The Book Of Leviticus

First and Last VersesFirst Verse: "The Lord called to Moses from the Tent of the Lord's presence and gave him the following rules" (Leviticus 1:1).Final Verse: "These are the commands that the Lord gave Moses on Mount Sinai for the people of Israel" (Leviticus 27:34)

The Book of LeviticusThe book of Leviticus is a book of law containing 27 chapters. It tells of the ways to offer sacrafices to God. These laws were told to Moses, who then shared them with others. This took place in between 1390 and 1310 B.C.

ThemesThe main theme of this book is about the holiness of God and and the ways that each person could worship Him and maintain their relationship with Him. The other themes include the regulations for worship and religipus ceremonies in ancient Israel. These regulations were told to Moses by God, and then told to the priests responsibe for carrying out these duties by Moses. This will all help the people of Israel to strengthen and support their bond with God.

Other VersesVerse One: "Do not take revenge on others or continue to hate them, but love your neighbors as you love yourself. I am the Lord" (Leviticus 19:18)Verse Two: "An offering is to be made if you sin against the Lord by refusing to return what another Israelite has left as a deposit or by stealing something from him or by cheating him" (Leviticus 6:2)Verse Three: "If you unintentionally touch anything ritually unclean, suchas a dead animal, you are unclean and guilty as soon as you realize what you have done" (Leviticus 5:2)

The Day of AtonementOn the tenth day of the seventh month, a ritual is performed to reprehend our sins. On this day, no one you do not eat meat or do any work, otherwise you will face punishment. Instead, come together and offer food sacrafices to the Lord. This day is to be observed as a special day of rest.

How It Relates To Us In our lives, we strive to have a strong relationship with God. To do this we must recognize His role in everything we see, and remember to thank Him for it. One way of saying thank you or sorry is by making a sacrafice to him. In these times, we don't have to kill an animal, but instead give something that might be making us spiritually unclean up. This is one way to strengthen our relationship with God. The best way in any time is by constant prayer to Him to say thank you for everything we have, because without God, we would have nothing.
