    Leviticus is the third book of the Hebrew Bible, and the third of five books of the Torah/Pentateuch. Leviticus contains laws and priestly rituals, but in a wider sense is about the working out of God's covenant with Israel set out in Genesis and Exoduswhat is seen in the Torah as the consequences of entering into a special relationship with God (specifically, Yahweh).3/5(3). Israel Knohl offers a new perspective on the history and theology of the Priestly source of the Pentateuch. By means of an analysis of specific texts--for example, those that deal with the Sabbath and the Festivals--Knohl demonstrates the existence of two separate Priestly sources, loosely speaking, the two sources that we have referred to as P and the Holiness Code.

    Approximately 17% of the Pentateuch is from the Elohist source; 18% was written by the Deuteronomist, 20% by the Yahwist, and a whopping 45% percent of the Pentateuch comes from the Priestly writer.

The Pentateuch, or what came to be known as the Torah or the Book of the Law, is regarded as the most authoritative and highly inspired of all the Old Testament writings, in large part because these books contain the laws given to the Israelites by Yahweh.

This cord makes it possible for the work as a whole to avoid falling apart when one of the two threads is torn or missing, which is the case several times.

The Priestly source seems also to continue beyond the Pentateuch, at least in Joshua. Within the Priestly source, two main strata can be identified: P, “Priestly”; and H, “Holiness.” P provides the narrative backbone of the source and includes within its narrative the revelation of.

This lack of hostility toward asherim is apparent in the book of Ezekiel as well, a work which has well-known ties to the priestly literature of the Torah. Like the Priestly texts, although Ezekiel condemns high places, altars, and incense stands (Ezek –6), he says nothing about asherim.
