Venom Removal Series – Leviticus 1 starts the new series of Leviticus. After our Venom Removal Series of Genesis and Exodus, we are moving to the next book of the Bible.

Introduction

In the book of exodus, we learnt that Moses had finished building the tabernacle (Exodus 40). However, exodus ended by informing its readers that as the glory of God came inside the tabernacle, Moses could not enter it (Exo 40:35).

34 Then the cloud covered the tent of meeting, and the glory of the Lord filled the tabernacle. 35 Moses could not enter the tent of meeting because the cloud had settled on it, and the glory of the Lord filled the tabernacle.

Exo 40:34-35

Now in the opening section of Leviticus, we read that God spoke to Moses from out of the tabernacle (Moses was outside the tabernacle). Moses was still unable to commune with God from within the tent.

And the Lord called unto Moses, and spake unto him out of the tabernacle of the congregation, saying,

Lev 1:1

Then as we continue reading Leviticus, we find that it is only after the offering of sacrifice was finished (Leviticus 8), that Moses and Aaron were able to enter the tabernacle (Lev 9:23).

And Moses and Aaron went into the tabernacle of the congregation, and came out, and blessed the people: and the glory of the Lord appeared unto all the people.

Lev 9:23

Therefore, we see that after the sacrifice was pleasing and accepted by the Lord, Moses was able to enter into the taberancle.

The book of Leviticus thus deals with methods, procedures and manner by which the sons of Adam could reconcile with God. The sons of Adam, which were banished from the presence of God in Garden of Eden, were now shown the path by which they could regain the lost fellowship. The book of Leviticus is therefore called the gospel in the Old Testament.

Just as the good news of the gospel enables us to reconcile with God, so did the book of Leviticus in the Old Testament, enabled Israelites to regain the lost fellowship of God with children of Adam. God, now began dwelling with people. However, this fellowship required maintenance. And Leviticus deals with “know-how” of how to maintain this relationship. These ‘know-how’ are sanctification process described via sacrifice, festivals, and other laws of cleansing. In this series, we will study all these rituals of sacrifices, festivals and laws of purity, and how they were acting as tutor to lead people to Christ Jesus.

Structuring of the book of Leviticus

In this Venom Removal Series – Leviticus 1, we would like to give you a brief overview of the book of Leviticus. The book of Leviticus is divided into 27 chapters. The Book can be symmetrically divided into two parts, with each part having 3 subparts, of Sacraments, priestly instructions and purity laws.

See the picture below. The first seven chapter deals with various sacrifices and so does it’s the second half (chapter 23 and 25) deals with the Sacraments of festivals and certain days. Similarly, chapter 8 to 10 and 21 to 22 deals with priestly instruction and chapter 11 to 15 along with 18 to 20 deals with laws of purity. The central section of the book (Leviticus 16-17) deals with the Day of Atonement in which annual sacrifice was made once a year for sins of all the Israelites. The structure of the book is explained by the picture below;

New Testament Apostles vs TPM’s False Apostles

In this article(Venom Removal Series – Leviticus 1), We begin our Christo-Centric study of Leviticus, we will once again highlight the venomous teaching of TPM and contrast it with pure teachings of scriptures. We will ask our readers to compare the teachings of New Testament writers with the writers of TPM doctrine and teachings. According to fraud pioneers of TPM, the book of Leviticus pointed to ‘higher order of New Testament ministry of TPM.’

They taught this teaching to their children and published doctrinal books on the same (check this, check this too ). They have coined this term ‘higher-order New Testament ministry’ to make people think that it was the TPM Special Ministry of sanctifying people which was in the mind of God when he gave the book of Leviticus.

They teach that all the offerings described in Leviticus (Lev 1 to 7) are a shadow of the TPM apostles getting sacrificed for sins and sanctification of the TPM believers. But a careful reader of the New Testament knows that the writers of the New Testament have clearly explained that the laws of Leviticus pointed to Jesus Christ alone and not to themselves as some kind of partner of Christ. 

Who serve unto the example and shadow of heavenly things, as Moses was admonished of God when he was about to make the tabernacle: for, See, saith he, that thou make all things according to the pattern shewed to thee in the mount.

Heb 8:5

Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.

Col 2:17

Compare all that we will study in this series with TPM teachings exposed in previous articles (The Poison of TPM 1, The Poison of TPM2, ).

We have also tabularized the direct usage of Leviticus terminologies by New Testament authors in the table below;   

Sl NoLeviticusCorresponding Reference in NT
11- Laws of clean and unclean food (Lev 11)write value. 2- Festivals and various feasts (Lev 23, 25).Therefore, let no one judge you in matters of food and drink (Lev 11, 17), or with respect to a festival (Lev 23), a new moon (Num 28:11), or a Sabbath day (Lev 25). These are a shadow of the things to come, but the reality belongs to Christ (Col 2:16-17)
2Sacrifices (Lev 1-7)For by ONE offering HE hath perfected FOREVER them that are sanctified. (ONE offering once FOREVER in contrasted to multiple times and multiple types mentioned in Lev 1-7) (Hebrews 10:14) I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service (Rom 12:1).
3Tabernacle and PriesthoodWriter of Hebrews 5 to Hebrews 8 says that sum of his speech is that all of priestly ministry points to ministry of Jesus as our High priest. Now the main point in what we are saying is this, we do have this kind of high priest, who sat down at the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in heaven and who serves in the sanctuary, the true tabernacle set up by the Lord and not by any human (Heb 8:1-2).
4Sprinkling of blood (Lev 1:5, 1:11, 3:2, 3:8, 4:6, 5:9 etc.,)Elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ (see sprinkling in Lev 1:5, 3:2 etc): Grace unto you, and peace, be multiplied (1 Pet 1:2).
5Purification from iniquities washing by water, use of hyssop and scarlet wool and other activities of cleansing using blood & oilNT writers used words like cleanse, sanctify, purify, purge extensively to refer to cleansing activities mentioned in Leviticus. Sanctification work of Jesus Father and Holy Spirit, by blood, water, faith, word, truth (Ephesians 5:26, Jude 1:1, I Corinth 1:2, Rom 15:16, Heb 13:12, 2:11, Acts 26:18, I Pet 1:2 etc)

Various Sacrifices for Sanctification

There is five types of sacrifices mentioned in the book of Leviticus from chapter 1 to 7. They are Burnt offering, Grain offering, Peace offering, Trespass offering and Sin-offering. Kindly watch the video below for Christ-centric explanation of various sacrifices.

    Excellent Article 👌 Sir,
    Explaining Romans 10:4
    Christ is the culmination of the law so that there may be righteousness for everyone who believes.
    I have a question regarding the following interpretations,
    Recently I was looking into “The Gospel of Christ”
    And there are two truths I found which were astonishing :
    1) Romans 5:8 & 9
    God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
    Since we have now been justified by his blood.
    Afterwards Apostle Paul explains “The driving force to strive against Sin in the life of beliver is the love of God” in Chapter 5 it’s written for Salvation, in Chapter 6 & 7 love of God which enables us for progressive sanctification. And in Romans 8 we see that without the “Purity of Mind” a believer do have carnal desires and would love according to Flesh.
    2) we see that “Trinitarian view of the Gospel” in Roman 5 we see Sin is ruling but nowhere in the scripture till Romans 8:23 we see the Rule of Sin has ended. But what we see in Roman 5 is because of “Christ who is crucified” Grace, Righteousness and Life is Ruling. In the Trinitarian view is, Grace of God the Father, Righteousness by believing Jesus Christ and Life in our Spirit by the Holy Spirit.
    There’s another scriptures suggest the same as well,
    Romans 5:5 God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us. V 8 &9God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Since we have now been justified by his blood.
    We are justified by believing in Christ and yet it is the “Love of God the Father” which confrons our sinfulness and that is the work of Holy Spirit, right there.
