Leviticus Summary

If you’re the type of Christian who spends most of your time in the New Testament, and not so much in the Old Testament, then you probably haven’t spent much time at all in Leviticus. The book is almost completely concerned with rules and regulations that the LORD handed down to the Israelites. There is some action—such as the Glory of the LORD appearing in Chapter 9, or Aaron’s sons being punished for their sin in Chapter 10—but for the most part, the book consists of rules.

Leviticus 27: Dedications to the LORD

No post for today

I’m feeling sort of run-down, today, and I just don’t have the heart to delve into Leviticus 27, which is another chapter of rules and regulations. (This is the reason that so many people don’t read the Old Testament—they start at Genesis, like I’ve done for this blog, and try and read it straight through, and then get bogged down somewhere around Leviticus or Numbers. For the same reason, I can’t let this blog become my only time to study the Bible, or I’ll be so bogged down with legality that I’ll forget who Christ is!)

So, in lieu of a post on Leviticus 27, I’ll just put up a couple of quotes from a recent talk by Piper, that I found on the Pure Church blog:

If we create a kind of Christianity that says there is no truth we will simply create a kind of Christianity that colonizes slaves.

When relativism holds sway in a society over time sooner or later more and more people do what is right in their own eyes. And when enough people do what’s right in their own eyes we call it anarchy. There are only two solutions to anarchy. One is revival. Or a dictator.

I don’t normally look at this blog on the weekend—and this weekend is going to be atypically busy anyway—so I’ll probably tackle Leviticus 27 on Monday.
