This commentary explores how each chapter of Leviticus finds its fulfillment in Jesus Christ—His earthly life, atoning death, resurrection, and ongoing ministry in the heavenly sanctuary on behalf of His people on Earth. Using the methods of ritual analysis, it examines the agents, enactment, and theological purpose of each of the instructions given in the divine speeches in Leviticus.
The commentary on each pericope closes with a section on that specific text’s “Fulfillment in Christ.” A hymn quotation sums up the theology of that pericope as it applies to the Christian faith and worship life of the church.
In the Logos edition of the Leviticus, you get easy access to Scripture texts and to a wealth of other resources in your digital library. Hovering over Scripture references links you instantly to the verse you’re looking for, and with Passage Guides, Word Studies, and a wealth of other tools from Logos, you can delve into God’s Word like never before!
