who are the 24 elders ?
The furniture in the Holy Place and the Holy of Holies in the Tabernacle represent that which is actually in Heaven.
In John's vision in Heaven we see everything that is represented by the furniture apart from the twelve cakes of showbread.
The twelve baked loaves represented the twelve tribes of Israel before God.
12 is the number of government which is why another had to be chosen to replace Judas.
It seems sensible to deduce that the 24 Elders represent God's people throughout the ages under both the old and new covenants.

Seems to make sense, but where is the Scriptural support?
