A Brief Outline of the Books of the Bible – Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy

LEVITICUS

Leviticus gives us God in the tabernacle, as in the midst of His people, ordering all things that suit their relationship to Him.  The feasts represent Him as in the midst of the people, a circle round Himself.

NUMBERS

Numbers treats the journey through the wilderness, with insight into the inheritance (for us heavenly).  It present a full prospect of all God’s ways in bringing them in, and of Christ Himself as the One who is to reign.   Reference is made in this last remark to Pisgah, and to Balaam’s prophecy.

DEUTERONOMY

Deuteronomy provides a recapitulation of all God’s ways and dealings with Israel, as motives to insist on obedience, and to put the people on moral grounds in direct relationship with Himself.   The three great feasts (chap. 16) have this character.   The testing character of the law is stated, and at the same time the purpose of God in blessing, spite of failure under the law, is revealed; closing with the prophetic blessing of Israel, in respect to their then present condition.

lay-preachingIn addition to his Synopsis of the Books of the Bible, John Nelson Darby produced a short outline.  They were based on a series of lectures in Birmingham.   This is being reproduced here.

As time allows I will go through it, making the language clearer and up to date, only where necessary.  This will not be a summary.
