Today, I am reading and commenting on Leviticus 14-15.
I have read through today’s passage several times looking for what I want to write about it. In the end nothing really struck me. However, I found myself fascinated by its understanding of how to deal with public health threats. I noted how they used various time delays to ensure that symptoms did not recur for someone who was apparently healed. In yesterday’s passage there were instructions on how to deal with mildew on various items in a nomadic camp. Today’s passage explains how to apply similar rules to permanent structures. The final thing which I found interesting was the understanding of the health dangers of exposure to someone else’s bodily fluids expressed in this passage.
