Be Holy, For I am Holy

Seventh Sunday after  Epiphany
Scripture: Leviticus 19:1-2, 9-18

Leviticus is a collection of laws related to worship, priests, sacrifices and holiness. It is named after Levi, the tribe of priests. Leviticus reminds us that the people of Israel are called to have a relationship based on justice and love.  They are to be holy in their relationship with each other just as God treats his relationship with them as something sacred. This book underscores the holiness of God and the hope for Israel to reflect that holiness in all aspects of life. “Be holy, for I am holy” is the heart of this book. Israelites believed holiness was accomplished by keeping God’s commandments and codes.
