This week we begin our study of the 3rd book of the Torah, called Vayikra in Hebrew (also known as Leviticus). Ross sets out to provide a basis for all that will follow in the coming weeks and months as he teaches on the subjects found within this book that was anciently known as “Instructions for the priests.” He begins by giving an introduction to the book itself and then explores the subject of “sacrifice.” Is this book relevant for Bible believers today? After all, we no longer bring sacrifices. Ross answers many questions and resolves some of the greater theological conflicts associated with the contents of Leviticus in this week’s class. He provides a challenging approach to the idea that blood is required to attain forgiveness of sins. What is the true purpose of the priest? Was it primarily to slaughter the sacrifice? And what does God truly require of us? If sacrifices play such a dominant role in the Torah, what is a people seeking to return to God to do at this time when animal sacrifice no longer takes place? You will surprised and challenged by this teaching.
The dialogue for this class is also posted and we are pleased to finally have our new entrance and exit music attached to the teaching file.
