Day 41

Leviticus 26-27

Chapter 26

There’s just nothing redeeming in these last two chapters of Leviticus. Chapter 26 is all about terrorism – unless there’s another way to describe ‘love me or else I’ll torture you’. It’s unimaginable to me how anyone could defend this passage, but people do.

Chapter 27

We finish off Leviticus with a disturbing discussion of the worth of human beings, females being worth significantly less than males, and babies under a month old (presumably this includes the unborn?) worth nothing at all. The only winners in this chapter are (surprise, surprise) the priests, whose word on all matters are final (verses 12-15). And of course, they get all the bounty of the tithe as well – it has to go somewhere, right?
