Understanding and Preaching Leviticus (OT789-6i/OT789-4i)
2017 October Postgraduate Unit
While Leviticus is the first book of the Bible Jewish children are introduced to, it is generally the last book that Christians read. That is unfortunate, for Leviticus sits at the structural and theological heart of the Pentateuch and contains the most systematic treatments in Scripture of crucial themes such as atonement, sacrifice, Sabbath rest, and living in the presence of God. Not surprisingly, therefore, understanding Leviticus proves essential for reading not only the Old Testament, but the New Testament too. Indeed, Jesus and the New Testament writers assumed hearers and readers were familiar with this book.
Accordingly, this unit will explore this oft-neglected book through detailed exegesis of selected passages and by considering its theological contribution. It will also suggest how Leviticus may be taught engagingly in the local church, with an eye to aiding pastors and Christian workers as they understand and teach the whole counsel of God.
