A Call to Holiness (Season 3, Episode 1)

The book of Leviticus is one of the more difficult books in the Bible to study. It is not that it is hard to understand – through there are some difficult passages. Rather, it is often seen as being tedious, boring, and largely irrelevant to Christians today. I have heard it said that the book of Leviticus has derailed many people’s daily Bible reading plans. This may very well be the case.

However, Leviticus is part of the Old Testament and has been “written for our instruction” (Romans 15:4). As we study the book, we will learn about holiness, worship, sacrifice, authority, purity, and more. All of these apply to our lives as Christians. Paul told the churches of Galatia, “The Law has become our tutor to lead us to Christ” (Galatians 3:24).

The overall theme of the book of Leviticus is holiness. To be holy is to be set apart for God’s purpose. Key verse – “Speak to all the congregation of the sons of Israel and say to them, ‘You shall be holy, for I the Lord your God am holy’” (Leviticus 19:2). This is quoted by Peter (1 Peter 1:16). The instructions about sacrifices, the priesthood, sin, cleanliness, etc., were all based on the idea of God’s people being holy as He is holy.

In studying the book of Leviticus, we can read about five things that were to be holy. This episode will examine these five things and what they parallel for us living under the new covenant.
