We all possess a longing for permanence and belonging in a world that prevents them because of the fall. The Israelites experienced such a craving for permanence. One of the ways the Lord brought it to His unsettled pilgrim people was not just through the tabernacle, but also its courtyard. In this lesson, Rev. Hyde explores how the courtyard could provide the Israelites with what they were looking for in their wanderings. It also considers how we, as the new covenant people in Christ, leave our transient world behind to find permanence in public worship.
