But Christ came as High Priest of the good things to come, with the greater and more perfect (teleios) tabernacle not made with hands, that is, not of this creation.  Not with the blood of goats and calves, but with His own blood He entered the Most Holy Place once for all, having obtained eternal redemption.  (Hebrews 9:11-12) 

The tabernacle of the New Testament in heaven is said to be more complete than the tabernacle which Moses built, for the new has the out-poured blood of Christ.  This is for us perfection.  Through the instrumentality of Jesus our Savior, the High Priest Himself, found and procured eternal redemption for us.  This redemption is complete, is perfect, because by His own blood Christ liberated us from sin’s penalty through the ransom money paid for a slave of sin on the slave market in the tabernacle in heaven, where the transaction of our souls took place.
