Learning to Love Leviticus (June)

Dates:  Thursdays, June 2nd, 9th, 16th, and 23rd

Time: 2-4pm

Instructor: Jesse Coyne 

Location: Athens College Of Ministry; **offered virtually and in-person

Materials:  none needed


Many a heartfelt attempt to read through the Bible from Genesis to Revelation has floundered on the treacherous shores of one of the Bible’s most difficult and misunderstood books.  When most Christians think of Leviticus–if they ever do–their minds are filled with laws, legalism, and loads of other things they don’t have to worry about anymore because of Jesus’ work on the cross. While there is some truth to that—though not quite in a way we think–Leviticus is actually a testimony of God’s love, leniency, and longing for a brighter future for His people.

Leviticus is both the literary and theological apex of the Pentateuch that expresses God’s great desire to dwell with His people through a language and system that is often foreign to us and yet, in a sense, deeply familiar as well.  As we pull back the curtains of the Tabernacle together, we’ll discover a God who is more recognizable as fully expressed in the person and work of Jesus than we may have previously thought.

WEEK 1:  Locating Leviticus:  How does Leviticus fit in the biblical story? (What is the purpose of Leviticus? Why does it appear where it does in the biblical story?)

WEEK 2:  Levites & Love Offerings: Leviticus 1-9 (What was the purpose of the sacrificial system?  What does it reveal about the nature of God? How does it help us understand the sacrifice of joy?)

WEEK 3:  Leprosy & Lots: Leviticus 10-16 (What is the relationship between purity and holiness? Between purity and sin? What is the significance of the Day of Atonement for both the Old Testament and New Testament?)

WEEK 4:  Lying, Lamps, and Land: Leviticus 17-27 (What is the relationship between sacred space and sacred time? Why is the calendar such a significant piece of Leviticus?  In what ways do these sacred times anticipate Jesus?)
