Monday Night Bible Study: Leviticus | Week 2

We kicked off our fall Bible study series on Monday with a discussion of the historical backdrop and structure of the Book of Leviticus and its impact on modern Judeo-Christian society.

We will continue on Monday, September 19th at 7:30pm Eastern with a study of Chapters 1-4. Here is the link to participate via Zoom, and here are instructions for joining a Zoom meeting.

Notes for your reading:

  • How many times does it say "God spoke to..."? (I counted and found 35 instances across the entire 27 chapters.)
  • As you find all the "God spoke to" instances for yourself, ask yourself, who God is speaking to?
  • Why do you think the authors of Leviticus used "God spoke to" so many times?

Here's an outline of all 27 chapters:

  • 1-7: Offerings
  • 8-10: Specific instructions to the priests
  • 11-15: Instructions to the people
  • 16: How to set up the altar for atonement
  • 17-22: Practical holiness
  • 23-25: Sabbath, seasons, festivals, feasts
  • 26-27: The conditions to follow to get God's blessing

We're planning to study Leviticus in the following order:

  • September 19: Chapters 1-4
  • September 26: Chapters 5-7
  • October 3: Chapters 8-10
  • October 10: Chapters 11-15
  • October 17: Chapters 16
  • October 24: Chapters 17-22
