In chapter 15, God outlines many restrictions and guidelines when dealing with people who had various infirmities. These guidelines weren’t arbitrary, they were for the express purpose of preserving his chosen people. God knows what is best for us and his word gives us that information. Wisdom comes when we follow what God says and apply his guidelines to our life.

Atonement is reconciliation or restoration or the relationship between God and man. In chapter 16, God describes the events of the day of atonement that the children of Israel would have to observe every year in perpetuity. When Christ died on the cross, we received everlasting atonement!

For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.

And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement.

Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:
