To many, Leviticus is difficult to understand and can seem distant from contemporary life. In reality, it has much to teach Christians about God, sin, holiness, worship, and ethical living, and it provides the framework for greater understanding of Christ’s atoning work. Joe Sprinkle offers historical and cultural information, in addition to insightful commentary on the text, in order to help any teacher bring Leviticus alive for today’s audience.
Numbers tells of the journey from Sinai to the Jordan and of the rebellion of the people that led to forty years of wilderness wandering. This commentary helps the reader navigate the lists, laws, and narratives of Numbers in order to illuminate the important lessons of Numbers that apply today: the dangers of disobedience, the fulfillment of God’s promises, the importance of godly leadership, and God’s commitment to his people.
