The Book of Leviticus is the third book of the Old Testament from the Bible, incorporated into the Christian scriptural standards, and the third of five books of the Pentateuch.
The Hebrew name of the third book of the Jewish Bible (Hebrew: וַיִּקְרָא Vayikra/Wayyiqrā), and the third of five books of the Torah, originates from its first word vayikraˈ,”He [God “Yahweh”] called.” Its Greek name Levitikon, “things relating to the Levites”, and its Latin name Leviticus, depend on the term torat kohanim, “guideline of (or ′for′) the ministers” from early rabbinic times.
The Book of Leviticus (from Greek Λευιτικόν, Leuitikon from rabbinic Hebrew torat kohanim) is the third book of the Old Testament from the Bible, incorporated into the Christian scriptural standards, and the third of five books of the Pentateuch.
The English name is from the Latin Leviticus, taken thusly from Greek and a reference to the Levites, the tribe of Aaron, from whom the Kohanim (‘”ministers”) plummeted. The book, in any case, addresses every one of the general population of Israel (1:2) however a few sections address the clerics particularly (6:8). The majority of its parts (1–7, 11–27) comprise of God’s talks to Moses which he is instructed to rehash to the Israelites. This happens inside the account of the Israelites’ Exodus after they got away Egypt and achieved Mt. Sinai (Exodus 19:1).
