The book of Leviticus is an important book for many reasons. It gives us a better appreciation of what the Lord Jesus came to do for us. The sacrifices of the Old Testament looked forward symbolically to the sacrificial work of Christ on the cross. Through these Old Testament sacrifices we learn more about the work of the Lord Jesus.
Secondly, the laws of the book of Leviticus teach us about what God expect of His people. While the cross of Jesus changed things, there is still much to learn from these laws about the character of God and the lifestyle He requires of all who belong to Him today.
Finally, the regulations of the book of Leviticus teach us about God. As we learn what He required of His people, we see something of His character and work. We understand more fully who God is and what hinders fellowship with Him.
The goal of this study is to help the reader to understand the book of Leviticus and see what it teaches us about God and His requirements. I trust this will be a tool to draw each reader closer to the Lord and into a deeper appreciation of what He has done.
