oa Conspectus : The Journal of the South African Theological Seminary - Ministering in the Tabernacle : spatiality and the Christology of Hebrews

Volume 1, Issue 03
  • ISSN : 1996-8167



Two of the perplexing features of Hebrews, its Christological comparisons and the spatial emphases are intertwined. Application of appropriate sociological and literary theories in Spatiality to examine the expositions in the epistle will demonstrate that the author used the spaces of the Pentateuchal wilderness camp and tabernacle as his heuristic and typological tool for the Christological expositions. This served as the primary vehicle for channelling his pastoral teaching aimed at addressing the problems of social liminality and spiritual malaise of the congregation. The author's approach should serve as template for our understanding and applications of the theology of the tabernacle.
