Metaphysical meaning of Leviticus (mbd)
Leviticus, le-vit'-i-cus (fr. Heb.).

Third book of the Bible. It contains a summary of all the rules and ceremonies pertaining to the ministry of the Jewish priests and Levites, and pertaining to the activities of the Israelitish people. Not all the laws laid down in this book concern what we call religionmany of them are rules of health, social conduct, and so forth.

Meta. The real, inner spiritual law of life, of health, of peace, of plenty, and of true spiritual understanding and worship. Back of the outer letter of the law, back of the endless rules, restrictions, and ceremonies of an outer religion that binds and leads to death (see Rom. 7:9 10), there is the real serving of God in Spirit, which leads to life, to all good (see II Cor. 3:6).
