But even if you’re not, we hope you’ll take a moment to listen to what he has to say anyway.

Sabbath Years and Jubilee

The commands concerning the Sabbath years and the year of Jubilee are like most of the commands that were particular to the people of Israel at a particular time in their history, so we are no longer subject to those laws. However the principles behind those laws are still relevant for us.


The difference between “work” and “ordinary work”

In reading about the feasts in Leviticus 23, there is a distinction between doing “no work” and doing no “ordinary work” that we could easily miss. On the Sabbath and on the Day of Atonement, the people were to do “no work”. Two of the feasts – Passover and Firstfruits – have no restrictions at all about work. The remaining feasts – Unleavened Bread, Feast of Weeks, Feast of Trumpets, and Feast of booths – all have restrictions against “ordinary work”. So why the differences?


Living Distinct Lives

At the end of Leviticus 20, God reveals the purpose behind all the laws that He has been laying out up to that point. He wants his people to be distinct from the nations that He is going to conquer in order to give them the Promised Land.
