Product Description

Leviticus

The key theological concept of Leviticus is holiness. The phrase "holiness to the Lord" occurs approximately 150 times in the book. Thus, there is no doubt that the theology of Leviticus is a question of holiness. Whenever Israel is holy, they enjoy the state of purity, cleanness, and harmony with God. Whenever they are unholy, they are impure, unclean, and victims of cosmic chaos.

The Lord calls for loyalty to the new covenant just as he calls for obedience to the Mosaic legislation. The call for purity among the Lord's people and single allegiance to his will still resonates, and Christians can learn from Leviticus to reverence the sacred space within their hearts created by the presence of their sovereign holy Lord. As priests ourselves among God's holy spiritual house, the church, we are called upon "to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ" (1 Pet. 2:5) and even to consider our bodies "as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God" as our "spiritual act of worship" (Rom. 12:1). In different frame then, Leviticus can instruct us concerning human sinfulness and God's gracious provision for atonement, healing, and hope so that we can truly be "a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God," fit for God's holy and sacred presence within us (1 Pet. 2:9).

Many have said that in order to preach and teach effectively from the New Testament, you must have a grasp of Leviticus.

Numbers

The theme of Numbers is the wilderness experience of Israel. The trek from Sinai to Canaan that should have required but a few months at most was extended by the people's disobedience to a period of nearly forty years, a time that allowed the passing of one generation and the maturation of the next one.

The message of Numbers involves promise and hope but, for the most part, it is hope deferred and promise delayed. While two generations of Israelites do come into focus in the book, by any reckoning the greater stress is on the first of these, the rebellious generation that witnessed the miracles of the Exodus, received the Lord's instruction at Sinai, and departed enthusiastically to go to Canaan, only to see their robust optimism melt in the desert heat and the other harsh realities of the wilderness.
