Leviticus (Bible #3)

To many students no book of the Bible may seem duller than Leviticus. In fact, Leviticus is extremely important for a proper understanding of ancient Israelite religion and worship. Many of its supposed arcane practices actually provide valuable insights into Israelite society and thinking, once they are properly understood in the light of modern studies in social anthropo ...more

Part of my READ THE BIBLE WITHIN A YEAR challenge.

Wish me luck, as I've got a long way to go!

This book is not the most thrilling of reads. I think I've just been reminded of why I never got beyond completing Exodus last time I attempted to read the whole Bible quite a few years ago!

The main focus of this book appears to be an almost endless list of laws, rules & regulations for both priests & the rest of humankind to abide by in order to remain alive & not be rejected by God.

A challenging yet eye-opening read.

I didn't get a good understanding of the different offerings. I understood everything else.

David Cochran Heath does a great job reading the Scriptures. I am greatly helped by listening to the audio while I follow along in the book of Leviticus. So many requirements, by so many men, so much detail, it is overwhelming...but Christ Jesus, this one man, fulfilled the law Himself, and sat down at the right hand of the Father. All these priestly laws and sacrifices, for all those generations, could not do what Jesus did. And, it took all those men, and all those sacrifices, and all the furn ...more

For the life of the flesh is in the blood; and I have given it to you for making atonement for your lives on the altar; for, as life, it is the blood that makes atonement.

After a strong lead the Torah tanks with three of the most boring books in the Bible: Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy. Having told enough stories, the priests sit down and instruct the Hebrews on what they should not do in order to keep the Lord’s favor. Rather than combining a review for all three books, I’ll do short revi

Dragging Read

In the best possibilities, the people of Israel escaped out of slavery in Egypt to a very well watched freedom. The moral is very strict about tattoos, homosexuality, see other people's nudity and various things involving animals in the region among copulate with them, to lend them, store them, steal them and eat them. The code of conduct imposed by to the children of Israel by God is very strict and full of nuances and the book of Leviticus is the continuation of Exodus in the spee

WrensReads Review:

Sidenote: The reason for such vague and short and "eh" words on each of these books, is because I wasn't challenging the study of the Bible when I read these. I was challenging myself to read the whole Bible in a year because I knew it would be discipline to keep at it daily. I do, however, plan to pick up a book and study what it is saying. Those will be longer reads and more notes.

So here is my review from my "Read the Bible in a Year" challenge. Usually just snippets of thou

The third book of the law written by Moses. I know I have said it several times before but each time I read this book I thank God for Jesus. The laws were detailed and numerous. Thank God that Jesus came and left only two laws: love God and love people.

Bless the name of Jesus!

This book of the Law explains that Jehovah God is HOLY and dwells in unapproachable light. God requires the absolute holiness of His people. God does not allow sin (or sinful people) near Him; yet, God is LOVE. For Him to stop loving would require Him to stop being Jehobvah God.

The Israelites were given rules and requirements so that they could have renewed contact with God. They were required to perform certain works.
The works they did required blood sacrifice to restore them to a reunion with

I'll be real: this is an excellent answer to insomnia with its long lists of strange [sometimes unsettling] laws and odd stories thrown in seemingly at random. But it's also the source of some important verses being discussed today, such as the marriage equality debate, and of some more important and more likely to be ignored verses such as how to save the poor and giving to the poor &c.

Fun fact: the phrase "eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth," has its source here [and likely in other places,

This book of the Bible was hard for me to get through. It contains a detailed description of the rules the Levites were to follow while worshipping God.
I thought the amount of description was fascinating, but a bit repetitive. I plan to read the entire Bible cover to cover, so I'm happy that I completed this part of the challenge.

WORDS FROM THE BOOK OF LEVITICUS:

The Lord called to Moses from the Tabernacle and said to him

“Give the following instructions to the entire community of Israel. You must be holy because I, the Lord your God, am holy.

BLESS THE NAME OF JESUS!

I did more study and looked up things online and I understand more about the sacrifices, offerings and celebrations than I did before.

Not my favorite book of the bible but informational and something to keep in mind when reading much of the bible is context of the time and the locations. A good read non the less. :)

Each time I read Leviticus, I am so grateful for the love that God show towards us in sending His son to die as an atonement for our sins. Bless the name of Jesus

Hard to read. Harder to love. A must if you want to understand the history of Judaism and Christianity. The book most likely to be used as a social weapon against others. Not cool.
