Leviticus

This book was so named because it treats of laws of service and worship of special importance to the Tribe of Levi. It has been aptly called “the Handbook of the Priests”. Many basic precepts of the New Testament are foreshadowed in this book, such as the seriousness of sin in God’s sight, the necessity of atonement for sin, the holiness of God, and the necessity of a mediator between God and man.
