“For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul.”
Leviticus 17:11

The Book of Leviticus is, in many ways, simply a book of laws. This can make it difficult to read and challenging to teach. However, this does not mean that it should be skipped! It must be read, studied, and taught! God revealed it by inspiration and recorded it for the benefit of His children. Each law has its place and purpose. The book reveals the need for holiness, the seriousness of spiritual purity, and the pristine character and nature of God. It demonstrates God’s grace in providing a way for sinful man to enjoy divine fellowship and allowing sinners to come into His presence. The faithful must study and understand the book of Leviticus.
