Leviticus Rabbah

(с AD 450) Compilation of 37 compositions on topics suggested by the Old Testament Book of Leviticus.

Their message is that the laws of history focus on the holy life of Israel (the Jewish people). If the Jews obey the laws of society aimed at Israel's sanctification, then the foreordained history will unfold as Israel hopes. Israel, for its part, can affect its own destiny. Thus salvation at the end of history depends on sanctification in the here and now.
