Leviticus Part 6 - The One with the Goat

Leviticus 16:29-34

In week six of Quest's series on Leviticus, Youth & College Ministries Director Morgan asks the question: "What is the good news (to you)?" and talks about the ways that the Day of Atonement is inherently tied to God's longing to draw near and pursue his people. God has continued this pursuit through Jesus Christ, and given the Holy Spirit and the church the task of embodying the good news - his presence and kingdom - on earth.

Leviticus Part 3 - A People Set Apart

Leviticus 11:44-45

On week 3, Pastor Eugene continues the series on Leviticus and explains the significance of the holiness of God - not just merely in terms of morality but in being "set apart." An important theme of Leviticus, he explains, is God demonstrating to Israel who He is and what it means to be His people - a people set apart. While we're no longer under the Levitical code, the holiness of God remains an important attribute of God and thus, we're called to live as people "set apart."

God of Holiness And The Law

Leviticus 1:1-9

For the people of Israel, the law was the means by which they knew and accessed God. Though very particular and costly in its expectations, their obedience to it enabled them to participate in relationship with YHWH. This call to holiness was fundamentally relational at its core, not just a list of "to do's" done out of obligation. Obedience was participation in a life with the God who called them into existence.

If we imagine the idea of sacrifice and obedience as a kind of "giving toward" rather than a "giving up," -a life that is more full and offers the possibility of participation beyond ourselves- we can then imagine how the law speaks to us today. While Christ did come and pay the ultimate sacrifice on our behalf, it is not an excuse to live a life of passivity. As Christ's life and very existence was for the other, so our lives must be a continual giving toward those around us...for the other.

Leviticus is a call to move from the conceptual to a concrete experience, from an idea to a living out, from rituals to a life of worship.

The Antidote to Greed

2 Corinthians 9:6-11

Pastor Eugene talks about the importance of stewardship - what we invest in and why and how we do so. He discusses the ways that living a life which places a high priority on responsible giving reaps a wide range of benefits, many of them outside the realm of finances. He emphasizes that giving should not be done out of compulsion but out of a joyful response to God's grace.
