Hi Yigal,

You may already be aware of this, but there are several commentators who
have argued in recent years that the Israelites' *mishkanot* are referred
to as such precisely because of their relationship to Yahweh's *mishkan*,
i.e., they are called *mishkanot* because they surround the *mishkan*.  See
the discussion in G. K. Beale, *The Temple and the Church's Mission*,
123-26; and T. Stordalen, *Echoes of Eden*, 443.

Blessings,

Jerry
