Rabbi Schneider — The Tabernacle
Shalom, yedidim. That's Hebrew for beloved ones. God bless you today. Thank you for tuning in to this edition of Discovering The Jewish Jesus. We are launching out on a brand new series today that I'm tall calling simply The Tabernacle.
I've taught on the tabernacle before, but I believe that the Lord has particularly anointed me to teach on the tabernacle, which is in Hebrew called the mishkan and its application for us today as New Testament believers following Yeshua, Jesus the Messiah.
So we're going to really take our time during this study. We're going to look at how Messiah Yeshua fulfills all the functioning and all the offerings and all the different pieces of furniture that were in the tabernacle.
See, the Bible tells us in the book of Hebrews chapter number 9 verse 23 and 24 that the tabernacle, beloved, was a copy of heavenly things and of the work of Messiah Jesus.
So we're going to be looking at how Messiah Jesus fulfills the different rites that the priests went through as they were serving in the tabernacle.
We'll also be looking at how the principles in the tabernacle, for example, the priests would come daily to the brass laver, where they would cleanse there with water before they would serve. We're going to look at how does that speak to us today as New Testament believers.
We're going to take all the different pieces of furniture in the tabernacle and then we're going to show how they're applicable for you in your walk today as you're following Messiah Jesus.
We're also going to get into the priestly garb and what some of the colors represent and make some application again for our lives today. And we'll even have time to look at the offerings that were offered in the tabernacle by the high priest, beloved, and the rest of the priesthood in ancient Israel.
