Bogged down by reading Leviticus? Confused about how to understand this biblical book? Struggling to see how it applies to your Christian life today?
Dr. Jay Sklar, professor of Old Testament, has collaborated with colleague and Covenant Seminary graduate Scott Behm (MDiv ’13) to produce Leviticus Bible Study, a companion volume to Dr. Sklar’s acclaimed Leviticus: An Introduction and Commentary (IVP, 2014).
Perfect for individual or group study, the new book will help bring this challenging Old Testament text to life for today’s readers by showing:
- How to read Leviticus and apply it to our lives.
- The relevance of unfamiliar ancient Near Eastern cultural concepts.
- The meaning of key themes.
- The significance of Jesus as atoning sacrifice and faithful priest on our behalf.
This flexible Bible study can be done as a whole in 32 weeks, or broken up into a series of smaller 12-week studies focused on specific themes, such as “The Gospel in Leviticus,” “Jesus in Leviticus,” “Sacrifice and Worship in Leviticus,” “Holiness in Leviticus,” and many others. Try it, and see how this often-overlooked book of the Bible can provide timeless wisdom, fresh insight, and powerful gospel inspiration for our times.
Still not sure? Let Dr. Sklar convince you with this short video.
Leviticus Bible Study is available on Amazon or from the PCA Bookstore in a package deal with Dr. Sklar’s Leviticus commentary.
