Product Description

Leviticus used to be the first book that Jewish children studied in the synagogue. In the modern church it tends to be the last part of the Bible that anyone looks at seriously. Because Leviticus is largely concerned with subjects that seem incomprehensible and irrelevant today , rituals for sacrifice and regulations concerning uncleanness, it appears to have nothing to say to twenty-first-century Christians.In this excellent commentary on Leviticus, Gordon Wenham takes with equal seriousness both the plain original meaning of the text and its abiding theological value. To aid in reconstructing the original meaning of the text, Wenham draws from studies of Old Testament ritual and sacrifice that compare and contrast biblical customs with the practices of other Near Eastern cultures. He also closely examines the work of social anthropologists and expertly utilizes the methods of literary criticism to bring out the biblical author'sspecial interests.In pursuit of his second aim, to illumine the enduring theological value of Leviticus, Wenham discusses at the end of each section how the Old Testament passages relate to the New Testament and to contemporary Christianity. In doing so, he not only shows how pervasive Levitical ideas are in the New Testament but also highlights in very practical ways the enduring claim of God's call to holiness on the lives of Christians today.

    Very deep by analyzing the text, structure and context. But very practical, in the end of each chapter there is a "connection" between the chapter and its subject with the New Testament and it makes the commentary extremely important to understand how the Old Testament can be relevant.

    I definitely recommend it!

    Wenham is a respected Evangelical Old Testament scholar. The NICOT commentary on Leviticus may be his best work to date. It is enlightening, informative, and accessible. It rests on solid scholarship and includes enough detail for all but the most serious specialist. There are now a number of quality commentaries on Leviticus with various strengths and limitations (e.g. Bellinger, Harrison, Hartley, Kaiser, Milgrom, & Rooker). Wenham's volume deserves a place among the best of that list.

    this commentary delivers, he takes what has been written before, and adds serious contributions. i especially like that his scholarship transverses both testaments, which allow him reflective insight in ways that Jesus relates to all aspects of the word of God, which his life illumines...Wenham is a serious scholar and an excellent communicator of ideas. Bringing O.T. ritual into Christological relief is easy when it is obvious, this guy however digs deep, a fine addition to my working library. jbm

    Keith Mathison of Ligonier Ministries gives high praise to this commentary, 'This commentary is not only the best commentary on the book of Leviticus, it is one of the best commentaries on any book of the Bible that I have read.'

    Scholarly, clear, comprehensive and profoundly interesting! If you think Leviticus has little to say to the Church of the 21st century, then you need this commentary! The background and historical details are thorough, the typology is clearly set forth and Wenham points out rich application in each chapter. In my opinion, this is the commentary to get on Leviticus!
