TITLE, Moses. See Appdx-2.
Leviticus. From the Sept. and Vulg., because thought to be pertaining to the Levites. The Heb. name = vayyikra, being the first word = "And He called". Leviticus, therefore, is the Book relating to worship:for only those whom God thus calls does He seek to worship Him. John 4:23, and cp. Psalms 65:4, "Blessed is the man whom Thou choosest, and causest to approach unto Thee, that he may dwell in Thy courts." All its types relate to worship, as those of Exodus relate to Redemption. The Holy Spirit is not once named, though referred to in all the other books of the Pentateuch, because all here relates to Christ; and it is the Spirit""s work to glorify Christ (John 16:14). The whole of Lev., and Numbers 1:1 - Numbers 10:10, come between the first day of the first month and the twentieth day of the second month (cp. Numbers 10:11), on the hypothesis that Israel would forthwith advance and enter the land.
