Leviticus 25:23

''No land may be permanently bought or sold. It all belongs to me-it isn't your land, and you only live there for a little while.'' Leviticus 25:23

We often think of Leviticus as a list of prohibitions. We expect to find laws about sacrifices, morality, and the condemnation of people who do not measure up. What we actually find in the book might and probably should surprise us, as least a little. Beyond regulations in regard to purity laws and the specific responsibilities of priests and Levites, we also find laws regarding economics that would shake the foundations of Western societies, if not the entire world.

Matthew 6:20

''Instead, store up your treasures in heaven, where moths and rust cannot destroy them, and thieves cannot break in and steal them.'' Matthew 6:20

The Bible is rather harsh in its critiques of economic systems. It matters little if we are talking about the economic systems of the Ancient Near East or those of the present day. Leviticus called for a revolutionary new economic system, and Jesus goes even further in his comments regarding economics.
