Project 4:4--Day Fifty-Six

Day Fifty-Six, Various Passages from Leviticus and Numbers

This day’s reading has rules for the Israelites for purification from various types of uncleanness. It has rules about childbirth, leprosy, bodily discharges, death…

Basically, lots of things can make a person unclean by coming in contact with them. This was unacceptable, as the Israelites were to be holy, set apart. That’s the recurring theme through a lot of the rules for the Israelites. It’s as though cleanliness really is next to godliness.
