Waiyikra - And He called

16 And the remainder thereof shall Aaron and his sons eat: with unleavened bread shall it be eaten in the holy place; in the court of the tabernacle of the congregation they shall eat it.

...the Tabernacle of God's presence in Israel did not stand exposed in the camp. It could not. It was surrounded by a walled court, a wall of 60 pillars and linen curtains, about 100 feet by 200 feet.

The word for court means enclosed or surrounded:

"A garden enclosed is my sister, my spouse"-the same symbolism under a different form.

This Court was many things. First, it was a barrier. Secondly, a protection. Thirdly, a separation, a line of demarcation. And finally, a way of approach, for it led around to the gate.

The Court hanging was of fine linen, which stands for righteousness. A separating wall of righteousness is the only way that God could be present in the camp. It was a barrier of righteousness, and yet it led around to a merciful gate of entrance. God is a wall of protection and righteousness. Christ is the gate of mercy and entrance, and we note that there is only one gate to the Court, only one way in.
