You and the Life, and the Mishkan
BY JONAH DOCTURA | 2017
Tabernacle means “tent,” “place of dwelling” or “sanctuary.” It was a sacred place where G-D chose to meet His people, the Israelites, during the 40 years they wandered in the desert under Moses’ leadership. It was the place where the leaders and people came together to worship and offer sacrifices.
It was a mobile tent with portable furniture that the people traveled with and set up wherever they pitched camp. The tabernacle would be in the center of the camp, and the 12 tribes of Israel would set up their tents around it according to tribe. The instruction on how to build the tabernacle was first given to Moses in the wilderness, who then gave the orders to the Israelites. “…make a sanctuary for me, and I will dwell among them.” (Exodus 25:8)
In this study we will understand the Tabernacle as a highly symbolic work of a spiritual truth.

As a believers, we need to understand the Torah/Tanakh is the foundation of the New Testament. Yeshua the Messiah is the fulfillment of prophecies of the Law and the Prophets. The Messiah's death and the establishment of a New Covenant is a chief focus of the Tanakh.
The Messiah would come, suffer and die for the sins of the world; through the Messiah's death, G-D would establish a New Covenant. The New Covenant would establish an eternal relationship between G-D and fallen humanity.
The New Testament Canon confirms and testifies to the life of Yeshua the Messiah, who established the New Covenant in accordance to the Old Testament canon.
"Yeshua was born, grew up and spent His ministry among people who knew Scripture by memory, who debated its application with enthusiasm, and who love G-D with all their hearts, souls and might." -Bro. Jonah Doctura, Elder-
