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.
We don’t live in the culture that originally received the Word of God. If we are to grasp this text, we must also understand some of the cultural connotations within. To help us, historian and professor Dr. Mark Chavalas joins us today.
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.
It may be a surprise when we realize that technically only about two chapters of Exodus (Exodus 13:17-Exodus 15:21) deal with the “Exodus proper.”
So, there is much more for us in these 40 chapters. We’re continuing our over-view study of the Scriptures by looking at each book week by week. Join us today as Michael teaches about Exodus.
From time to time throughout this series, we’ll release bonus episodes consisting of interviews with experts who are able to bring a little more nuance and depth to some of the themes and characters in the books we’re studying than I’m able to teach in a single episode about that book.
In this first Bonus Episode in our Cover to Cover series, I spoke with with Dr. Michael Lawson about the creation of Eve and the first marriage.
