Introduction to Leviticus
The overwhelming message of Leviticus is the holiness of Yahweh – “You must by holy because, I, the Creator, is holy” Leviticus 19:2. But how can unholy people approach a holy God? The answer – first sin must be dealt with.
In Leviticus sacrifices, priests and the sacred Day of Atonement opened the way for the Israelites to come to Yahweh.
