The central chapter of Leviticus 16 Day of Atonement is explained in Hebrews 9; Hebrews 10 as fulfilled by the work of Christ on Calvary. The temple in Jerusalem is not mentioned whereas the tabernacle is well mentioned. The tabernacle in Hebrews means either the tent of meeting in the wilderness Hebrews ; Hebrews or in a pictorial way the Jewish order of service Hebrews ; Hebrews In Hebrews ; Hebrews the word tabernacle however means the heavenly sanctuary.
