Chiastic Structure in Leviticus

#1 Post by Bobcat » 1 year ago

To start the chiasm thread on Leviticus, the literary structure below demonstrates the symmetrical parallel arrangement that the book of Leviticus can be charted in:

A. Legal, chapters 1—7

. . . B. Narrative, chapters 8—10

. . . . . . C. Legal, chapters 11—15

. . . . . . . . . D. Legal Written as Narrative, chapter 16

. . . . . . C^ Legal, chapters 17:1—24:9

. . . B^ Narrative, chapter 24:10-23

A^ Legal, chapters 25—27

I haven't yet had a chance to look closely at the arrangement. I am curious if the various parallel parts have any relationship with their opposite component.
