The most important things for Christians to read in Leviticus as they keep reappearing in the New Testament, are: “Be holy for I am holy” and “Love your neighbour as yourself”. There are over ninety references to Leviticus in the New Testament. God didn’t give reasons for all His rules. If you will only obey a command when you see the sense of it, you are not obedient and do not trust the one who gave you the command. God knows best. He has very good reasons for His commands. Modern man wants to know the point of it. God wants obedient, trusting children. God does give punishments for disobedience. There are rewards for obedience, blessings for those who trust and obey, but a curse on those who disobey. You could lose your home, your citizenship or even your life. God is saying the only way to be really happy is to be really holy. The sinfulness of man is not just in polluting clean things but in profaning holy things. There is a shift from the Old Testament to the New Testament. Holiness is moved from material things to moral things. Jesus said, “It’s not what goes into your mouth now that makes you unclean, but what comes out”. The other shift is that rewards and punishments are moved from this life to the next. This life is only the preparation for a much longer life elsewhere.
