Pastors Neal Radichel and Nathanael Mayhew discuss the difficult book of Leviticus in the Old Testament. This is one of those books that many people give up trying to read because of all the laws recorded there. But those laws have a purpose. They point us to the problem of our sin, and the need to be reconciled to God. This is something we can't do on our own. Leviticus not only points us to what God desires of us (to be perfect, even as He is perfect), but also reveals His solution to our problem of sin. Through the sacrifices which are outlined in Leviticus we are pointed to the blood of another who would take our place and bear God's just judgment which we deserved. These point to Jesus the coming Savior, the Lamb of God Who takes away the sin of the world. Understanding this gives us a better appreciation and understanding of Leviticus as a whole. May the Holy Spirit bless your study of this book that still has a message for us today!
