Leviticus 26 – Leviticus 27
I will be honest, I was a little bit disappointed in the ending of Leviticus. I guess I was hoping for a little bit more story to go with it. If you’ve been reading along, you’ve realized we didn’t get that. In fact, I had to look back to the very first verse to remember how it all started:
“The LORD summoned Moses and spoke to him from the tent of meeting, saying: ‘Speak to the people of Israel and say to them . . . ‘”
Not much of an introduction was there? From the very first verse, we quickly go into the laws and ordinances that God was giving. In the end, there doesn’t seem much of a need for a conclusion either. For what we get, is just about as simple as it all started:
“These are the commandments that the LORD gave to Moses for the people of Israel on Mount Sinai.”
(Leviticus 27: 34)
With that, we close yet another book. Three down and sixty-three to go!
Our next reading: Numbers 1-2
