I would like take this time to thank all of you my readers. This blog started from a life transformation group several years ago with just a few followers and now has grown to over 1,700 followers. I’ve found it to be a great tool in my journey through the Bible and you, my readers are keeping me accountable to daily Bible reading and study.
We live in a busy world with busy schedules and being able to share some thoughts about this journey with others across this world through the Internet is truly a blessing. Questions for Reflection will stimulate thought and offer ideas for applying biblical principles at work, at home, and in all we do.
Here is a link to all the devotionals done so far.
Anyone can join in as we journey together.
The reading plan below will be used to hold me accountable to sharing about God’s word. As I share about my study of the book of Leviticus over the next few weeks, it’s important to have a plan. I’m thankful that Jesus is God’s plan for us and by accepting Christ as Savior; we have taken the steps necessary to make this day amazing!
Questions for Reflection
What is the general rule for animals and birds allowed for food? What are the reasons for these dietary rules? What is the positive imperative for this passage? Is this imperative still in force today?
What are specific rules of hygiene embodied in these instructions? What is the meaning of circumcision (See Gen. 17:9-14)? What observation does this section offer to the assertion that “my private life is my own concern only?
What are the hygienic rules of this passage? Who is the examiner? What is the plight of the leper (contrast with 10:6)?
What is similar to the ritual described in this passage to the one in chapter 8 of the installation of the priests? What is the significance of the similarity? Are any obligations laid on you as a forgiven sinner?
Why is atonement necessary? In what way would the unclean man and woman defile God’s tabernacle? What does this passage reveal about God’s standards for purity?
Feel free to respond with a short note or a comment about any of the questions above. Also, I welcome any other thoughts or ideas, favorite inspirational videos, photos, or favorite Bible verses. Just add them to the comments or to a Facebook page I’ve set up at this link: This Day With God.
