Part of The Bible Is Not Chim series, this talk is to help participants understand the context and purpose of the book of Leviticus, and how it is relevant to us today.
The Book of Leviticus has long been given a bad reputation. Among other things, it has been called out-of-date, boring, irrelevant and difficult to read. But that cannot be true because all scripture is inspired by God and useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training for righteousness. Indeed reading the Book of Leviticus is critical for us modern Christians if we are to make godliness a way of life.
The Book of Leviticus sits in the middle of the Torah- the first 5 books of the Jewish bible. Together they tell an unfolding story of the relationship between God and His chosen people. Leviticus occupies a pivotal point in this story by providing the standards against which we must conduct ourselves in this relationship. It is in this context that we must read Leviticus in order to fully understand it and apply it.
This talk is conducted in a simple and easy to follow style, with clear visuals and explanations to help you understand the book. But more than that, it will give you a fresh perspective of our amazing God and inspire you to Be Holy, because He is Holy.
