Item Description...
The New International Commentary on the Old Testament is a conservative and scholarly treatment of the scriptures. This volume on Leviticus by G.J. Wenham begins with an opening article which discusses the authorship, date, text, theology and structure of the book. The commentary is a scholarly analysis, focusing on the Hebrew and historical background of the book. This is a good work for scholarly study.

Publishers 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 s special 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.

Learn to Love Leviticus  Dec 5, 2002
I mentioned to a pastor friend of mine that I was doing my daily devotions in the Book of Leviticus. As would be expected from one of the uninitiated, I got a look that said "you've got to be kidding."

People are under the mistake belief that because we are "no longer under the law," the Old Testament is no longer relevant to our daily lives as Christians. This is where Gordon Wenham's book comes in.

Wenham's commentary has opened this otherwise ponderous book in a way that I never dreamed imaginable. Truly all scripture is profitable!

Wenham has a way of extracting the spiritual nugget out of the law that is applicable to us. While we do not earn our salvation, nor could we ever do anything to merit Eternal Life, G-d is still a holy G-d, and it is written in both Old and New Testaments "Be ye holy, for I am holy."

Read Leviticus, by Gordon Wenham and see how this all fits into the big picture of "Christ in you, the hope of glory."

The beauty of holiness.  Oct 11, 2002
This is one of the best commentaries I have ever read. It is a helpful resource in helping the reader to understand the nature of sin and the need for holiness among God's covenant people, who have been called to be a Kingdom of Priests and a Holy Naiton.
Resurrecting Leviticus  Oct 28, 2001
Thank you Gordon Wenham!

Leviticus has always been obtuse to me. Not so anymore. Wenham's clear, even lively discussion of Leviticus has brought it to life for me.

Wenham's commentary does not get bogged down by endlessly discussing--as far too many commentaries on books of the Pentateuch do--theoretical textual issues. Instead, Wenham focuses on what the implications of the text were and are.

This book contains one of the most powerful discussions on the meaning of sin that I have ever read. Wenham has cleared up not only the fuzziness I had about not only Leviticus, but about several issues in my life.

This commentary is priceless. I recommend it most highly.

The Best in a Mediocre Field  Sep 5, 2001
This commentary on Leviticus limits itself to a scholarly and fairly objective explanation of the biblical text, which is desirable in a commentary. Wenham's commentary is a useful commentary on Leviticus where conservative scholars are rare indeed. Especially helpful are Wenham's comments and insights about the Old Testament sacrificial system and its significance. Unfortunately, concerning salvation, Wenham leaves room for the understanding that a person contributes somehow to his justification. Nonehteless, a very good text--especially considering what else is available--but not outstanding.
Best Conservative Commentary on Leviticus  Apr 19, 2001
Since sacrifice and clean/unclean is such a prominent part of the Christian faith, this book is critical.

Wenham unloads the rich content of God's giving the requirements for correct worship and sacrifice. This set's the scene for the New Covenant worship and sacrifice.

Prefiguring Christ's work and sacrifice, Wenham sees this work as substantial to the holiness of God and the holiness demanded of each who comes before his presence.

Highly recommended to the student of OT and Leviticus.
