A New Look at Atonement in Leviticus: The Meaning and Purpose of Kipper Revisited

I'm pretty sure I have suggested the BBR Supplements series in the past. Many, many, many great topics. I think (though I may be wrong) that I've seen at least one individual title from the series offered in Logos. If I'm correct...PLEASE GO AHEAD AND OFFER THE WHOLE SERIES...and keep the new titles coming. Thanks.

Almost 100 views and not a single word of interest or support. Yeah...not too surprising.

There is a perspective that gets tossed around that the NT interprets and gives meaning to the OT. Given the prevalence of isolated pocket New Testaments (occasionally incl. Psalms...Yay!!) floating around, there is apparently a strong sense that the Tanakh: is superfluous. Oh, it has some "examples of Godly living", but the place where everything gets explained is in the NT. What a deadly mistake.

The NT (given YHWH's timeless nature) does determine what occurs and what gets recorded in the OT, this is true. YHWH not only knows the end from the beginning, but He does because He designs the beginning from the end. What happens in the OT happens because the events of the NT require them. BUT...the meaning and the purpose of the events of the NT are driven and declared by what is presented in the OT. Regardless of what anyone or any tradition may suppose, a perfect knowledge of the NT alone cannot save you. Indeed, the events entailed in the NT cannot save you unless you understand the "how" and "why" for their existence and occurrence as explained in the OT, which anyone well familiar with the OT would know. ALL of the meaning of the work done on the cross is found in the OT, and any conclusions which rely solely upon the material presented in the NT are inadequate and insufficient for attaining the goal of discipleship...which some greedily call "salvation". What is virtually never discussed is how often the sense of "salvation" found in the Bible isn't related to salvation from sins (personal or communal), but is rather a reference to salvation from those who twist YHWH's religion into something other than what it is intended to be. If that fact is something you've never recognized, then you resemble it.

This book, based on its TOC, covers many of the fundamental concepts that make the work of the cross have meaning, and the purpose of that work is absolutely necessary to understand if the work can have its effect. The Bible is extraordinarily explicit about the fact that personal knowledge and understanding are requisite traits in order for any of what YHWH is doing through Yeishuua` to have purchase on a person's life. The fairly common notion that is expressed in many quarters that a person can be saved having never read the Bible nor understood YHWH's express intentions is nothing more than a fever dream. Knowledge IS a requisite before the work done gets applied. Just to be clear, I haven't read this book, so I'm not vouching for it's complete accuracy...only for the necessary awareness of its subject matter. If you don't have a solid lock on what the OT teaches about the meaning and purpose of atonement and how it DRIVES the work of Yeishuua`, you need a book like this.
