DAY 219: JOURNEY THROUGH THE BIBLE IN A YEAR
Today we conclude our journey through the book of Leviticus with chapters 25-27.
Before starting today’s journey, spend some time in prayer, asking God to reveal His true meaning of Leviticus 25-27. Read Leviticus 25-27. Let’s journey!
Leviticus, the third book of the Jewish Torah and the Christian Old Testament, takes place immediately following Exodus. Despite their miraculous rescue from slavery in Egypt, the Israelites were quick to rebel and turn away from the Lord and worship false gods. The Israelites returned to the Lord, building Him a Tabernacle which He filled with His presence. However, God is Holy, and the unholy (sinners) cannot be in His presence. The book of Leviticus shows how God graciously provides a way for the Israelites to live in His presence.
Leviticus 25-27: Our journey today explains the Sabbath year, the Year of Jubilee, God’s reward for obedience and punishment for disobedience, and how to redeem what is set aside to the Lord. Today’s journey through Leviticus is a story of redemption, obedience, correction, and restoration. (Leviticus 25:1-27:34)
After reading chapters 25-27, consider the following: What instruction is being provided in today’s reading? How does this instruction help the Israelites in their relationship with the Lord and living in His presence?
