Leviticus 25:8 – 55

Questions:

1. Think about how much you owe your creditors now. How would you feel if someone paid off all your debts?

2. Why do you think there is a distinction made between walled cities and villages with regard to the sale and redemption of houses (verses 29 – 31)? How might the inherent differences between village and city help to explain this law?

3. State in your own words the “right of redemption” concerning property and people (verse 48 – 53). What do these laws say about the relationship between God and His people?

4. What most excites you about the Year of Jubilee? If the Year of Jubilee were to be observed where you live, what would be the consequences of such radical economic reform?

5. What do you learn from this passage about relations between employer and employee? Lender and borrower? Property owner and tenant? Rich and poor? Citizens and foreigners?

6. You have been bought with a price, redeemed by God to become His “servant” (verse 55)? How do your actions demonstrate your redemption (see Romans 6:15 – 23)? What will you do to remind yourself of your Christian “servanthood”?
