Welcome

Dave Roth, AuthorIt is my pleasure to once again welcome you to The Seeker's Network. If you have been a regular visitor to our web page, you will have noticed that it has drastically changed. Our web host had a server problem and lost all of our content along with the backups. This means that I will have to begin from scratch. I originally had over 3,000 daily bible studies for you to use. This was more than ten years of work, so it will take some time to restore them. I then had problems with the renewal of my domain name and this site has been off line for over a month. I pray the Lord will now help us to continue this work without any further interruptions.

My intentions are for this site to be a blessing for anyone who is seeking knowledge, whether you are a novice to the Christian faith or a teacher, pastor, evangelist or just a serious student. I am now posting daily bible studies again and rebuilding our bible study library along with daily devotions and other content, so please check back every day and enjoy our studies..

The books of Matthew, Colossians, 1 & 2 Corinthians and Genesis are now complete. There are nearly 1000 daily studies posted. I am working on restoring the Exodus studies and our daily study on Leviticus will appear Mondays thru Fridays, except on holidays.

Thank you and may God bless you for your interest, understanding and patience with the previous inconvenience.

Dave Roth
Author, Web master, and Pastor

Today's Bible Study

A Little Leaven, Not For Heaven

Leviticus 2:8-12

8 And thou shalt bring the meat offering that is made of these things unto the LORD: and when it is presented unto the priest, he shall bring it unto the altar. 9 And the priest shall take from the meat offering a memorial thereof, and shall burn it upon the altar: it is an offering made by fire, of a sweet savor unto the LORD. 10 And that which is left of the meat offering shall be Aaron's and his sons': it is a thing most holy of the offerings of the LORD made by fire. 11 No meat offering, which ye shall bring unto the LORD, shall be made with leaven: for ye shall burn no leaven, nor any honey, in any offering of the LORD made by fire. 12 As for the oblation of the firstfruits, ye shall offer them unto the LORD: but they shall not be burnt on the altar for a sweet savor.


The baked meat offerings, whether made in an oven, flat plate or frying pan, were treated in exactly the same manner as the unbaked flour. (For an explanation of verses 8-10 see my notes on verses 2 and 3.) They must be presented to the priest who burns a portion of them for a memorial and keeps the remainder for his own support.

There is a new stipulation added in the eleventh verse. The addition of leaven or honey to this or any offering that was to be burnt on the altar was strictly prohibited. Leavening and honey are both fermenting agents and thus symbolize corruption and sin. In Matthew 16:6, 12, Jesus warned against the corrupt doctrines of their time, calling them "the leaven of the Pharisees." In Mark 8:15, He referred to the corruption of Herod as leavening and, in Luke 12:1, it was the hypocrisy of the Pharisees that drew the analogy.    Read More
