Item description for The Message Of Leviticus: Free To Be Holy (Bible Speaks Today) by Derek Tidball...

Overview
For most Christians today, there is no message of Leviticus, for Leviticus goes unread. Yet Leviticus was the first priority in Jewish instruction of the law of Moses. Jesus and his hearers knew Leviticus well and took its teachings to heart. The documentary hypothesis that reigned supreme over Pentateuchal studies for most of the twentieth century undercut the internal coherence of Leviticus that swayed the Jews of the New Testament period, speculating that rather than originating with Moses, Leviticus was the nostalgic revisionist history of Judaic reformers in exile. But more recently, such theories have fallen from favor, and Leviticus is being reconsidered for its historical representation of the ancient and foundational era of the Jews. Derek Tidball explores the picture in Leviticus of Israel being brought together under the law of Moses. Here is a definitive presentation of what life as the people of God was to be like: the civic, cultic, religious, moral, legal, family and ritual expectations of the covenant community. In accessible prose, Tidball reveals the message brought to the Jews by Leviticus in their day, making room for us to grasp its message to us in our day.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Message Of Leviticus: Free To Be Holy (Bible Speaks Today)?

Free to Be Holy  Jul 5, 2006
Tidball brings the various theories and interpretations together in a helpful and applicable manner. Tidball's commentary is one of the few recent commentaries on Leviticus to draw together both edges of the hermeneutical horizon (what it meant and what it means). This book will be a great asset to anyone's library who wishes to understand the book of Leviticus.
