A key verse in Leviticus is chapter 19v2, where we are told to be holy because God is holy.
The book of Leviticus, literally ‘The book of the Levites’ is the part of the law dealing with the function of the priests who were of the tribe of Levi. It tells the people and the priests how they should conduct themselves and these ‘laws’ covered a wide variety of areas.
v3 – Respecting your parents
v10 – Caring for those in need
v11 – Respecting others
v14 – Not being mean
Also covering areas such as haircuts v27, diet v26, being fair v27 and many, many other things.
In Leviticus chapter 16 v 15 for example, there are rules about sacrificing animals.
In the New Testament, in Hebrews 9v22, we read that in the law, without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness of sins. In Hebrews 10v4, we read that the blood of animals cannot fogive sins. It goes on to say how Jesus Christ became our sacrifice to forgive sins.
Read John 1v29. “Look, the Lamb of God”. He takes away the sins of the world.
Ask to see if the children understand what this is saying.
