Michael teaches through Psalm 40 the way through our present troubles is found in looking to God’s faithfulness in our past. This sermon was originally recorded at Stonebriar Community Church in Frisco, TX in 2011.
We’ve moved through the Pentateuch (Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy) and into the Historical Books. If you missed our study of Joshua, listen and review Show Notes Here.
Today, we’re looking at Judges, which has often been referred to as the darkest days in Israel’s history.
Judges is a tectonic shift in the storyline, as we look at a generation who doesn’t know God.
Moses leads his people as far as he will be allowed to go toward the Promised Land and is buried by God in the book of Deuteronomy.
This book is much more than a second-telling of the law. It’s a recounting of Israel’s history and an underscoring of who God is, and what He’s promised.
Join us as we look today to the fifth and final chapter of the Pentateuch.
As we saw last week, Leviticus – though often approached with dread – offered its first recipients a welcome reprieve and freedom.
The Law revealed all that was needed to know how to worship a holy God. It’s not just formalism. It’s holiness.
Jody Capehart joins us in this episode to help us see how Christ is reflected in the festivals decreed by the Lord in Leviticus, and invites us to incorporate rest into our upcoming holiday season.
To the first recipients, Leviticus offered freedom from the burden of the Law through instruction for confession and worship.
The Pentateuch––the first five books of the Bible––is a whole in five parts. We might even say it’s one book with five chapters, and Leviticus is one of them.
