BACKGROUND FOR THE LESSON. Three months after the children of Israel left Egypt, they arrived at Mount Sinai (see Exodus 19:1-2). They were there about a year (see Numbers 1:1) receiving instructions for the tabernacle, the priests, and the various laws from God that we have in Exodus and Leviticus. Included in the laws God gave to Moses to give to His people were seven different feasts or celebrations that Israel was to observe (see Leviticus 23:4-44). In Leviticus chapter 24, God gave Moses instructions for oil for the lamp in the tabernacle (see Leviticus 24:1-4) and for making the showbread (see Leviticus 24:5-9). Then God gave instructions on dealing with blasphemy and the penalty for it (see Leviticus 24:10-16, 23), and the penalty for killing someone (see Leviticus 24:17-22). Our lesson text begins with chapter 25.
