Item description for Leviticus (Ep Study Commentary) by John Currid...
Overview The Book of Leviticus is indispensable for teaching the Christian the depth and heinousness of human sinfulness. It clearly highlights the doctrine of human total depravity. The chasm that separates a holy God from an unholy humanity stems from this pervasive iniquity. Yet, Leviticus holds out a promise that mankind can be made right with God and live according to his statutes. It truly underscores the love of God for his people, and that he has a plan of salvation for them. But one also realizes that the cultic system of Leviticus is insufficient and can not make people right with God. It points out that something greater is needed. It demands a final atonement. Thus, more than any other book of the Old Testament, Leviticus foreshadows and adumbrates the coming of the Messiah and his wondrous work of atonement.

Reviews - What do customers think about Leviticus (Ep Study Commentary)?
Hero of Old Testament Feb 25, 2007
Leviticus is a book of rules -- priestly rules for the ancient Jewish religion. For many Christians today, these rules seem strange and distant. What place do blood sacrifices and dietary laws have in our lives? Even though these rules are foreign to us today, I can assure you that Jesus can be found in the pages of Leviticus: as God, as worshipper, as Priest, as the sacrifice and even as the Tabernacle. Currid provides an easy-to-follow guide, explaining many of the details of Leviticus. He does a good job of connecting these ancient rituals to the once-for-all sacrifice made by Jesus.
