In Exodus, Moses instructed the Israelites where to worship, but Leviticus tells them how to worship. Exodus begins with enslaved sinners, but Leviticus begins with saved saints. In Leviticus, we encounter the doctrine of holiness: holy clothing, holy sacrifices, holy places, holy days, holy law, and a holy nation.

There are two kinds of holiness: personal holiness relating to sin, illustrated by the sacrifice of animals for the forgiveness of sin, and personal holiness relating to lifestyle, illustrated by living differently from neighboring nations to signify their separateness as a chosen nation.
