A Study in Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy
Lessons 1 through 3 are from Leviticus and cover the three main responsibilities of God’s people: to have fellowship with Him (Lev. 1—10), to walk with Him (Lev. 11—24) and to please Him (Lev. 25—27). The book of Leviticus was the first book of study by a Jewish child. There are many significant types revealed in the sacrifices described. In fact, Leviticus is quoted in the New Testament about forty times. This third book of the Bible is named Leviticus because it pertains to the priestly ceremonies and institutions. It emphasizes the necessity of sacrifice for God’s people to approach Him.
The next three lessons are based on a study of the book of Numbers. This fourth book of the Bible records the history of the travels of the nation of Israel from Mount Sinai to the land of Canaan. Numbers records the experiences of God’s people as they followed His leadership, enjoyed His provision, learned His practical requirements and felt His discipline in judgment. The three lessons from the book of Numbers will focus on following God (Num. 1—10), failing God (Num. 11—20) and believing God (Num. 21—36). The English name of the book Numbers comes from the Greek name of the book in the Septuagint, Arithmoi, or numbers, because it contains so much numerical data. The Hebrew title of the book is “in the wilderness,” based on one word in Numbers 1:1.
The final 7 lessons focus on the book of Deuteronomy. The English title of this book, based on the Septuagint translation of the Greek word deuteronomion, is “copy of this law” (Deut. 17:18). It is the second Law or the Law re-given by Moses to the new generation. In these lessons, you will learn about God’s guidance, promise, commands, His deity, warnings, covenant and will. Here Moses preaches God’s Word and impresses it on the hearts of the people of Israel. He wanted them to renew their commitment to love, obey and serve God. He knew the only way they could enter and flourish in the Promised Land was to fully follow God and keep His Word. There are almost two hundred references to the “land” in Deuteronomy.
