The Covenant With Israel – Exodus-Deuteronomy

Leviticus: The Holiness of God and His People – The LORD God made His people holy, because He is holy.  (Holiness means they are separate from uncleaness and disobedience and separated to God Himself and love for others). (Leviticus 16; 19:1; 26:46) GOAT

Deuteronomy: Renewal of the Covenant – Israel needed to know exactly how they were to live once they had actually entered the land of the covenant. (Deuteronomy 6) ONE
