This study was conducted to explore the concept of Levitical leadership in the Bible. The problem that often occurs is that even if there are leaders who are born genetically because they are inherited, strict rules are still needed so that the next generation of churches can continue the leadership relay well. Given the existence of a church that carries the concept of the Levitical priesthood, the writer is interested in examining whether it is still relevant to the church today and formulating it in a scientific study, namely "The Levitical Concept in the Leadership Relay and Its Relevance to the Church Today". The author uses a descriptive analysis qualitative research method, with a literature and library approach. The church that carries the concept of the Levitical priesthood, indirectly rejects the New Testament priesthood where Jesus continues the line of the Melchizedek priesthood, and not the Levitical priesthood, this is what clarifies the difference between the New Testament priesthood and the Levitical priesthood. So it can be concluded that the Levitical priesthood is no longer relevant in a church that recognizes Jesus as high priest, according to the Melchizedek line.
