Leviticus intro

We get the name from the Greek translation Leuitikos, meaning “relating to the Levites”. However, the Hebrew name for the book is Vayikra, meaning “He called”. This refers to the first words in the book, when God called Moses.

Leviticus covers some of the most difficult chapters in the entire Bible, human uncleanness, while covering some of the most sacred, atonement.

Quoted 11 times in the New Testament, with 6 Messianic prophesies.
