Jacob Milgrom’s incisive commentary on Leviticus, which began with Leviticus 1–16 and Leviticus 17–22, continues in this last volume of three. It provides an authoritative and comprehensive explanation of ethical values concealed in Israel’s rituals. Leviticus 23–27 brings us to the climactic end of the book and its revolutionary innovations, among which are the evolution of the festival calendar with its emphasis on folk traditions, and the jubilee, the priestly answer to the socio-economic problems of their time.

Top Highlights

“In sharp contrast with all ancient Near Eastern andurāru / mīšarum proclamations, the biblical jubilee was cyclical—ordained by God and not by an earthly ruler according to his whim or need—and could not be revoked or circumvented.” (Page 2169)

“A final clue is that the bread loaves are twelve in number. Thus I can only concur with the opinion that the bread offering is a ‘pledge of the covenant between the twelve tribes and the Lord’ (de Vaux 1961: 422).” (Page 2094)

“Therefore, the ʿōmer is not ripe barley, but the color of ripe barley” (Page 1983)

“There is logical progression in chaps. 21–23: chap. 23 supplements the sacred persons (priests) and sacred offerings (sacrifices) with sacred time (festivals).” (Page 1951)

“The rabbis were fully cognizant that the theme that unites all these rituals is a supplication for rain” (Page 2043)

The Jewish Publication Society of America was founded in Philadelphia in 1888 to provide the children of Jewish immigrants to America with books about their heritage in the language of the New World. As the oldest publisher of Jewish titles in the English language, the mission of JPS is to enhance Jewish culture by promoting the dissemination of religious and secular works of exceptional quality, in the United States and abroad, to all individuals and institutions interested in past and contemporary Jewish life.

Over the years JPS has issued a body of works for all tastes and needs.
