To Dwell in Our Midst

A Study of the Tabernacle and How It
Points Us to Jesus

And let them make me a sanctuary, that I may dwell in their midst.
– Exodus 25:8

Why study this ancient tent? What does knowing the Tabernacle have to do with our faith on this side of the cross? Everything. From Creation, God’s desire was to dwell in the midst of His people. When sin entered the world, we were thrust from His dwelling place for our own protection. Unholy cannot stand in the presence of holy and live. But God had a plan.

In the middle of the wilderness, God gives Moses a way for God Himself to dwell in the midst of His people: the Tabernacle. He gives specific instructions and commands Moses to make everything exactly as God has shown him. This tent is not merely ritual or history or good information. It’s essential to understanding our salvation. Our detailed and deliberate God gave us the Tabernacle because one day, He would give us Jesus.

This 8-week study traces the steps through the Tabernacle. It’s not ritual; it’s a doorway. It’s an invitation into a relationship with our Holy God. Join us as we discover God’s plan for salvation and relationship through Jesus Christ. Jesus is the fulfillment of the Tabernacle that enables us to dwell in the midst of the presence of God and for His presence to dwell in our midst. Every day.

Ratings and Reviews

Rating: 5 out of 5.

The symbolism is so amazing and beautiful. I am so glad I went through this study. I know anytime I spend in God’s Word is not wasted, and this study was no exception. God is intentional and this study helped me see that. To see that there was a specific reason behind each instruction and item is encouraging. It gives us a glimpse of His care and attention to details. Inductive Bible study is still new to me but I love that God is as the center of it. I can see the way I approached Bible study in the past was self-centered. God centered is so much better!

“For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven
    and do not return there but water the earth,
making it bring forth and sprout,
    giving seed to the sower and bread to the eater,
so shall my word be that goes out from my mouth;
    it shall not return to me empty,
but it shall accomplish that which I purpose,
    and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it.”
Isaiah 55:10-11

Stories from the Wilderness
A Study of the Israelites’ Journey from Egypt to the Promised Land

The wilderness. It is a place that feels hard, empty, lifeless and pathless, and it often leaves us with questions about who God is. But while we see a place that is worthless, confusing, and chaotic, God sees a place to display His power. Time and time again throughout Scripture, God takes the worthless, seemingly wasteful, confusing, chaotic, and empty places and uses them as a backdrop to prove His character, draw us in, and display His glory.

Way Maker
An Advent Study Through the Book of Hebrews

Jesus’ coming was more than giving us forgiveness of sins or to part the way before us. He came to part the divide between God and us, between us and heaven. Jesus is our Way Maker, and no other book gives us a more comprehensive view of Jesus this way than the book of Hebrews.

Light & Life: A Study of Psalm 119

We hear it all the time: we need to read the Bible every day. But why is it so important that we know, understand, and apply this ancient book to our lives today? What’s in it for us??

In Psalm 119, we see over and over that God’s Word brings life, and it’s a light to guide us. These 176 verses give us the most comprehensive look at the power and benefits provided to us in Scripture, and the character of the One who spoke the Word into existence. This is not power that can be mustered up in our own human strength or learned from reading any other book. It is a power that can only come from God Himself. If we truly knew the power the Word of God has in our lives, we wouldn’t be able to put it down.
