests wash their hands and feet. In Christ, believers are baptized in water to represent being buried with Him. When one comes up from the water, this represents being resurrected with Jesus.
