Product Description

At first glance, the Book of Leviticus seems like barren material for lively preaching. Many expositors merely skim the surface for messages on tithing or sabbath-keeping. Yet Leviticus isone of the most important books of the Old Testament; it not only describes the religious system of ancient Israel, it also lays the theological foundation for the Christian gospel.In this book, Allen Ross enables preachers and teachers to mine the riches of Leviticus and deliver them to a contemporary audience. Following the same practical method he used for Genesis in the acclaimed Creation and Blessing, Ross first carefully positions Leviticus within its ancient context. He then traces the development of God's plan of salvation--how the laws, rituals, symbols, and events in Leviticus prepared for the complete revelation in Jesus Christ. Finally, Ross offers helpful ideas for correlating Leviticus to New Testament teachings (particularly Romans, Hebrews, and Peter) and for applying the material in relevant expository form.

Publisher's Description

At first glance, the Book of Leviticus seems like barren material for lively preaching. Most expositors merely skim the surface for messages on tithing or sabbath-keeping. Yet Leviticus is one of the most important books of the Old Testament; it not only describes the complete religious system of ancient Israel, it also lays the theological foundation for the Christian gospel.

In Holiness to the Lord, Allen P. Ross enables preachers and teachers to mine the riches of Leviticus and deliver them to a contemporary audience. Following the same practical method he used in the acclaimed Creation and Blessing, Ross first carefully sites Leviticus within its context in the ancient world. Then he traces the development of God's plan of salvation-how Leviticus' laws, rituals, symbols, and events prepared for the complete revelation in Jesus Christ. Finally, unlike traditional commentaries, Ross offers helpful ideas for correlating Leviticus to New Testament teachings (particularly Romans, Hebrews, and Peter) and for applying the material in relevant expository form.

Holiness to the Lord is every expositor's indispensable guide for interpreting the Law for the church and for elucidating Leviticus in practical, biblical messages about worship, sanctification, and obedience.

    Best commentary on Leviticus

    This commentary by Ross is the best all around on Leviticus. A great expository book. Ive read quite a few commentaries on Leviticus but none as clear and helpful. Most of all Ross avoids over spiritualizing as many commentators spend alot of time doing on Leviticus.
