We finish our reading in Leviticus and Hebrews this week.
In this second part of Leviticus, you may recognize verses some Christians use to explain their biblical opposition to homosexuality. These ancient words have become popular again in our day in some discussions, but in order to interpret ancient texts from different cultures faithfully, one must understand the original context and meaning.
Also tucked away in these chapters of Leviticus is the famous commandment to “love your neighbor as yourself.” Inclusion and exclusion. Welcome and judgment. Holiness and profanity. Charlotte’s blog for this week explores some of the interpretive conundrums of Scripture.
By the way – you are doing great! (However much of this you are doing!) Keep it up!
