Michael Heiser - Leviticus Chapters 19-27 (Part 3)

Introduction to the Book of Leviticus

Leviticus is a challenging book, both for new Christians and casual Bible readers. Gone are the fascinating characters and suspenseful stories of Genesis. Gone are the epic Hollywood plagues and miracles found in Exodus.

Instead, the book of Leviticus contains a meticulous and often tedious list of rules and regulations. Yet, if understood properly, the book supplies readers with rich wisdom and practical instruction.

Leviticus opens with the people of God camped at the foot of Mount Sinai after being delivered from slavery in Egypt. The glory of the Lord has filled the wilderness tabernacle and now God tells Moses to teach the people and the priests concerning sacrifices, offerings, feasts, celebrations, and holy days.

Thus, Leviticus is best explained as a guidebook for instructing God's people about holy living and worship. Everything from sexual conduct to the handling of food, to instructions for worship and religious celebrations, is covered in detail in the book of Leviticus. This is because all aspects of our lives--moral, physical, and spiritual--are important to God..'" from the article: Introduction to the Book of Leviticus
