    The Dangerous Gift of God’s Presence – Leviticus E4

    What Did the Burnt Offerings Really Mean? – Leviticus E3

    What is the significance of the offerings described in Leviticus?

    What Is Atonement? – Leviticus E2

    What Is Atonement? – Leviticus E2

    A God who wants nothing more than to dwell with humanity, a way forward to a repaired relationship between Heaven and Earth, atoning sacrifices meant to communicate grace (not punishment)—you’ll find all of this in Leviticus. While the laws governing Israel’s sacrificial system can be some of the most challenging parts of the Bible to read, they’re an integral part of the unfolding story of the Bible. In this episode, Tim and Jon discuss the surprising beauty of sacrifice and atonement in the opening movement of Leviticus.

    How God Reveals Himself in Leviticus – Leviticus E1

    Holiness is a word we frequently associate with the Bible, but what does it mean? As we pick up the story from where we left off in Exodus, we find even Moses unable to enter God’s presence—and a whole bunch of laws about situations many of us have never considered. What is going on in the scroll of Leviticus? And why is it important? In this episode, join Tim and Jon as they dive into the first movement of the Leviticus scroll, where we’ll trace the theme of sacrifice.

Eye opening experience!

Love this podcast so much! It helped me see things in a radically different way. I appreciate the incredible effort to read the Bible as it was meant to be read. I used to think Bible interpretation was boring and straightforward. Now I see how easy it is to get it wrong and sadly, how many churches around the world have distorted the message. I now appreciate the complexities and nuisances of these beautiful and weird stories in a way I never thought I could.

Paradigm Shift

A few years ago I embarked on a rereading of the whole Bible, having wondered if there were truly a story arc - something more connective than a sometimes wild, always instructional, divinely inspired collection of books. I also wondered about the apparent difference between the God of the Old and New Testaments. Frankly I don’t know how I lived as a follower of Jesus this long and not see it.
I’ve had my questions beyond answered, and my mind blown - learned to see things in a different light, and my faith stirred.
I want to thank Tim and John, and all the team for sharing their research, knowledge, and gifts with us via these podcasts and the beautiful distillations of them as videos - and as if that weren’t enough, other resources, and free classes.
Just - wow.
In wonder and gratitude.
Thanks guys. So so so much.
