From the Trivia Files Contest: Eschatology

The book of Revelation opens with the image of seven lampstands, each representing one of the seven churches.  In the letter to the church at Ephesus, Christ warns, "You have persevered and have endured hardships for my name, and have not grown weary.  Yet I hold this against you: You have forsaken your first love.  Remember the height from which you have fallen! Repent and do the things you did at first. If you do not repent, I will come to you and remove your lampstand from its place" (Revelation 2: 3-5 NIV).

My question for today:

What is the traditional, symbolic meaning of the lampstand in the Bible (both Old and New Testaments)?
