ANSWER: EXODUS, LEVITICUS, VBCBI
1. Best theory: 1490-50 B. C.
2. Ex 1:8 Now there arose up a new king over Egypt, which knew not Joseph.
3. (1) It was part of God’s plan for deliverance. (2) Egypt tried to kill all male Hebrew babies (Ex 1:15 to 2:10).
4. Both were highly educated; both required a long period of re-education before God could use them.
5. Probably Jesus. The title, YHWH (LORD), often refers to either the Father or the Son and sometimes to both (Jn 8:58; Ps 110:1)
6. Pharaoh kept changing his mind about releasing Israel.
7. Justification by faith (Passover); baptism (Red Sea crossing), sanctification (Law)
8. Ex 12:13b When I see the blood I will pass over you.
11. (1) Indivisible covenant of commandments, judgments and ordinances (Lev 26:15); (2) the revealed will of God (in Hebrew or Gentile context—Rom 1:18-20; 2:14-16); (3) the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus (Rom 8:2)
12. Judgments were the punishment of willful sins by the judges of Israel (Ex 21- 24). Since violation of most of the Ten Commandments resulted in a death penalty, these sins were only brought to the judges.
13. Statutes/ordinances were the ceremonial worship laws, They included instructions on building the sanctuary, priestly laws, sacrificial instructions and unclean food. The priests ministered sins of ignorance and accidental sins.
14. Only Levi crossed the line to be on Moses’ side during the golden calf incident.
15. Leviticus is almost totally the ceremonial worship statutes, or ordinances, of the law. Like the Ten Commandments, violation was sin and required a sacrifice or punishment.
16. Whole burnt offerings were also sweet savor offerings upon which no sins wee confessed. Like the Passover Lamb, they represented Christ’s sinlessness.
17. Sin and trespass offering atoned for sins of ignorance and accident which were confessed over them. They represented Christ as our Substitute dying for our sins.
18. The priest shall make an atonement for them (Lev 4:20+++) (Rom 3:25; Heb 9:15)
19. Sabbath years, Jubilee Sabbath (Lev 25)
20. The holiness laws reminded Israel that it was to be set apart (sanctified) and holier than the rest of humanity. (Lev 20:1-7)
21. From 16 texts which describe the holy tithe, it is always only food from inside God’s holy land of Israel which God had miraculously increased. Though money was common, money is never included in any description of the tithe. Jesus, Peter and Paul did not qualify as tithe payers.
