Study the Book of Leviticus with this Printable

Learn how the book of Leviticus relates to the story of Moses and the coming of Jesus with this visual Leviticus printable.

THE LAWS OF LEVITICUS

We last left off with the Life of Moses in the book of Exodus. Moses’ life story is actually told over the course of 4 books:

  • Exodus: deliverance from Egypt
  • Leviticus: laws for Israelite living
  • Numbers: census of God’s people
  • Deuteronomy: Moses’ final speeches

If you grew up in church, you most likely have read the stories in Exodus. But most of the time, we skip over the next three books to get to the meatier part of the story in Joshua—when the Israelites FINALLY enter the promised land.

But let’s take a moment to pause and look over what’s happening in these three books, and take our time doing so. After all, they are included in the Bible, and surely God is teaching us more than a list of old outdated rules by including these in our records.

Follow along with me and see if I can’t inspire you to dig in deeper instead of glancing over the book of Leviticus.

THE BOOK OF LEVITICUS

Remember back in the book of Genesis when we learned that Jacob’s 12 sons formed the 12 tribes of Israel? Well the descendants of Levi (the Levites) were to become priests, meaning they would not receive a section of land, but would be provided for by the rest of the tribes. Their job was solely to provide guidance and be an intercessor between the Israelites and God.

Before the days of Jesus, the Israelites were to make sacrifices–constantly. There were multiple reasons they needed to do this:

  • Atonement for sins against the Lord / forgiveness
  • Restitution to God / giving first fruits
  • Thanksgiving and Praise / act of worship
  • Forgiveness for unintentional sins of ignorance / purity from uncleanliness
  • Guilt and Trespass offerings / fraud or mistreatment of others

MAKING SENSE OF ALL THE LISTS

In addition, there were all kinds of ceremonies and rituals–great feasts to plan that commemorated what God had done for his people:

  • Day of Atonement
  • The Sabbath
  • The Passover
  • Feast of Unleavened Bread
  • Feast of Weeks
  • Firstfruits
  • Feast of Trumpets
  • Feast of Tabernacles
  • The Sabbath Year
  • The Year of Jubilee

The Book of Leviticus is where each of these things are broken down and explained in detail. While we aren’t required to follow all these guidelines as Christians because of what Jesus did for us on the cross (more on that later…) it’s vital that you don’t skip these passages so that you can fully grasp the meaning and relevance of what he did by coming down to earth.

But for now, read through the book of Leviticus and use this handy printable to help you organize your thoughts as you go…

THE LIFE OF MOSES

If you remember from my Genesis outline, we learned about a few important characters:

  • Adam + Eve = Seth
  • Seth’s descendant = Noah
  • Noah’s son = Shem
  • Shem’s descendant = Abram
  • Abram’s son = Isaac
  • Isaac’s son = Jacob
  • Jacob’s 12 sons = 12 Tribes of Israel (Israelites)

The book of Genesis leaves off with Jacob’s sons being reconciled with their brother Joseph. Joseph had been sold off into slavery by his own brothers, and in a plot twist, becomes an Egyptian leader).

Centuries later, a new Pharaoh who knows nothing of Joseph is put in charge and he is threatened by the large number of Israelites (descendants of Jacob) that are living in Egypt. He enslaves them and later, all baby boys are to be murdered.

Enter the story of Moses…

Moses is an Israelite by birth, recused by an Egyptian princess who raises him as her son. When Moses is older, he sees an Egyptian mistreating an Israelite and kills him. Scared of the Pharaoh, he flees to the desert where he has an encounter from God to return and deliver the Israelites out of slavery…

FROM EXODUS TO DEUTERONOMY

The book of Exodus covers Moses’ birth to setting up the Tabernacle in the desert after the Israelites are freed from Egypt. Leviticus and Numbers are more detail-oriented about the instructions God gave the Israelites on how to live as his holy people (I will go into these specifics next month). Deuteronomy is a collection of Moses’ final days and 5 sermons he delivers to the people right before they finally enter the promised land.

I’ve created two printables as a resource for your study of the life of Moses. You may know the story of the 10 Plagues, but there was a whole lot more that went on once they reached the other side of the Red Sea.

I’M CREATING A UNIQUE OUTLINE OF THE ENTIRE BIBLE FOR YOU!

Due to the popularity of my Old and New Testament Timelines, I’m so excited to share more of the behind the scenes work I do in my own personal Bible study to present Biblical history and information in a visual and easy-to-understand way.

So…I’m doing it. I’m creating a PRINTABLE VISUAL OUTLINE OF THE ENTIRE BIBLE month by month until it’s done. Crazy? Maybe. Exciting? Yes!

My Bible is covered in notes from sermons, studies, Bible dictionaries, atlases, commentaries, and Biblical scholars. In trying to piece together the stories and timelines myself, it helps for me to see everything laid out in a simple format.

This Quickview Bible was my go to for making connections and diving into the historical events of the Bible rather than only going into study looking for answers to all of my many problems. But what I found was I wanted to combine all of the resources into one place where I could figure out how one book of the Bible fit together in the context of the greater story.

Keep reading to check out my very first book of the Bible outline in my Genesis printable!
