ABSTRACT

This analysis of the strucure of Leviticus shows that chapter 18-20, which presents the list of ethical crimes that leads to critical punishment, are located in the center of chiasmus. This means that ethical holiness is important for salvation through the presence of Yahweh in the society of Israel, Also, by presenting cultic and ethical contexts one by one, the structure of Leviticus signals that the cultic and ethical holiness has to be accomplished at the same time.
