The general usage of the tabernacle in the Bible is the tent where Moses kept the ark of the covenant; it was a holy and revered place.
Later, the tabernacle was effectively replaced with the temple, built by King Solomon.
In a more general sense, a tabernacle is any holy place.
Key verse about Tabernacle: “Then have them make a sanctuary for me, and I will dwell among them. Make this tabernacle and all its furnishings exactly like the pattern I will show you. (Exodus 25:8-9, NIV)
