Ok, so remember the sex talk Moses had with the boys in Chapter 15? This feels like a continuation of that. While the Lord tells Moses to give these regulations to all the people of Israel, most of these acts seem to be penis no-nos. Women are only mentioned once, in the very last rule… Continue reading Bible studies for writers | Leviticus 18

When we first moved to Thailand, we attended a church in a mall, and every Sunday after church, we’d go down to the mall’s food court for lunch. In Thailand, every mall has a food court, and every food court has a section that sells only Thai food. You can literally feed a family for… Continue reading Bible studies for writers | Leviticus 17

I feel like this is one of those “I told you so” speeches we have to give to our children sometimes after they do something really boneheaded that we warned them a thousand times not to do. The first sentence says that the Lord spoke to Moses “after the death of Aaron’s two sons.” So,… Continue reading Bible studies for writers | Leviticus 16

“Ewww, you nasty,” was the first thought that came to my mind when I started reading this chapter. Maybe that’s not the most mature attitude, but … truth. I feel like, too, that this chapter is dedicated to the brothers out there. I noticed that starting in verse 21, the text switches to third person:… Continue reading Bible studies for writers | Leviticus 15

What can we say about this chapter other than, “Whew! I’m glad we don’t have to slaughter stuff to be clean anymore!” Actually, there is a lot more to say about this chapter. Plus, it’s freakishly long, so I would feel guilty summing it up in one sentence. I was trying to read past the… Continue reading Bible studies for writers | Leviticus 14

So, not only is Aaron responsible for everything that happens inside the temple, but he also has to inspect everyone’s gross boils, zits and skin rashes. Another reason I’d never make it as a priest. Besides noting that Aaron served somewhat as a physician in addition to his priestly duties, I also was relating to… Continue reading Bible studies for writers | Leviticus 13

I used to see this short and sweet chapter as a curse against women, but now I see it as a well-deserved maternity leave and break! Perhaps it is the wording, which sounds like God is shunning a woman and cutting her off from society, but think about what it really means: this woman gets… Continue reading Bible studies for writers | Leviticus 12

Talk about eating clean! This chapter identifies what the Israelites’ diet should look like in order for them to remain holy like God. It also can be quite confusing and has been extremely controversial for new Christians, anti-Christians and just about any person who has ever picked up the Bible or heard about Old Testament… Continue reading Bible studies for writers | Leviticus 11

I feel like this chapter could stand alone as a short story. How my heart aches and breaks for Aaron. Why didn’t his kids just listen??? If you have children, you may be able to resonate with Aaron today. What could he do when God burned up two of his children for disobeying clear instruction?… Continue reading Bible studies for writers | Leviticus 10

The time has come to get this show on the road! This is a beautiful chapter that shows Moses’ leadership, Aaron’s willingness and God’s glory. Moses even tells us specifically in verse 6 that the Israelites have done all these things “so that the glory of the Lord may appear to you.” And that He… Continue reading Bible studies for writers | Leviticus 9
