You are to be holy because the LORD is holy. To be holy, you have to know what holiness is. Walk in the footsteps of Messiah, fill yourself with the Word daily so you can be truly holy.
The seventh portion of the book of Vayikra/Leviticus is Kedoshim, which means “Holy Ones.” This is the thirtieth Torah Portion.
Kedoshim (“Holy”) opens by instructing the Israelites to be holy. It details dozens of laws regulating all aspects of life, including observing Shabbat, loving one’s neighbor, and leaving portions of a field for the poor. It ends by detailing punishments for certain types of idolatry and sexual misconduct.
In the Haftorah, the prophet declares that the wicked in Israel will surely die, but the righteous remnant will be re-established in Israel, never to be uprooted again.
In the Apostolic Writings, Messiah quotes LEV 9:18 affirming that Loving your neighbor is the second greatest commandment.
TORAH: Leviticus 19:1-20:27
HAFTORAH: Amos 9:7-15
APOSTOLIC: Mark 12:28-34
