This week's study is meant to cover the discussion of the Tabernacle as a type of the church as is taught in Hebrews 9:1-15. We have decided to post Brother Jerry Dickinson's exceptional sermon rather than trying to reinvent the wheel and creating an inferior wheel at that! We want to thank ChristianLandmark.com for making the video available and we hope you will check out their other articles, materials, and videos.
A story that has always been a favorite among the Lord's people contains much more than first meets the eye. Open up your Bible and follow along as Brother George Battey unfolds many truths that have oft been missed.

Many Christians today fail to appreciate the benefit the Old Testament can bring to their daily walk. The Old Testament is often looked upon as a collection of interesting stories, and Israel is viewed as a forgotten people. Yet many of the New Testament writers base their teaching on an understanding of the Old Law and its people. To fail to study and appreciate the Old Covenant and people of God is to rob one’s self of important insights into the New Covenant and the New Kingdom. One such insight is provided by God in the parallel He establishes between physical Israel and spiritual Israel (the church).
Matthew introduces our Savior to us and his Jewish audience by giving the ancestral heritage of the Lord. There are several key teachings within this list of names that often go unnoticed and unlearned. Never underestimate the import role the genealogies served in Matthew’s day, nor the lessons that can be learned from them today. Consider the following points:
The twenty-fifth chapter of the Book of 1 Samuel starts off with a sad scene: Samuel, prophet of the Lord, had died in Ramah. Samuel’s death marked the closing of an era, and brought with it shadows of gloom. Israel’s request for a king had brought great turmoil to the land and now the prophet of the Lord was no longer present to help face the issues of the day. Thus Israel gathered together to mourn. The passing of Samuel was remembered with sorrow and the children of God were filled with heavy hearts.
