“All of this has happened before. And it will all happen again.” – Everyone on “Battlestar Galactica.” Is it possible that one random chapter of Leviticus is actually the key to understanding the entire narrative of the people of Israel? I’m gonna go ahead and say . . . maybe. Again, I’m no Bible scholar, … Continue reading
Well now, this is funny. When I started this project, Leviticus was the book I thought was going to give me the most trouble. Nobody EVER makes it through Leviticus! Leviticus is where “read through the Bible in a year” plans go to die. But I made it. I made it all the way through! … Continue reading

Leviticus 24 gives us, yet again, an example of a situation that prompts the creation of new laws. The first set was back in chapter 10 after Aaron’s … Continue reading
So, you’re feeling a little down in the dumps after the last few chapters of Leviticus. I get it. That was some tough stuff. Lots of getting cut off from the people and burned alive and stoned to death and all that. Well, are you ready for a little pick-me-up? How about six pick-me-ups? I … Continue reading
Can I make a confession? I was not looking forward to Leviticus. I was dreading it. How would I be able, day after day, to study a seemingly endless list of laws about slaughtering animals? What kind of material would there be for me to write about? But I honestly can’t believe how interesting this … Continue reading
If you’ve been following along in Leviticus, you have probably seen that Israel’s priests are some busy guys. It was starting to feel like there was no end to their responsibilities. Well, that all changed in Leviticus 21. The priests finally learn some things they shouldn’t do. Running the local morgue tops the list. Relationships … Continue reading
