Overview

This new Preaching the Word commentary reveals how the
regulations detailed in Leviticus point to the perfection and
fulfillment of Christ in the New Testament age.


It is the message that God spoke to his people through Moses as
they prepared to depart for the Promised Land. It details
regulations for holy living and sacrificial worship in Old
Testament Israel. But does Leviticus have anything to say to
Christians today?


Knowing that readers of the Bible often get hung up on the
seeming irrelevance of Leviticus, Kenneth Mathews counters with
this insightful Preaching the Word commentary. His
chapter-by-chapter analysis reveals much about not only the demands
of a holy God but about the kind of relationship he wants with his
people and his standards for worship in any age.


As Mathews illuminates the significance of Israel's sacrificial
system and symbols, he draws parallel after parallel to Jesus as
their perfect fulfillment. His commentary will train pastors,
teachers, and serious readers in how Leviticus foreshadows the
saving work of Jesus, and the many ways God made accommodation for
human sin through Christ.

What People Are Saying

From the Publisher

"Dr. Kenneth Mathews is a superb student of the Holy Scriptures who always teaches the Bible with a view toward its proclamation. In this lively exposition, he shows us that Leviticus, though neglected today in many pulpits, is not only theologically seminal but also eminently preachable. A great contribution to this series!"
Timothy George, Founding Dean, Beeson Divinity School; General Editor, Reformation Commentary on Scripture

"Ken Mathews is a respected scholar and a faithful expositor. Both of these competencies are reflected in this work on Leviticus. Mathews brings to life the marvelous truths of a book that intimidates and therefore causes far too many to ignore it. This is a welcomed addition to this outstanding series. Read it and be blessed. Use it and bless your people."
Daniel L. Akin, President, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary

"An illuminating treatment! Kenneth A. Mathews is among the few scholars who know how to discuss the legal texts of the Old Testament with appreciated aliveness, and that aliveness is vividly evident in his treating of the holiness theme in Leviticus. His new commentary illumines the text for preaching the gospel against the backdrop of Old Testament rituals and hopes. An excellent study!"
James Earl Massey, Dean Emeritus and Distinguished Professor-at-large, Anderson University School of Theology

"Dr. Mathews shows something of what Jesus meant when he said of Moses, 'He wrote about me' (John 4:46). He demonstrates that Leviticus is a book that foreshadows the riches of Christ the fulfiller. The preacher will find much help in this commentary for the task of showing that Leviticus is not to be dismissed as dull, legal prescription for ancient Israel, but is arresting, interesting, and relevant to Christian living."
Graeme Goldsworthy, Former Lecturer in Old Testament, Biblical Theology, and Hermeneutics, Moore Theological College

    Initially Good

    I am enjoying this book thus far. The one thing that seems to be getting in the way are the unfinished sentences in the beginning of the book. In one instance the writer starts a thought and it just stops. Then there is a new paragraph. In another instance when this happens it seems the dropped thought is incorporated into the next paragraph. It is as if editing was started and then not completed. Other than those annoyances, I am enjoying the book.
