It's been great to read through the bible with our life group this year. Our bible reading plan is cool because it alternates, one book at a time, from the Old to New Testament. As with any Bible reading program, it's easy to get bogged down in Leviticus, and Numbers, and the ceremonial passages of the Torah early on in the year.

Well, if that's you, let me recommend reading Hebrews. Our program took us right from Leviticus into Hebrews and it helps explain so much of the sacrificial system (how Christ fulfills it), the old covenant (how the new one is better) and the Priesthood (Christ is now our High Priest).

It was so helpful to read those books (Leviticus, Hebrews) in that order. I highly recommend it. If you have questions about the O.T. law, if you're discouraged about the meaning of the ceremonial passages, and how it relates to you. . . don't give up. . .those books are rewarding when you go all the way through them. Then, give Hebrews a read.
