Product Description

Levitical rules and regulations can at first appear irrelevant to contemporary Christians - but they provide important Old Testament background for understanding large portions of the New Testament. Leviticus describes a point in human history when God came and dwelt in the midst of the ancient Israelites and taught them what their purpose in life really was. Jay Sklar's commentary makes clear what it is that the Lord said to them and, in so doing, makes clear what he says to us today.

About the Series:
The Tyndale Old Testament Commentaries have long been a trusted resource for Bible study. Written by some of the world's most distinguished evangelical scholars, these volumes offer clear, reliable and relevant explanations of every book in the Old Testament. The introduction to each volume gives a concise but thorough description of the authorship, date and historical background of the biblical book under consideration. The commentary itself examines the text section by section, drawing out its main themes. It also comments on individual verses and deals with problems of interpretation. The aim throughout is to get at the true meaning of the Bible and to make its message plain to readers today.

Publisher's Description

Preaching's Preacher's Guide to the Best Bible Reference for 2014 (Old Testament Commentaries) Levitical rules and regulations can at first appear irrelevant to contemporary Christians--but they provide important Old Testament background for understanding large portions of the New Testament. Leviticus describes a point in human history when God came and dwelt in the midst of the ancient Israelites and taught them what their purpose in life really was. Jay Sklar's commentary makes clear what it is that the Lord said to them and, in so doing, makes clear what he says to us today.

Editorial Reviews

"If you have always baulked at reading Leviticus, then get this book, and use it as a guide. It will be money and time well-spent."
"Pastors, seminarians, and Bible teachers will surely benefit from this volume, and its readers will likely quote many of Sklar's moder-day analogies."
"Most Christians find Leviticus rather difficult to grasp. Here is a volume aimed at Bible students and pastors that will provide real help at an economical price. Mr. Skylar has spent much of his career on this portion of Scripture and it shows. . . . In the commentary proper every passage is given sufficient, interesting, and helpful discussion. You could not help but gain by this fine volume."
"Professor Sklar deserves our gratitude for the way in which he has set about his task of providing an entry-level work for what many newcomers to the OT view as a daunting part of the Bible."
"Too often Bible readers overlook the book of Leviticus. By offering a balanced and readable commentary that focuses on the person and purpose of Christ, Sklar reminds us that the rich text of Leviticus loudly proclaims the gospel message."
"This is an outstanding commentary that will serve pastors and preachers well for at least another generation. It opens up the world of ancient Israel's laws and ritual in a clear and understandable way, rejoicing in the grace of the law of the Lord that is more to be desired than gold, a law which leads us to the majesty and glory of Jesus."
