Does reading the Bible feel daunting? With 66 books and over 1,200 chapters, anyone would feel overwhelmed. According to statistics, 1 in 8 (12%) Christians admit they rarely or never read the Bible. While another study by Lifeway Research in 2016 purports that 1 in 5 (20%) Americans said they have read all the Bible at least once. At JournalOwl, we’d like to believe the statistic by Lifeway Research in that 1 out of 5 people in America have read the Bible at least once front to back. 

Here's the problem though: although they’ve read the Bible front to back, what have they comprehended? What have they applied to everyday living? What do they remember? And what have they discussed and dialogued about with others? The Bible is the word of God. Wouldn’t it be amazing to read book-by-book & chapter-by-chapter with your friends, family, and colleagues? Not only read it together, but also answer thought-provoking questions about each chapter. 

This isn’t a quiz where you answer true or false questions. To truly comprehend subject matter, you must think through the question, reference the subject material, and devote time & effort to writing out your response in the context of your everyday life. At least that is how many successful and intelligent scholars deeply comprehend their area of expertise.

With JournalOwl, we have taken all 66 books of the Bible and broken them down chapter-by-chapter with thought-provoking questions to pick from, write about, and collaboratively discuss with people from across the world. Taking it a step further, you can Zoom video chat with a private Bible Study group of your choosing, or just follow along with the many other Christians participating. Knowing that you’re actively moving through the Bible with any other people at the same time brings comfort, assurance, and confidence that you can too be one of the 20% who has read the Bible cover-to-cover.  

Today, let’s look at Leviticus. The third book of the Old Testament in the Holy Bible. Did you know that Leviticus has 27 distinct chapters? The Book of Leviticus is the third book in the Old Testament which is 929 chapters in total. That’s a lot of reading! 

Let’s take a closer look at Leviticus. The book itself dives into the details of God’s laws given to Israel at Sinai; including specific details of sacrifices and the Holiness required of his people in Israel. As you dive into this book with JournalOwl Bible Study Groups, you’ll read & write about the following offerings:

  • Burnt (reviewed in Chapter 1) and what it means to give of yourself to God
  • Meal (reviewed in Chapter 2) and giving Thanks to God
  • Peace (reviewed in Chapter 3)
  • Sin (reviewed in Chapter 4)
  • Trespass (reviewed in Chapter 5)
  • And Atonement (reviewed in Chapter 16)

Throughout the book of Leviticus, you’ll read and write about Priesthood, Christ, and the Offerings. For example, you’ll learn about Aaron (of the tribe of Levi) whom was Israel’s first High Priest and how his sons and decedents continued the priesthood over the next eight centuries. You will also learn and write about how this priesthood ultimately failed to later crate the better priesthood of Jesus Christ (of the tribe of Judah). According to 1 Timothy 2:5, Jesus Christ is the only priest today, a mediator between God and men. You will also read about how Jesus Christ perfectly fulfilled everything intended of the offerings outlined in the book of Leviticus. According to Hebrews 10, his total dedication and sinlessness made him the perfect offering for those who look in faith to God for atonement. 

With JournalOwl Bible Study Groups, you are led through each chapter of the bible in a self-paced journey of exploration.
