Description: In this book, Trevaskis argues that holiness in Leviticus always has an ethical dimension, and is not simply a cultic category. In so doing he departs from the usual view that in Leviticus 1Ė16 (P) holiness is largely a cultic concept.

Subjects: Bible, Hebrew Bible/Old Testament, Pentateuch, Leviticus, Literature
