Leviticus Introduction

Leviticus
LeviticusSteve Gregg

Leviticus may seem tedious and irrelevant, but Steve Gregg highlights the importance of understanding God's character and the significance of the laws given in this book. While the book addresses the priesthood, it also addresses the people and their conduct. The concept of holiness and cleanliness is emphasized, with the word "clean" and its derivatives appearing 186 times in Leviticus. Although some of the laws described may not apply today, they can still teach us about the magnitude of the actions penalized and our need for grace and forgiveness.
