YeHoVaH called His people to be a Holy people as He is a Holy God. The Laws they were given were for His Holy, set apart people to live Holy unto YeHoVaH! The grace of YeHoVaH took into account that man was a fallen creature with immoral tendencies, so His Laws contained Ordinances, Statutes, and Judgments for certain behaviors. However, for some behaviors, the death penalty was required.
In this portion of Leviticus, we will examine certain sins that resulted in the death of the offender.
In preparation for the study of The Death Penalty, please read Leviticus 20:1-27.
