The Bible is a very important book and one that you probably have heard of before. You may know a little about the Bible, nothing about the Bible or a whole lot about the Bible. Our Bible study is going to assume that you know nothing about the Bible and we are going to study together about this amazing book.
For our study, we suggest that you have a few items handy. First of all, it's a great idea to have a Bible with you. If you do not own a Bible and would like to purchase one, check these resources. If you prefer, you can open up an Online Bible right here on the web and study along.
Our studies together are going to include reference sheets, study pages and other printables. These sheets are designed to fit into a 3 ring binder which you can buy anywhere.
That's all you need to study with us!
If you are ready, then let's get started!!!
Did you know that Jesus loves you and has a plan for YOU! He cares about every part of your life and what you do everyday. By studying with us, you will learn about God's plan for you. You will learn that God has a plan for every person on the planet, he has a plan for the nation of Israel, and a plan for giving forgiveness and eternal life.
Before we study together today, let's say a prayer that God will help us understand
what he is trying to teach us with His word.
Leviticus - An Overview of the chapter of Leviticus
(If you don't have a Bible, you can open up an online Bible here. The Bible will open up in another window. That way you can switch back and forth easily!)
You can also listen to Leviticus on Audio right here!
Leviticus is the third book of the Bible. The word Leviticus comes from the word, "Levites." In the tabernacle, the Levites were the people that God chose to be priest. Leviticus is called the "Book of Atonement." Do you know what atonement means? The dictionary defines atone as: to make reparation for a sin, crime, error, or the like. Reparation means to make amends for your wrong doing. Letivitus is God's way of showing the people of Israel about God's forgiveness of sin. Leviticus is pointing the people of Israel to Jesus.
Who wrote the book of Leviticus?
Moses wrote the book of Leviticus which is the third book of the Law. We learned in our last lesson that there is evidence that Moses wrote the first 5 books of the Bible. Do you remember which verses pointed to Moses as the author of "The Books of the Law?"
In studying the book of Leviticus, we will learn about offerings and priests.

In Lesson #1, we learned that the first 5 books of the Bible are called the "Books of the Law."
Leviticus is the third book of the Law.
Who are the people that are mentioned in the book of Leviticus?
The book of Leviticus has rules for God's people. God gave His people laws about food, offerings, priests, daily living, feasts (holidays), health, punishments and rewards!
Chapters 1 - 7
In the chapters 1 - 7, God gives His people laws about offerings. God gave His people a law that required the Israelites to make offerings to God at the Tabernacle. There were different kinds of offerings for different purposes. An offering could be an animal, grain or other items that would be laid upon the altar.
Chapter 8 - 10
In chapters 8 - 10, God gives the Israelites laws about priests. God gave very strict laws about priest and their responsibilities and their behaviors.
In these chapters, God gives laws to the Israelites about their food, health and their daily lives. God gave the Israelites these laws to help them keep their camps clean and to stay healthy.
Do you like the holidays? Holidays are fun and are a celebration. God gave the Israelites laws about their holidays which are called "Feasts." God told his people how they should celebrate their holy days.
In these chapters God tells His people how to make a promise. God also tells the Israelites how to give to God and what punishments they could expect if they chose not to obey God. These chapters are all about punishments and rewards.

Did you know?
The book of Leviticus gives us pictures of Jesus! We learned last week how the Tabernacle was a picture of Jesus. Leviticus also shows us a portrait of Jesus.
The offerings and sacrifices that the people of Israel were required to give to God show us about the sacrifice that Jesus makes for us when he died on the cross.
The burnt offerings in Leviticus show us Jesus who was an offering himself to God because He was a perfect person without sin.
The meal (grain) offering also show us Jesus. Jesus was the perfect offering to God.
The peace offering shows us Jesus because Jesus came and he brought peace between man and God.
The sin offering is a picture of how Jesus died for the sins of the world. Jesus took our sins when He died on the cross.
The trespass offering shows us how Jesus died for our trespasses (sins) so that we could live.
What do YOU think?
Do you see that in the book of Leviticus that perfect sacrifices were required in order to get forgiveness from God? Jesus came to the world and offered Himself to God as the PERFECT offering. Jesus offered Himself to God and took all of our sins as His own even though He had NEVER sinned. Because of the great sacrifice of Jesus Christ, we have peace with God if we accept the sacrifice that Jesus made for us! Do YOU believe that Jesus died for YOU? He did! Even if YOU had been the only person alive, Jesus STILL would have died just for YOU! That is how much that Jesus loves YOU! Have you ever told Jesus that you believe He died for you and told him "Thank YOU?"

How exciting to learn that God has been planning and thinking
of us for a very long time!
In the Book of Levitcus, we see that PERFECT sacrifices were required to get forgiveness from God. Jesus was a perfect sacrifice to God and He died for you and for me! We can never be perfect but because of Jesus, we can still have forgiveness from God.
The Bible tells us that nobody but Jesus lived a sin-free life and because of this we all need Jesus. God loved YOU and me so much that He gave us His only son Jesus so that we could one day live in heaven forever!
Because of Jesus, we no longer have to make perfect sacrifices to God in order to be forgiven. Jesus paid for ALL our sins with the sacrifice on the cross. Thank you Jesus for loving us soooo much!
Let's say a little closing prayer today.
