The Concordia Commentary series enables pastors and teachers of the Word to proclaim the Gospel with greater insight and clarity. God speaks in Leviticus to give Israel His instructions for the divine service. His prescriptions for the many kinds of sacrifices are attended by His promises for the forgiveness of sins and life with Him. Purity and holiness come to God's people through His indwelling presence among them. This commentary has several unique features. It explores how each chapter of Leviticus finds its fulfillment in Jesus Christ--His earthly life, atoning death, resurrection, and ongoing ministry in the heavenly sanctuary now on behalf of His people on Earth. Using the method of ritual analysis, it examines the agents, enactment, and theological purpose of each of the instructions given in the divine speeches in Leviticus. The commentary on each pericope closes with a section on that specific text's "Fulfillment in Christ." A hymn quotation then sums up the theology of that pericope as it applies to the Christian faith and worship life of the church.
