1. The pattern of sevens reflected in the festivals is now extended to the land. One year in seven it is to lie fallow: a year in which the people, freed from much of their ordinary work, are to be taught and trained in Gods law. The fiftieth year, following the seventh seven, is an extra fallow year for the land, which reverts to its original owner. It is a time when those who have fallen on bad times have their freedom and property restored. Jubilee, the year of restoration, serves a dual purpose. It reminds the people that the land belongs to God; and it prevents the wealth from amassing land. Leviticus 25:1-55.
1.The reward for obedience is pictured as an idyll of peace and plenty. God will walk among his people. Disobedience will bring calamity. Nevertheless even after disobedience God still promises to respond to the call of genuine repentance. Leviticus 26:1-46.
1. Details of the offerings to be made to the Lord. The firstlings
of flocks, and herds and the firstfruit of the field are Gods by right. One-tenth of
all cattle and produce are also his. Over and above this men make individual vows.
Leviticus 27:1-34. B.C
