“This is he, that was in the church in the wilderness with the angel which spake to him in the mount Sina, and with our fathers: who received the lively oracles to give unto us:”
King James Version (KJV)

As Saul held the coats, these men held the self- righteousness by stones and aimed them at Stephen in a very false hope that the Law would be satisfied outside of the Chosen One whom Stephen clearly knew.

The "church" is the people. They were referred to as the "congregation" in the old testament. The tabernacle or temple of the Lord is the physical location where they worshiped.

Acts Chapter 7: 35 This Moses whom they refused, saying, Who made thee a ruler and a judge the same did God send [to be] a ruler and a deliverer by the hand of the angel which appeared to him in the bush.
36 He brought them out, after that he had shewed wonders and signs in the land of Egypt, and in the Red sea, and in the wilderness forty years.
37 This is that Moses, which said unto the children of Israel, A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear.
38 This is he, that was in the church in the wilderness with the angel which spake to him in the mount Sina, and [with] our fathers: (this is saying the CHURCH was with Moses)

I have alway been confused with this verse in the KJB;
Acts 7:38 This is he, that was in the church in the wilderness with the angel which spake to him in the mount Sina, and with our fathers: who received the lively oracles to give unto us:r
It reads, "a church in the wilderness!" There were no buildings that people called a "church" when Acts was written. Also, many believe the KJV is the only reliable translation. Do you think our Father's Holy word would have another man's name on it Acts 17:24-25 reads in the KJV, 4 "God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands;
25 Neither is worshipped with men"

From this text it is clear that the church did not begin in the book of acts. The word within itself means called out ones. The Jews were called out of bondage to be used by God to enlighten the world about the one true God. In the church in the wilderness Jesus was hidden in signs, symbols and prophecies. In the church in the book of Acts, which is the same church in the wilderness Christ is not hidden! He is reveal for all to see, in the church in the wilderness he is hidden in the lambs that were slain to atone for the sins of God's people but in the new church he is reveal on the cross being slain so his blood can atone for the sins of the world. The ten commandments which is the express will of God for all who would be apart of his kingdom was given to the church! The one in the wilderness which also governs the revealed church today!
