The 365 Day Devotional Commentary

Leviticus

INTRODUCTION

About 2100 B.C. God selected a man, Abraham, and gave him special promises. The Lord would be Abraham’s God, and the God of Abraham’s descendants. God also told Abraham that his offspring would be enslaved in Egypt for some 400 years. What God predicted happened. A group of Abraham’s descendants, just 70 in number, settled in Egypt. There the family, called “Israelites” after Abraham’s grandson Israel, multiplied rapidly. In time the dominant Egyptians made slaves of the Israelites. Crushed by oppression, the Israelites cried out to the God of their fathers. About 1450 B.C. the Lord used Moses, an Israelite who had been adopted into Egypt’s royal family, to free His people. The story of the miracles God performed for His people is told in Exodus. That book also relates the people’s journey to Sinai, where God gave the Israelites a Law to live by and a tabernacle which symbolized His presence with them. Leviticus focuses on the relationship of God with this chosen people. This book contains special instructions which God gave to Moses during the year the Israelites camped before Mount Sinai. These instructions show how God’s chosen people can stay in intimate, continuing fellowship with the living God. Leviticus is essentially a book about worship, a book about intimacy. Today you and I can apply many of the principles seen in the practices established for Israel to deepen our own personal relationship with the one true God.
