Eye for an Eye or Turn the Other Cheek? {Leviticus 24}

Eye for an eye or turn the other cheek

As we near the end of our study in Leviticus we find a familiar phrase… “An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth” Let’s look at this phrase in its context. Leviticus 24:17-21 says: “Whoever takes a human life shall surely be put to death. Whoever takes an animal’s life shall make it good, life for life. If anyone injures his neighbor, as he has done it shall be done to him, fracture for fracture, eye for eye, tooth for tooth; whatever injury he has given a person shall be given to him. Whoever kills an animal […]

5 Ways to Pursue Holiness in a World that Minimizes Sin {Leviticus 11-15}

5 Ways to pursue holiness

Last Friday, we discussed 5 Ways to Exalt God as Holy in a Culture that Treats God Casually. Today we want to look at 5 Ways to Pursue Holiness in a World that Minimizes Sin. God says in Leviticus 11:44: “For I am the Lord your God. Consecrate yourselves therefore, and be holy, for I am holy.” Then in the New Testament  – Leviticus is quoted in 1 Peter 1:16:  “You shall be holy, for I am holy.” The command to be holy is a command not just for the Israelites in Leviticus but for us today. What does it […]

Exalt God as Holy in a Culture that Considers Him Casually {Leviticus 10}

Exalt God as Holy

We live in a culture that considers God and His word – casually. Let’s take a look at Leviticus 9 and 10 and see how God responds to two men who did the same. It was a huge day.  Aaron had done all the Lord commanded and made an offering before the Lord that had been accepted.  Leviticus 9:23,24 says: The glory of the Lord appeared to all the people and the fire, from the Lord, consumed the offering.  When all the people saw it, they shouted and fell on their faces!  Awesome!   ************ Then as Leviticus 10 begins, […]

Welcome back to Week 2 in the Book of Leviticus. You did it! You completed week 1 and it wasn’t that hard right? Remember, the title “Leviticus” means, matters of the Levites.  The Tribe of Levi (also known as Levites) were the priestly tribe of Israel. Leviticus is God’s instructions to the priests on how to assist Israel in worship and living a holy life. Just a reminder, we will see ceremonial and civil laws that are not meant for us to practice in our lives so we must be very careful with our applications of this book.  The key points we […]

When Life Knocks You Down. Get Up! {Leviticus 1-5}

When Life Knocks You Down Get Up

When I was a child, one of our favorite family dinners was my mom’s BBQ Beef Stew.  I remember my dad would come through the door from work and say the smell made his mouth water.  It was that good!  I always make mine in the crock pot and as it cooks all day – the house is filled with this amazing aroma. What is your favorite smell?  Perhaps a rose or fresh baked bread, pine trees, a camp fire or your husband’s cologne. In Leviticus chapters 1-5,  we see this phrase repeated over and over in every chapter: “it […]

Introduction to Leviticus {Resources for Chapters 1-5}

1 Leviticus It's all about worship

Welcome to the Introduction of the Book of Leviticus. This is going to be a challenging book to study but we cannot skip it. For those who were with us for our study in the book of Exodus, you may well remember reading chapter after chapter after chapter of God’s commands to Israel on how to build the tabernacle. Leviticus picks up right where the book of Exodus ended, so chronologically, we must do Leviticus next. The title “Leviticus” means, matters of the Levites.  The Tribe of Levi (also known as Levites) were the priestly tribe of Israel. Leviticus is […]
