In the newest edition of the "Conversations with Scripture" series, Kevin Wilson offers fresh insights into the meaning of the Law for today. In chapters that explore the Law in "Exodus", and "Leviticus", Wilson examines the historical and cultural contexts of these legal codes. He discusses rituals such as sacrifice and rituals related to purification from defilement. Wilson demonstrates the ways in which the temple priests used many of these laws as their own code of purity and their own method of enforcing purity in the covenant community.
Kevin A. Wilson is Professor of Biblical Studies at Lithuania Christian College.
