Interesting Facts in Leviticus

I have been reading the book of Leviticus in preparation for my Bible Bowl Competition coming up this weekend. Yesterday as a part of our study, we went over some things that would prevent a Levite from being a priest.

Leviticus chapter 21 states some very interesting restrictions:

17Speak unto Aaron, saying, Whosoever he be of thy seed in their generations that hath any blemish, let him not approach to offer the bread of his God.
18For whatsoever man he be that hath a blemish, he shall not approach: a blind man, or a lame, or he that hath a flat nose, or any thing superfluous,
19Or a man that is brokenfooted, or brokenhanded,
20Or crookbackt, or a dwarf, or that hath a blemish in his eye, or be scurvy, or scabbed, or hath his stones broken;
21No man that hath a blemish of the seed of Aaron the priest shall come nigh to offer the offerings of the LORD made by fire: he hath a blemish; he shall not come nigh to offer the bread of his God.

It is amazing how particular God was in selecting men to perfom his requirements, and although we do not have a Levitical system today, God is still particular about His requirements and how we serve Him.

Aren't you glad that God is particular?


  1. Thanks very much for dropping by and commenting - I'm trying to quit again and will continue to try if necessary!

    God bless.

  2. What an interesting question! I am glad that God is particular, because my salvation is complete and perfect, with nothing left to chance.

  3. Old Fashioned Girl,

    You are most welcome. I will continue to keep you in my prayers.
