Holiness of God
for Today's Study: Book of Leviticus
Narrative: This book was given
to us to emphasize the holiness
(also see time line in the classroom): about 1400 B. C.
The Bible Story (Leviticus):
The various offerings of the Levites of Israel.
The burnt offering--Leviticus 1
The meal offering--chapter 2
The peace offering--chapter 3.
The sin offering, chapter 4. Also see Isaiah 53 for the prophecy of how Jesus
would become the sin offering of the world.
Is sin serious? Serious enough for God to die over.
Offerings for thoughtless or ignorant sins. Man has always been accountable
for sin, whether he was a student of the Bible or not. Some misconstrue Acts
17: 30 to mean that that God winked at sin in the Old Testament times. Romans
2: 11-16 says He did not--He just judged it differently. Restitutive
offerings for deceitful sin--Leviticus 6.
repentance many times involves restitution--not just saying "I'm sorry."
The importance of true worship. Nadab
and Abihu, Leviticus 10. How
casual should we be about worship today? What does it really mean to worship?
Blood, sexual morality, social order.
These are basic to our understanding
of right and wrong.
Laws about blood (17: 10-16)
Laws about sexual morality (Leviticus
Laws about social order (Leviticus 19).
Laws forbidding idolatry. (Leviticus 20).
Rules for priests (Leviticus 21-24:9).
A blasphemer stoned (Leviticus 24: 10-23).
Sabbatical years, Jubilee (chapter 25).
Rewards for obedience, punishments for disobedience (chapters 26 & 27).
hope that by visiting this website, you have been blessed.
