365 Leviticus

Standard

Dear 365 Bible Readers,

We are four weeks into the Read Through The Bible in a Year project, long enough to have finished Genesis and Exodus and to have made Bible reading a daily habit!  Congratulations!!

Now, please don’t get lost and give up in Leviticus… we’re only reading there for 10 days and I know you can do it!  We have posted new information on the webpage for Leviticus, so have a look at the helpful charts on the various offerings, sacrifices, and festivals.

When you read the Bible, careful attention to detail is usually the key to understanding.  In Leviticus, however, you will get more from looking at the big picture.  Some laws we simply do not understand.  But Leviticus as a whole reveals a great deal about the character of God, and what kind of people God wanted the Israelites to be.

The theme verse is Leviticus 19:2 “BE HOLY because I, the Lord your God, am HOLY.”

The book is divided into two parts:

The WORSHIP of God – SACRIFICE – chapters 1-16

The WALK of His People – SEPARATION – Chapters 17-27

As you read keep asking yourself:

What is revealed about the character of God in this chapter?  And,

How would these laws have made Israel different from other people, and why were those differences important to God?

I look forward to discussing Leviticus with you, in the halls and classrooms of church, and also on our Facebook page!  Also, did you know that you can listen to the Bible using a website like BibleGateway.com or the YouVersion app on a smart device?  Do whatever works for you!

  1. Thank you so much for this blog and the resources you share! You’ve helped me immensely with my own learning but also with leading classes. Quick question…what is the resource you’re using for the summaries of Gen-Deut that has the header Bible Overview-Old Testament?

    • That particular chart comes from The Rose Book of Bible Charts, Maps, & Timelines by Rose Publishing. That book is a wonderful resource that I used extensively when I taught through the Old Testament last year.
