Leviticus in Light of Christ

My paper “Leviticus in light of Christ” has been published in Themelios 46.3. The entire issue is available online and in PDF, and the paper itself is separately available online. The abstract is:

Christians have long wrestled with how to read the Law in light of the work of Christ. Focusing on Leviticus, this article defends a proposal for its structure and leverages this as a starting point for reading its laws in light of Christ. The resulting approach considers laws in terms of (1) the purpose of the overarching section to which they belong and (2) how they are expressed in terms of old covenant realities. This provides the tools for nuanced consideration of the degree and manner of how these laws continue to be relevant to daily life in Christ.

The paper will be linked on my page on Leviticus.
