Use a notebook or a Bible Reading Journal to take notes while you read. You can download a page of suggestions (Bible Journal suggestions) to paste in your notebook if you wish. Share your thoughts or favourite verses.  For the link to the Genesis to Job Bible Reading Journal on Amazon, scroll to the bottom of this post: Bible Reading Journal.

BIBLE MARKING

Each time you find a mention of “atonement” highlight it in purple.

BOOK (or LITERATURE)

Choose a book from the following list to read. Share a quote or two.

Law and Grace by W.F. Barling

The Beauty of Holiness by Michael Ashton

DRAMA

Keep a box for drama objects: for Leviticus this might include: animals for offerings, dress up as priests, trumpets for Feast of Trumpets, sheets or “branches” for Feast of Tabernacles.  You can use the shofar from the “Art Project” section of this challenge, too!

DIG DEEPER

Choose one of the Feasts they were to keep during the year. Research how it was to be celebrated, and how it is celebrated today in Jewish households.

FOOD

Make challah bread: http://jeanlbons.com/reflecting-on-scripture-challah/.

QUIZ

Sometimes a question to find the answer to can be helpful to keep little ones engaged. Aquila N. Priscilla has done an excellent job preparing lots of questions to ask before or after reading – you can find their book for purchase here: Know Questions: Genesis to Job. Alternatively you can download this Leviticus Word Search based on words and phrases from Leviticus.

MEDIA

Listen to Be Ye Holy for I am Holy- David Wizneiwski. Search for it on Christadelphian Bible Talks under Classes. Share a thought that stands out to you.

TIMELINE

Make an offering sheet and Jewish calendar.  Fill in the details for the different offerings in Leviticus as you go along. You could do this using the sheet below, or in your own notebook.

LANGUAGE

The word “redeem” shows up in Leviticus 25-27, and is an important biblical concept that reflects God’s plan with man and the earth.  Spend some time researching this word “redeem.” This link explains how to do a word study including a template that may help: Word Study. Share what you learn!

THE HEART

Practice self-examination.  “A specific sin may be hidden even from those who are nearest to us, but if forms an impenetrable cloud between ourself and God and robs our prayer of its reality: if we persist in sinning and trying to pray, our religion will soon become an empty sham. On the other hand we have the assurance that ‘if we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.’ Once the wind of divine grace has swept the cloud away, we feel immediately the warmth of His love and fellowship restored: there follows a heavenly peace which ‘passeth understanding’. In that peace we shall find both the willingness to accept any consequences our sin may bring and a re-awakening of our determination to do the will of God. Whilst this experience is intensified by specific sin, it is not confined to it. No day passes without a consciousness of things we have done which are out of harmony with our calling as children of God — opportunities lost, evil or angry thoughts which have only failed to degenerate into deeds through our inability to implement them. These are clouds which sweep across the sun. To be effective, ‘Forgive us our trespasses’ must be a heart-searching confession of recollected failures and not an ambiguous generalization which merely recognizes our unworthiness and can sometimes leave a smug feeling of self-satisfaction.” (Prayer, Melva Purkis and Cyril Tennant)
