AN INTRODUCTION TO THE BOOK OF LEVITICUS
The Book of Moses is called by the title of "Leviticus" because it records the duties of the Levites and priests. This book describes the role of sacrifice in God's plan. Though all people have sinned, God will accept a substitute for the death of each sinner. It is a portent of things to come in the New Testament, where Jesus, "the lamb of God," takes away the sin of the world (Jn.1v29).
Leviticus contains material which delineates civil, sanitary, ceremonial, moral, and religious laws from God. The main purpose of this book is to show that God is holy and that man is sinful. However, if people will recognize this and obey, then they will be permitted to approach God. Each type of offering was commanded to teach God's ways.
