Leviticus 17-27

17 - sacrifice only at the tabernacle; only blood atones, so don't eat it
18 - don't do like in Egypt or Canaan: incest, fornication, homosexuality
bestiality. I'm driving out the Canaanites because of these things
19 - laws of justice and mercy, mostly: love your neighbor
20 - death and exile for idolatry, sorcery, adultery, incest, bestiality
21 - priestly holiness: no defects or ritual impurity, only marry virgins
22-sacrifices accepted:no defects, only priest's immediate family eats
23-feasts:Sabbath,Passover, Firstfruits, Pentecost/Weeks, Trumpets
Day of Atonement, Tabernacles/Booths
24-oil for lamps, bread for table; death penalty for blasphemy, murder
25 - sabbath for land, Jubilee, rights to buy back property (or self from slavery) that had to be sold in poverty; permanent servitude allowed of foreigners, not of Israelites
26 - faithfulness to God brings blessing; disobedience brings curses
27-valuations to buy back persons/property given/consecrated to God

  1. I really like the summary. I just wrote a post about interpreting the book of Leviticus from a parent's point of view, which may be interesting for anyone with kids.
