Who am I sharing this? The word "Judah" is in my sunday school lesson for 10-21-07. I do not know how at this time my sunday school lesson and this go together at this time.
A Short Summary from "A Comprehensive & Critical Description of the Israelitish Tabernacle & Its Sacred Furniture. Together With An Account of The Priesthood & The Worship & Sacrifices of The Israelites."
The Tabernacle was a symbol of the visible church of God on earth. David in the Book of Psalms refers to the Tabernacle & its worship.
The First Tabernacle -- was doubtless the dwelling, or headquarters of Moses, & the place where the public business of the nation was transacted. And it came to pass, when Moses went out unto the Tabernacle, that all the people rose up, & stood every man at his tent door, & looked after Moses until he was gone into the Tabernacle.
An exact pattern of the whole structure of the Tabernacle & all its appointments was shown to Moses by God in Mount Sinai, & he was commanded to entrust, the executing the mechanical part of the work to Bezaleel, of the tribe of Judah, & Aholiab, of the tribe of Dan, who were the most skillful workmen in the nation.
The Court -- The appearance of the Court, the arrangement of the posts & walls, the open entrance with its curtains of blue, purple, & scarlet.
The Tabernacle -- When the nation was on a march, it moved in advance of the host, pointing the way; but when a halt was made, it settled down over the Tabernacle, resting, as it believed, over the Ark.
The Altar of Burnt Offering -- was the instrument used for the purpose of reconciling man with his Maker. Christ was made sin for us, who knew no sin, that we might be made the righteousness of God in HIM.

Amazon.com sells a workbook titled -- "Life Principles For Worship From the Tabernacle by Wayne Barber, Eddie Rasnake, Richard Shepherd" for those that might be interested. I also have the workbook for in 2003 my home church did a study.
Maybe in 2008 I will do some series of teaching if the opportunity arise from "A Comprehensive & Critical Description of the Israelitish Tabernacle & Its Sacred Furniture. Together With An Account of The Priesthood & The Worship & Sacrifices of The Israelites."
