A Word from the General Editor

Life is God's gift.  He fashioned every person in his or her mother's womb.  Each of us is "fearfully and wonderfully made" (Ps. 139:14).  At conception, we begin to live.  As we grow, we learn how to live.

This quarter we will study the Books of Exodus and Leviticus.  These biblical books are about life.  That is why they go together.  Exodus describes the new life the Israelites received when the Lord rescued them from Egypt.  Leviticus explains how God further taught them to live holy lives for His glory.

In Exodus, God set the Israelites free from bondage.  He said, "I am the LORD, and I will bring you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians, and I will rid you out of their bondage, and I will redeem you with a stretched out arm...I will take you to me for a people, and I will be to you a God" (Ex. 6:6-7).

In Leviticus, through His laws, God told His people how to live holy lives.  He said, "ye shall be holy unto me: for I the LORD am holy, and have severed you from other people" (Lev. 20:26).
Together, Exodus and Leviticus make for a powerful study.  As you work through these fascinating books, may you leave behind the old life of sin and bondage and begin a new life for God's glory through Jesus Christ!
