Leviticus Notes Week 5

Reflection Questions (Ch 23-27)

  1. In Chapter 23, we see the Sabbath described as the first feast to the Lord. Why do you think the Sabbath is so important to the Lord? What does the Sabbath say about His values? What does this mean for you- The Sabbath for us today is not a commandment we are bound to; it’s a promise we’re invited to.”
  2. The Feast of First Fruits occurred just a couple days after the Passover was celebrated. What was the original purpose of the Feast of First Fruits? What was the significance of Jesus’ resurrection coinciding with the Feast of the First Fruits?
  3. What was the purpose of the Feast of Weeks (or Pentecost)? What was the significance of this feast coinciding with the day of Pentecost for the Christian believers?
  4. What was to occur during the year of Jubilee and what was its purpose? In quoting Isaiah 6 before the synagogue, what did Jesus claim (Luke 4:17)? What does His claim mean for us as believers?
  5. What were some of the blessings promised to the Israelites for obedience? Of all the provisions, what was the greatest blessing offered to the Israelites? How has God fulfilled this promise still today for the Christian believer?
  6. Just as the Israelites were given a promised inheritance, followers of Christ have been offered a promised inheritance. What are some of the promises we have received through Jesus? In our own lives, what can we learn from the Israelites’ journey to their promised land?
  7. Was there any new insight you got from this week’s lesson or last week’s reading?

Leviticus Notes Week 4

Reflection Questions

  1. In Chapters 17-18, we covered the laws that the Lord instituted governing the place of sacrifices, against eating blood and against unlawful sexual relations. Why were these three practices specifically addressed through the institution of these laws? What did the Lord promise for those who “keep” and “do” these laws?
  2. In these laws, God addresses marriage faithfulness, why do you think this is so important to Him?  How does Jesus affirm the Lord’s great love for us? As Christians, what is our model of distinction from the world?
  3. Chapter 19 goes on to cover extensive laws governing moral purity which expand on the original ten commandments. These laws show us how “to be holy as He is holy”. How do these laws of moral purity demonstrate God’s values and His nature/ character? 
  4. Just as these laws revealed to us what God cared for, Jesus demonstrated this in how He lived and died for us. What are some ways that Jesus demonstrated these same values? How are we, as followers of Christ, called to respond to Jesus’ example of love and holiness?
  5. Chapters 21 and 22 describe the strict regulations of holiness for the priests and the offerings. Why were the priests and sacrifices under more stringent regulations of holiness?
  6. How do the laws surrounding the holiness of the priests and sacrifices bring us to appreciate Christ’s sacrifice? What does His perfect sacrifice mean for us today and in the future? How should this affect how we live?
  7. Was there any new insight you got from this week’s lesson or last week’s reading?

WEEK 3

Week 3- VIdeo Lesson

Read: Leviticus 12-16

Jesus in All Leviticus- YouVersion Devotional: Days 8-9

Leviticus Notes Week 3

Reflection questions 

  1. In Chapters 12-15, we see many ways Israelites could be deemed unclean. What were some ways that someone could be considered ritually unclean? We briefly mentioned moral impurity this week, what is the difference between the root of ritual impurity and moral impurity?
  2. What did ritual impurity symbolize? How could instituting rules that infiltrated many aspects of daily life, help to remind the Israelites of their need for moral purity? How did Jesus respond to ritual impurity and others who were considered less than whole (ie. woman who was bleeding in Luke 8, the paralytic from Luke 5, the blind man in John 9)?
  3. In Chapter 16, we see that the Israelites were to institute a yearly Day of Atonement. What was the purpose of this day and what were the Israelites instructed to do? 
  4. Why do you think this was the climax of the book of Leviticus and the Torah, why was this so important to God? Where is Jesus in the Day of Atonement? What is our Day of Atonement?
  5. How does the Day of Atonement fit into the greater picture of the Bible? What do these laws reveal about the values or heart of God? In light of God’s deep love and desire for a relationship with us, what is an appropriate response? How does this change us? 
  6. Was there any new insight you got from this week’s lesson or last week’s reading?

Personal Reflection:

In the Israelite towns that were uncovered below the soil without one pig bone, they were preserved as distinct. If we were to dig up what’s tucked away in our hearts, would there be evidence of the spirit of God at work in us? Would that evidence reveal to others that we were followers of Christ? Would it be so clear that we are distinct from the world around us?

Reflection Questions:

  1. What was the role of the priests and why was their consecration so important? How is Jesus our high priest and mediator? 
  2. What’s the difference between how Moses and Aaron came to God and how Aaron’s sons came to God? What does this say about how we should approach God?
  3. What does it mean to be sanctified? What does it mean to be glorified? What is the difference between the two? As the Lord said unto Moses “‘Among those who are near me I will be sanctified, and before all the people I will be glorified.”, what does this mean to you?
  4. In Peter’s vision (Acts 10) what did God tell Peter about the clean/unclean animals? What did Peter explain to the God fearing Gentiles in Cornelius’ home? What does this mean for us?
  5. What is holiness? Why does God call us to be holy? What is one thing in your life that you can do or change, to be more holy, more set apart for God?
  6. What came alive for you from this week’s lesson or last week’s reading? Was there anything new that struck you?
