Roadmap to the Bible - Week 4

Book of Leviticus

The book of Leviticus picks up right where Exodus left off after Moses assembles the tabernacle and dives deeper into the inauguration ceremony briefly alluded to in Exodus chap. 40 (Beginning in the Leviticus 8). Before that, we are introduced to more priestly laws regarding the 5 different sacrificial offerings performed at the Sacrificial Altar (1-7).  In Chap. 11-16 we are introduced to more priestly laws on Purity and wrap up with Leviticus with the Holiness Code, our 4th and last collection of laws given at Mt. Sinai, based on ethical commandments which Israelites must reflect to emulate God’s holiness.
