The Book of
Leviticus
Introduction: The third book of Moses (and the Bible) is the book called Leviticus.
Genesis showed the development of Israel as a nation. Exodus chronicled how by the
power of the Almighty, Israel was delivered from the bondage of Egypt to go to the
land of promise. Leviticus shows the relation of Israel to God in laws and holy days
God required of the nation of Israel, which set them apart from all other People.
…Leviticus is a unique book. The purpose is primarily to provide a way by which sinful
man might approach and continue in fellowship with a sinless God. The book of
Leviticus shows the people how to become holy and how to remain holy. …

The laws of Leviticus separate Israel from all other nations. These laws make her
different – hold her aloof from, and above, the corrupting influences of the ungodly
people surrounding her. These laws are arranged as systematically as the nature of
its contents allow. Any repetition is purely intentional and necessary for the context to
be fully understood.

Leviticus has been rightly called the gospel of the Old Testament. It is the gospel in
the sense that it typifies the perfect Lamb of God who was to come and take away all
sin from the soul – thus the good news. The rituals of the sacrifices regulated by the
laws of God are the great atonement of Christ foreshadowed and typified. Leviticus
has been called a picture book in that every sacrifice offered according to the laws
upon its pages was a picture pointing toward “the Lamb of God that taketh away the
sin of the world.” It is to this book that we need to come to enrich our background that
we might find a fully understanding of our own “so great salvation.” [GETTING
ACQUAINTED WITH THE OLD TESTAMENT; VOL. 1; Pledge Publications; 1970; pp.
242,243]

Ye shall therefore keep all my statutes, and all my judgments, and do them: that
the land, whither I bring you to dwell therein, spue you not out. And ye shall not
walk in the manners of the nation, which I cast out before you: for they
committed all these things, and therefore I abhorred them. But I have said unto
you, Ye shall inherit their land, and I will give it unto you to possess it, a land that
floweth with milk and honey: I am the LORD your God, which have separated you
from other people. Ye shall therefore put difference between clean beasts and
unclean, and between unclean fowls and clean: and ye shall not make your
souls abominable by beast, or by fowl, or by any manner of living thing that
creepeth on the ground, which I have separated from you as unclean. And ye
shall be holy unto me: for I the LORD am holy, and have severed you from other
people, that ye should be mine. (Leviticus 20:22-26 KJV)

These are the statutes and judgments and laws, which the LORD made between
him and the children of Israel in mount Sinai by the hand of Moses. (Leviticus 26:
46 KJV)
