Samuel Balentine is surely correct when he says that Leviticus "is perhaps the most neglected of the neglected biblical books.”

 

W. Graham Scroggie said "Exodus begins with sinners, but Leviticus begins with saints, that is, as to their standing."

 

Collin Hansen - I'm going to take a chance and suggest that delight is not the first word that comes to mind. Perhaps drudgery would be more accurate. How many well-intentioned Bible reading plans have crashed and burned in this book filled with detailed descriptions of how Israelites could worship and what they could eat and wear? Yet as Christians we understand that Leviticus is God's word for our good. Indeed, we believe that Leviticus—like the rest of the Old Testament—helps us understand the work of Christ.  (Daring to Delight in Leviticus)

 

W A Criswell - Leviticus is one of the most important books of the Old Testament. Without an understanding of the principles of atonement and holiness found in Leviticus, much of the New Testament has no foundation on which to rest. To say that Leviticus is one of the "most New Testament" books of the Old Testament would hardly be an exaggeration, for it foreshadows the Person and work of Christ in a most remarkable and elucidating manner.

 

Dr. William Barrick, OT scholar asks -  "Why would we want to study a book that dedicates seven chapters to the sacrificial system of ancient Israel and five chapters to details concerning indelicate matters like the emission of a variety of bodily fluids?"  (Introduction to the Book of Leviticus) (See also Arie Leder's article -  Leviticus - Reading and Hearing Leviticus - Why Is It Not Preached)

 

Irving Jensen - The book of Leviticus is God’s manual for His people on how to approach Him and live pleasing in His sight. In the experience of the Israelites, encamped on Mount Sinai, the laws of Leviticus were the guideposts which they needed for life on the wilderness journey ahead, and for settling in Canaan. The key command, “Ye shall be holy,” pervades the book, revealing something of the awesome message which God always wants all His people to hear and obey.... It was the custom of the Jews to call each book of their Scriptures by its first word in the Hebrew text. For Leviticus this was wayyiqra, meaning “and he called.” Obviously this title does not indicate what Leviticus is about. The Greek Septuagint (Lxx) version, which was the first translation of the Old Testament, assigned the title Leuitikon, meaning “that which pertains to the Levites.” The reason for such a title is that much of the book concerns the ministry of the priests, who were an important segment of the tribe of Levi (cf. Heb 7:11). The Greek title was carried over into the Latin Vulgate as Leviticus, which was then adopted by the English Bible. (Jensen's survey of the Old Testament) (Jensen's Survey of the Old Testament)

 

J Sidlow Baxter - A certain lady, on being asked if she had ever read the Bible right through, replied: "I have never read it right through, though I have read much of it consecutively. Three time I have started to read it through, but each time I have broken down in Leviticus. I have enjoyed Genesis and Exodus, but Leviticus has seemed such dull reading that I have become discouraged and have given up.: Which did that friend the more deserve - sympathy or rebuke? To speak of Leviticus as "dull reading" misses the point of the book completely. How could we expect a book like Leviticus, which is occupied throughout with regulations, to provide exciting reading? Obviously, it is not meant just to be read, but to be studied. It yields little of its treasure to a mere reading; but a reasonable concentration transforms it into one of the most intriguing articles in the Scriptures. At the outset, let us clear away certain discouraging misunderstandings about the book. There appear to be four such. First, there are those who think it impossible for them so to master all the ritual and symbol in Leviticus as to get much spiritual profit. Second, there are those who suppose that since the Levitical prescriptions have now long passed away, with the Mosaic dispensation, they cannot sustain any living relation to the present day. Third, there are others who profess difficulty inasmuch as certain of the Levitical commands, in their severity or seeming triviality, seem at variance with what else we know of God. Fourth, still others are discouraged because, whereas in Genesis and Exodus the main outline is easily found, there seems no such clear outline here, in this third book of Scripture. Now, any fair study of Leviticus will quickly dispel these misgivings; for, as we shall see, it simply abounds in spiritual values; it has a living voice to our own day; its revelation of the Divine character is unique; and it is built together according to a clear plan. Its Mosaic authorship and Divine inspiration are attested by the Lord Jesus. It is referred to over forty times in the New Testament. All that follows it in the Scriptures is colored by it; and, therefore, a clear knowledge of it contributes greatly towards comprehending the message of the Bible as a whole.  (Explore the Book- J.

Henrietta Mears explains why we need Leviticus in our modern culture - Leviticus is a timely book for it insists on keeping the body holy as well as the soul. It teaches that the redeemed ones must be holy because their Redeemer is holy. It gives us not only the key for our spiritual life and its holy walk, but it also surprises us with real lessons in hygiene and sanitation for the care of the body. The Jewish people are wonderful evidence of the result of this latter in their long and vigorous lives. It is a divine book. The opening verse affords us the clue to the whole, "The Lord called to Moses and spoke to him from the Tent of Meeting." Leviticus is God speaking to us through the Tabernacle and its meaning. It is a personal book. The second verse intimates this, "When any of you brings an offering to the Lord." Notice, He expects each person to bring his or her own gift. The way is often as important as the gift. Have you an offering for the Lord? Then this book will appeal to you......

     "Get right," say the offerings. There are five of them: burnt offering, grain offering, fellowship offering, sin offering and guilt offering. "Keep right," say the feasts. There are eight of them: Sabbath, Passover, Pentecost, Trumpets, Atonement, Tabernacles, the Sabbath year and Jubilee. Leviticus is called the Book of Atonement (Leviticus 16:30-34). God says, "Be holy, because I am holy" (Leviticus 11:44-45; Leviticus 19:2; Leviticus 20:7, 26). The book of Leviticus is God's picture book for the children of Israel to help them in their religious training. Every picture pointed forward to the work of Jesus Christ. The title of Leviticus suggests the subject matter of the book—the Levites and the priests and their service in the Tabernacle. It is also called the Book of Laws. We remember in the book of Exodus how God gave Moses the exact instructions about how to build the Tabernacle and about the institution of the priesthood to carry on the service in this holy place. Like Exodus, Leviticus begins with the Hebrew word we ("and"). As this book opens, the children of Israel are still at Mount Sinai. God is continuing to give His instructions for orderly worship in the Tabernacle. In Genesis, we see humanity ruined. In Exodus, humanity redeemed. In Leviticus, humanity worshiping.
     Sacrifice and Separation (Leviticus 1:1-6:7) One of the most important questions in life is "How may an unholy people approach a holy God?" At the very beginning of the book we see God making provision for His people to approach Him in worship. This book shows redeemed Israel that the way to God is by sacrifice and the walk with God by separation. Isn't it strange that deep down in every heart there is a sense of guilt and the feeling of a need of doing something to secure pardon or gain the favor of the one wronged? Pagans bring their sacrifice to the altar of their gods, for they realize that they cannot do anything about their sin themselves. They must make atonement for it. The mothers in India used to throw their babies into the river Ganges to appease their gods. The British colonial government tried to put a stop to this, but the practice still continues. Pagans cannot see beyond their sacrifices. When we look at the sacrifices in this book, we find that they are only types (see
study of Biblical types), or symbolic representations that point to the Perfect Sacrifice for sin which was to be made on Calvary. All the sacrifices in this book point to "the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world" (John 1:29). Sin may be forgiven, but it must receive its penalty. "The wages of sin is death" (Ro 6:23). Sin keeps us from drawing near to God. He is "too pure to look on evil" (Habakkuk 1:13). There can be no fellowship between God and the sinner until sin has been dealt with; the only way is sacrifice. "Without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness" (Hebrews 9:22). Five offerings are described in Leviticus. God wants us to understand the awful reality of sin, so He asks for a sacrifice each day. Here is a list of the offerings, with a keyword to identify them. Learn this simple outline to fix in mind the first six chapters of Leviticus.
 

Burnt Offering: "Surrender" of Christ for the world—Leviticus 1:1-17
Grain Offering: "Service" of Christ in life—Leviticus 2:1-16
Fellowship Offering: "Serenity" of Christ in life—Leviticus 3:1-17
Sin Offering: "Substitute" of Christ for sin—Leviticus 4:1-5:13
Guilt Offering: "Satisfaction" by Christ for demands of God—Leviticus 5:14-6:7.
(What the Bible Is All About)

 

Samuel E. Balentine - “It is perhaps the most neglected of the neglected biblical books.” (Leviticus, Interpretation: A Bible Commentary for Teaching and Preaching).

 

Charles Swindoll addresses the question of why Leviticus is important for the modern church -- Today’s readers are often put off by the book’s lists of laws regarding diet, sacrifice, and social behavior. But within these highly detailed directives we discover the holiness—the separateness, distinction, and utter “otherness”—of God. And we learn how sin devastates humanity’s relationship with their Creator. God established the sacrificial system so that His covenant people might enjoy His fellowship through worship; it also allowed for repentance and renewal: "When an Israelite worshiper laid his hand on the animal victim, he identified himself with the animal as his substitute...this accomplished a symbolic transfer of his sin and a legal transfer of his guilt to the animal victim. God then accepted the slaughter of the animal....as a ransom payment for the particular sin which occasioned it." (quoting F D. Lindsey) (Ed comment: But remember the Law was only a shadow which pointed to the substance [Heb 10:1-4-note, Col 2:17-note, Heb 9:28-note], Christ's perfect sacrifice - OT saints were saved by faith just as NT saints [cf Ge 15:6, Hab 2:4-note], not by keeping the Law or performing sacrifices.)  Many years after Moses wrote Leviticus, Jesus came to offer Himself as the ultimate sacrifice, holy and perfect, once for all, fulfilling the Law and rendering future animal sacrifices unnecessary and void (Hebrews 10:10-note). (Book of Leviticus Overview - Insight for Living Ministries)

Ray Stedman - "Leviticus is the book of access to God, of instruction in how to worship. Worship is nothing more than laying hold of God. We don't worship when we simply bow our heads and let some kind of pious thoughts run vagrantly through our minds. We worship when we lay hold of what God is. Though it may seem dry reading, when we begin to analyze it, Leviticus opens up as a great book which gives us tremendous lessons in the life of worship." In Leviticus: The Way to Wholeness Stedman commenting on "You are to be holy to Me, for I the Lord am holy; and I have set you apart from the peoples to be Mine" (Lev. 20:26) writes "That is the purpose of the book of Leviticus. It details the way by which man is made holy enough to live in the Divine Presence and to enjoy a relationship so close that God will delight to say, "You are mine." Don't be turned off by the word "holy" in this passage. Most people associate holiness with some kind of grimness. They react as did the little girl who happened to see a mule looking over the fence at her. She had never seen a mule before and she said to it, "I don't know what you are but you must be a Christian--you look just like grandpa." To many of us, "holy" people are those who look as if they had been steeped in vinegar or soaked in embalming fluid. But the Scriptures speak of "the beauty of holiness" (Ps. 29:2, KJV). True holiness is therefore something splendidly attractive. The original root from which the word holy is derived is the same root from which a very attractive English word also comes. That word is "wholeness." Holiness, therefore, means wholeness, being complete. If you read "wholeness" in place of "holiness" everywhere you find it in the Bible, you will be much closer to what the writers originally meant. "
"Leviticus is a book of instruction designed to make all that God is available to man, so that all that man is may be available to God. Its theme is access to God. It begins with the story of the Tabernacle, that wonderful building where God dwelt. If we could have climbed to a mountaintop and looked out over the wilderness area where the twelve tribes of Israel were encamped, it would have been a strange and wonderful sight to see this vast assemblage spread out on the plains in perfect order and symmetry, each of the twelve tribes in their particular place. As we walked down the mountain and passed into the camp, we would have come through all the thousands of Israelites until we came to the outer court of the Tabernacle.
Then, going through the great open gate, we would have passed the altar of sacrifice and the brazen laver, and would have come to the door of the Tabernacle itself. Moving through the mysterious and marvelous outer veil, we would have come into the Holy Place, where were the showbread, the altar of incense, and the great golden candelabra. Beyond stood the inner veil, and behind that -- if we dared to enter -- was the Holy of Holies. The only article in that room was the Ark of the Covenant. That mysterious vehicle was the dwelling place of God, with the mercy seat above it and the two cherubim with their wings covering it. There too, in a marvelous way, shone the Shekinah light of God's glory. It was a place of fearsomeness. The only one who dared to enter was the high priest -- and then only once a year with the blood of the goat of atonement, in order to make atonement for the sins of all the people. All this is a picture of God's dwelling in the midst of his people, showing how they could have fellowship with him.
The book of Leviticus is designed to teach us three major principles: The first is representation. That is, we never would have been permitted into the Holy of Holies, had we been part of Israel. Only the high priest could go in. But when he did, he represented the whole nation. By that representation, the nation began to learn the wonderful principle of appropriating the value of another's work. After all, this is exactly what we are asked to do, isn't it? We are asked to believe Christ died for us, and that we died with him. And all of our victory rests upon our ability to appropriate the work of Another who is our representative. God began to teach this to the world in Leviticus.
The second great principle or truth God began to teach was his adequacy. The book opens with the institution of five offerings, each one speaking of Jesus Christ in his death for us, each one showing how a basic need of human life is fully met already in what Christ has done, and all of them together showing us that there is nothing we will ever run into which hasn't already been taken care of. Therefore it is absolute unbelief to come to God and start asking him to do something for us which he hasn't already done. What is necessary is not to plead with him to do something new, but for us to start believing and appropriating what he has already done.
The third great truth God began to teach was that all of the representation and all of the adequacy become expressive in our life, become actual in terms of our experience, by the simple act of obedience, of faith in action -- faith moving, acting upon what has been done. Leviticus is that book of instruction. If you read it in conjunction with the book of Hebrews it is one of the most illuminating studies in all of the Bible." (

John MacArthur - The most profitable study in Leviticus is that which yields truth in the understanding of sin, guilt, substitutionary death, and atonement by focusing on features which are not explained or illustrated elsewhere in OT Scripture. Later OT authors, and especially NT writers, build on the basic understanding of these matters provided in Leviticus. The sacrificial features of Leviticus point to their ultimate, one-time fulfillment in the substitutionary death of Jesus Christ (Heb. 9:11–22). (Leviticus Overview)

 

Bernard J. Bamberger writes that "Jewish children once commenced their biblical studies with the Book of Leviticus. (The Torah, a Modern Commentary- Leviticus)

 

F. Duane Lindsey adds that "“The book of Leviticus was the first book studied by a Jewish child; yet is often among the last books of the Bible to be studied by a Christian.” (The Bible Knowledge Commentary)


Merrill F. Unger - “Genesis is the book of beginnings, Exodus the book of redemption, and Leviticus the book of atonement and a holy walk. In Genesis we see man ruined; in Exodus, man redeemed; in Leviticus, man cleansed, worshiping and serving.” (The New Unger's Bible Handbook)


R. K. Harrison - “Leviticus is thus a work of towering spirituality, which through the various sacrificial rituals points the reader unerringly to the atoning death of Jesus, our great High Priest. An eminent nineteenth-century writer once described Leviticus quite correctly as the seed-bed of New Testament theology, for in this book is to be found the basis of Christian faith and doctrine. The Epistle to the Hebrews expounds Leviticus in this connection, and therefore merits careful study in its own right, since in the view of the present writer it is preeminent as a commentary on Leviticus.” (Leviticus (Tyndale Old Testament Commentaries)

Barrick - The title means “pertaining to the Levites.” It is a carefully arranged reference manual for the Levitical priests. Ezra 6:18 refers to the Book of Leviticus. The only mention of the Levites in Leviticus is at 25:32-33. The Hebrew name is Wayyiqra’ the first word in its Hebrew text (= “And he called”). (Introduction to the Book of Leviticus)

 

Who wrote Leviticus? Here are the direct statements in Leviticus that support  the authorship by Moses: Lev 1:1; 4:1; 5:14; 6:1, 8, 19, 24; 7:22, 28, 38, Lev 8:1, Lev 11:1; 12:1; 13:1; 14:1, 33; 15:1, Lev 16:1, 2, Lev 17:1; 18:1; 19:1; 20:1; 21:1, 16; 22:1, 17, 26; 23:1, 9, 23, 26, 33; 24:1, 13,23, Lev 25:1, Lev 26:46, 27:1, 34. In sum, Moses clearly wrote Leviticus regardless of what the liberal scholars claim God revealed the contents of Leviticus to Moses on Mt. Sinai (cf. Lev 26:46; 27:34) which may have occurred during the 50-day period after the Tabernacle was erected (Ex 40:17), but before the Israelites departed from Mt. Sinai (Nu 10:11).


Gleason Archer adds that “No other book in the Bible affirms divine inspiration so frequently as Leviticus. Under the heading of the verb to speak (dibbër) alone, the concordance lists no less than thirty-eight occurrences of the statement that Jehovah spoke to Moses or to Aaron.” (A Survey of Old Testament Introduction-)

Paul Van Gorder summarizes the seven feasts in Leviticus 23:1-44 - Leviticus 23 outlines the sacred calendar of redemption. These seven feasts in the Jewish year foretell and set forth the plan of salvation from the death of Christ through His millennial reign. They give us in sequence the different stages in God's redemptive scheme. I suggest that you study carefully the details of each feast named in Leviticus 23, for they are ''a shadow of things to come'' (Colossians 2:17).
The Feast of Passover (Lev 23:4,5).
The history of redemption begins with the Passover. To Israel this was the first feast and the beginning of months to them. This feast commemorated their deliverance from Egypt, and 1Corinthians 5:7 says that ''Christ, our Passover, is sacrificed for us.'' There is no way to God apart from the work of Christ upon the cross. We can know nothing of holiness, rest, or fellowship except on redemption ground. And that begins with Passover.
The Feast of Unleavened Bread (Lev 23:6-8).
This feast began on the next day after the Passover and continued for 7 days. It was closely associated with Passover because the Israelites ate the roast lamb and the unleavened bread that night in Egypt (Ex 12:8). The blood was the foundation of fellowship with God; the feeding upon the lamb was the means of maintaining fellowship. Unleavened bread speaks of holiness, the condition necessary for the enjoyment of fellowship. ''For even Christ, our Passover, is sacrificed for us. Therefore, let us keep the feast'' (1Cor 5:7,8). Fellowship is established on the basis of the applied blood. But fellowship is maintained as we walk in holiness of life, obedient to God.
The Feast of Firstfruits (Lev 23:9-14).
1Corinthians 15:20 states, ''But now is Christ risen from the dead and become the firstfruits of them that slept.'' The feast of firstfruits represents His resurrection. At the beginning of the harvest, the Israelites cut a sheaf of grain and brought it to the priest, who waved it before the Lord. He did this to show that it was accepted by God on the sinner's behalf (Lev 23:11). [Note that Christ was raised 'on the day after the sabbath'.] Christ's resurrection has been accepted by God for us and is the guarantee of our own.
The Feast of Wave Loaves, or Pentecost (Lev 23:15-22).
This feast took place 50 days after the feast of firstfruits. Its New Testament fulfillment is found in Acts chapter 2. Fifty days after the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, the Holy Spirit descended upon waiting Jewish believers. Later, the same was experienced in the household of Cornelius, a Gentile. Both Jews and Gentiles were formed into one body, the church the body of Christ. The wave-loaf offering consisted of two loaves baked with leaven. Its counterpart, the church, has in it leaven (evil) because of the old nature of its members. Although evil is present, it has been taken care of by a burnt offering, a sin offering, and a peace offering. This feast therefore pictures the Holy Spirit's descent at Pentecost to bind the waiting believers into one body.
The Feast of Trumpets (Lev 23:23-25).
This event was observed on the first day of the seventh month. A long interval of 4 months stood between the feast of Pentecost and the feast of trumpets. This interval corresponds to the present church age. There were always two trumpets in Israel: one for assembly and another for war. 1 Corinthians 15:52 says, ''The trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible.'' Likewise, Matthew 24:31 states, ''He shall send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together His elect.'' One trumpet sounds for the rapture of the church; another trumpet sounds for the gathering of Israel. Please read and compare Isaiah 18:3,4; 27:12,13; Joel 2:15-17.
The Day of Atonement (Lev 23:26-32).
This feast closely followed the feast of trumpets, occurring on the tenth day of the seventh month. The sacrifices of that day included a sin offering and a burnt offering for Aaron and his house; and two goats for a sin offering and a ram for a burnt offering for the congregation. The blood of the slain goat, sprinkled within the veil, pictures the [satisfaction] of the claims of God's justice. The live goat that was led away into the wilderness pictures our Lord bearing away our sins. Three characteristics were evident in the celebration of atonement: first, affliction of soul (Zechariah 12:10-14; Jeremiah 8:20); second, atonement for sin (Zech 13:1); and third, rest from labor [Heb 4:9,10]. Just as the day of atonement closed with the appearance of the high priest from behind the veil, so Israel's future day of atonement will be climaxed with the appearance of their Messiah, the Lord Jesus Christ, from heaven.
The Feast of Tabernacles (Lev 23:33-44).
The time setting for this feast is given in Deuteronomy 16:13, ''After thou hast gathered in thy grain and thy wine.'' The fruit of the field and the vintage of the earth-- after these two are harvested, this feast is celebrated. The feast speaks of the millennial reign of Christ. There will be a time of rejoicing over a regathered and redeemed Israel. (Be sure to read of that important time in Zechariah 14:16-21). Life's battles will finally be over. Sword and spear will be changed into instruments of peace. Every man will sit under his own vine and fig tree, enjoying a balanced economy (Micah 4:4). Earth's glorious sabbath of 1,000 years will have begun. Throughout the book of Leviticus, we are given glimpses of the holiness that is ours as God's redeemed, the holiness that becomes ours through a life of obedience, and the perfect holiness that will be ours in the
Millennial Age to come. (OT Reflections of Christ - Leviticus)

 

Henry Morris - Leviticus is the central book of the Pentateuch and like the others was written by Moses. It continues the narrative of the book of Exodus, where the glory of God is upon the tabernacle at the end of Exodus. Leviticus begins as God is speaking to Moses out of the tabernacle (Exodus 40:38; Leviticus 1:1)....A remarkable phenomenon in Leviticus is the large percentage of the book that consists of verbatim quotations from God Himself. All the Bible is divinely inspired, but the particular method of inspiration varied widely from book to book. In this particular case, these portions of the book have actually been divinely dictated.

 

R Kent Hughes has the following story regarding the conversion of the great 19th century preacher Charles Simeon - Charles Simeon, one of the greatest preachers of the Church of England, explained his coming to Christ like this: "As I was reading Bishop Wilson on the Lord’s supper, I met with an expression to this effect—“That the Jews knew what they did, when they transferred their sin to the head of their offering.” The thought came into my mind, “What, may I transfer all my guilt to another? Has God provided an Offering for me, that I may lay my sins on His head? Then, God willing, I will not bear them on my own soul one moment longer.” Accordingly I sought to lay my sins upon the sacred head of Jesus".  (From Hebrews: an anchor for the soul)

LEVITICUS

This little-studied book has an amazing message that's practical and applicable to us today. The God who brought the children of Israel out of the bondage of Egypt kept His promised Covenant, gave them His statutes and ordinances, established a priesthood, and gave His people a pattern for the tabernacle where He might dwell among them. This study will provide tremendous insights into how on earth we can be holy and approach the Holy of Holies to worship Him properly.  7 weeks, 7 lessons

Dr Barrick's Recommended Best Commentaries on Leviticus (in Order of Priority)
 
 Mark Rooker. Leviticus. New American Commentary. Nashville, Tenn.: Broadman & Holman Publishers, 2000. The “Introduction” is superb in Rooker’s lucid critique of liberal criticism. He maintains a rock solid stand on Mosaic authorship. Rooker often presents major interpretive issues by specifying the various views and then eliminating them one by one until only one interpretation remains that best resolves the problem.

 R. K. Harrison. Leviticus: An Introduction and Commentary. Tyndale Old Testament Commentaries. Downers Grove, Ill.: Inter-Varsity Press, 1980. In this compact volume Harrison presents an evangelical commentary on Leviticus with a brief (but adequate) introduction. His focus is on the relevance of Leviticus for today’s Christian.
 
Gordon J. Wenham. The Book of Leviticus. New International Commentary on the Old Testament. Grand Rapids, Mich.: William B. Eerdmans Publishing Company, 1979. This commentary was perhaps the catalyst for the other works listed here. It is well-written with a bold approach to key subjects (e.g., the clean-unclean and holy-profane categories). Each chapter concludes with a discussion of its relationship to the New Testament and Christianity. It occasionally suffers from exegetical malnutrition.

 Allen P. Ross. Holiness to the LORD: A Guide to the Exposition of the Book of Leviticus. Grand Rapids, Mich.: Baker Academic, 2002. For each section of the text of Leviticus Ross provides a brief introduction, a discussion of theological ideas, an analysis of structure, a synthesis and outline, the development of the exposition, and concluding observations. Most chapters conclude with a select bibliography of books, essays, and journal articles focused on the major topic or theme of the passage under discussion.

John E. Hartley. Leviticus. Word Biblical Commentary. Dallas, Tex.: Word Books, Publisher, 1992. Hartley’s commentary is a detailed exegetical commentary on the Hebrew text of Leviticus. He introduces each section of the text with a scholarly bibliography. Then he provides a translation with notes and a brief discussion of “Form/Structure/Setting” before giving comments on the text. Most sections are concluded by an “Explanation” summarizing the basic thought of the passage, its theological implications, and giving discussion of New Testament relationships.

Warren W. Wiersbe. Be Holy: Becoming “Set Apart” for God. Chariot Victor Books, 1994. The driving force behind this brief expository commentary is application to believers today.

R. Laird Harris. “Leviticus.” In The Expositor’s Bible Commentary, 12 vols. Ed. by Frank E. Gaebelein, 2:499-654. Grand Rapids, Mich.: Zondervan Publishing House, 1990). Fairly extensive in his discussion of introductory problems, Harris is less forthcoming when it comes to the details of the text itself. However, the commentary is exegetical and worthy of reference.

Preface

Spurgeon's comment: Very precious. Mr. Andrew Bonar has a keen eye for a typical analogy, but he always keeps the rein upon his imagination, and is therefore safe to follow. He is a master in Israel.

Rosscup: This is a reprint of a work which Spurgeon described as “very precious.” Bonar treats the text in an expository and practical way, with critical notes. He is thoroughly conservative, and rich in application. Many regard this as the best older work on Leviticus from a conservative writer.

The Baptist Memorial and Monthly Record: He expounds each verse in course, and presents practical considerations of great importance. We commend the volume to clergymen and families as exceedingly valuable. Bonar employs similitudes and allegories to expound on the principles held in Leviticus.

The Churchman's Monthly Review: Mr. Bonar's commentary on Leviticus is full of devout thought, and discovers a high appreciation of the distinguishing peculiarities of the Gospel.

Gospel Coalition: No book in the Bible contains more of the very words of God than Leviticus, Bonar observes. His commentary, though based on sound exegesis, is marked by simplicity. He makes spiritual application, for, as he says, 'The gospel of the grace of God, with all that follows in its train, may be found in Leviticus. This is the glorious attraction of the book to every reader who feels himself a sinner.'

Adam Clarke
Commentary
Leviticus

Clarke (1760-1832) was Methodist, Wesleyan, Arminian, (e.g., Clarke "suggested that although God can know all future events, He chooses not to know some events beforehand" Baker Encyclopedia of the Bible, page 808). He did not always interpret Scripture literally and so was amillennial (to quote Clarke on 1000 years - "I am satisfied that this period should not be taken literally" [see comment on Rev 20:4] - he interpreted Revelation as a Historicist) which led him to interpret the church as fulfilling many OT promises to Israel. Influential in development of doctrine of Entire Sanctification (or "Christian perfection"). Affirmed the authority and sufficiency of Scripture, but held a belief of "plenary dynamic inspiration" (idea of every thought inspired), thus falling short of "plenary verbal inspiration" (every single word inspired) (Bib. Sacra: Vol 125, p 163, 1968). In summary, a useful, respected commentary but as with all extra-Biblical resources you are advised to "Be a Berean!" Acts 17:11

The Expositor's Bible
1903
Leviticus
Samuel H Kellogg
Recommended
Table of Contents

Warren Wiersbe one of the most respected modern commentators wrote: If you can locate the six-volume edition of the Expositor’s Bible, buy it immediately! It takes up less space than the original fifty-volume set, and not everything in the original set is worth owning. Samuel H. Kellogg on Leviticus is a classic; so is Alexander Maclaren on the Psalms and on Colossians.

Cyril J. Barber in The Minister’s Library wrote: This set, originally published in 1903, contains expositions by both conservative and liberal theologians. The most important works are by Dod (Genesis), Chadwick (Exodus and Mark), Kellogg (Leviticus), Blaikie (Joshua, I and II Samuel), Adeney (Ezra, Nehemiah and Esther), Maclaren (Psalms), Moule (Romans), Findlay (Galatians and Ephesians), Plummer (Pastoral Epistles and the Epistles of James and Jude), and Milligan (Revelation.)

Who is Dr Johnson?

Dr Johnson cautions - "There is a danger, and we all know that, of having an overactive imagination when we come to biblical typology. And, frequently, things that Bible students see in the New Testament as reflective of the Old Testament are things that it is very difficult to see. And so we have been taught to be very careful when we’re talking about typology." (David, Mephibosheth and Unmerited Grace)

Leviticus

The Law of the Offerings. London (1870)

Spurgeon's comment: A very condensed, instructive, refreshing book. It will open up new trains of thought to those unversed in the teaching of the types.

Rosscup: This famous work deals exclusively with Leviticus 1–7, explaining the offerings and the laws regulating them. Devotional in character.

Types in General
Burnt Offering - Leviticus 1
Meat Offering - Leviticus 2
Peace Offering - Leviticus 3, 7:11-21, 29-34
Sin Offering - Leviticus 4, 5:1-3
Trespass Offering - Leviticus 5:14-19, 6:1-7
Offerings as a Whole - 1Peter 4:1, Romans 12:1-2

Keil & Delitzsch Commentary
on Leviticus

Spurgeon's comment: Keil’s works are valuable helps towards obtaining the meaning of the text; but for spiritual reflections and fruitful hints we must look elsewhere. A work for the learned. It has received the highest commendations from competent scholars. But it is somewhat dull and formal.

Review of Holiness to the LORD- A Guide to the Exposition of the Book of Leviticus - Holiness to the Lord (click to read more reveiws) belongs in the library of every serious expositor. Its level-headed approach to exegetical and expositional difficulties, clear theological comment, and practical guidance are a welcome breath of fresh air for a book that too many have allowed to grow stale. We can only hope that Allen Ross will produce similar volumes on the remainder of the Pentateuch, to provide a complete guide for expounding the Torah."

CAUTION: As with all sermons and commentaries, one needs to maintain an Acts 17:11 "Berean mindset," but this caveat is especially true when the resource begins to speak of typology. In fact, you would do well to read our review of this somewhat "problematic" interpretative area -  see Typology - Study of Biblical types.

R Kent Hughes records an anecdotal story of Simeon's conversion that relates to the Book of Leviticus and its emphasis on offerings: "As I was reading Bishop Wilson on the Lord’s supper, I met with an expression to this effect—“That the Jews knew what they did, when they transferred their sin to the head of their offering.” The thought came into my mind, “What, may I transfer all my guilt to another? Has God provided an Offering for me, that I may lay my sins on His head? Then, God willing, I will not bear them on my own soul one moment longer.” Accordingly I sought to lay my sins upon the sacred head of Jesus."
