An exegetical study of Leviticus designed to enable the student to understand and interpret the biblical message. Primary attention will be given to the book’s historical and canonical contexts, its form and structure, and the interpretation of its statutes and precepts. Particular attention will be given to the sacrificial system, the festal occasions, and purity laws, as well as to theological concerns of holiness and atonement and the ongoing applicability of Leviticus and its truths in the contemporary setting.
