To read the Bible in a year, read Leviticus 14 on February 12, In the year of our Lord Christ 2019

By Don Ruhl

After lengthy and detailed instructions on leprosy, the Lord summarized what He was doing with those instructions, when He said:

“This is the law for any leprous sore and scale, for the leprosy of a garment and of a house, for a swelling and a scab and a bright spot, to teach when it is unclean and when it is clean. This is the law of leprosy” (Leviticus 14.54–57).

The Lord taught Israel about leprosy and in so doing, He taught them the law on cleanness and uncleanness. Now we are to carry over those thoughts into the spirit, for there are things clean and unclean in the spirit, and if we engage in unclean things, they shall spread even as leprosy could spread. Avoid sin!
