Be Holy For I Am Holy – The Book of Leviticus
Most Christians struggle to read through the Book of Leviticus. Many find it boring. Those who bravely plough through it find it difficult and complex.
What do the rituals mean? What significance or relevance could they have for Christians today since Christ has fulfilled the Law by His once-and-for-all sacrificial death on the cross? Aren’t some of the laws outdated? Do they not spell “legalism” rather than “grace”? How could a God of love prescribe such severe laws? With such questions plaguing us, it is no wonder that we do not find an affinity with Leviticus.
This seminar seeks to demonstrate what an exciting and relevant book Leviticus is, by helping you to discover
- Where Leviticus fits in the biblical narrative of God’s redemptive plan;
- What is its unitive theme and central message;
- How it is structured;
- What do the rituals and laws teach us about certain significant theological themes in the book; and
- How we are to read and understand its relevance today in light of what Christ has achieved on the cross?
