Leviticus receives its name from the Septuagint (the pre-Christian Greek translation of the Old Testament) and means "concerning the Levites" (the priests of Israel). It serves as a manual of regulations enabling the holy King to set up his earthly throne among the people of his kingdom. It explains how they are to be his holy people and to worship him in a holy manner.

  • The book of Numbers completes the Revelation at Mt. Sinai story arc and records the Israelites journeying from Mt. Sinai to the Plains of Moab near the Jordan River, just outside the Canaanite city of Jericho.
