I know this is one of the least popular books of the Bible. Reading the Ceremonial, Civil and Moral Law is not an easy read. But you are intelligent women – and with the help of the Holy Spirit, we are capable of reading and wrestling through God’s Word.
You are not walking this road alone – the Good Morning Girls community is a vibrant group of women who are serious about walking with God everyday.
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 God’s instructions to the priests on how to assist Israel in worship and living a holy life.
We will see ceremonial and civil laws that are not meant for us to practice in our lives today so we must be very careful with our applications of this book.
The key points we should take away from each chapter is the seriousness of our sin, the need for blood to cover over our sin, and the need for atonement.
All of the sacrificial elements of Leviticus point to the death of Jesus on the cross. When Jesus died he declared, “It is finished.” He was the final sacrifice.
