Day 191: Journey Through the Bible in a Year
Focus Verses for Today: Leviticus 13:9-17
Ask God for His understanding of Leviticus 13-15. Read Leviticus 13-15. Let’s journey.
Commentary: Throughout the past two years, we have all learned the importance of proper hygiene and how to keep ourselves healthy. Today’s reading addressed God’s instructions to the Israelites on proper hygiene in order for them to stay healthy. The Israelites were living in the desert in close quarters. Can you imagine how hard it was to stay healthy?! Many instructions given by the Lord are still used today, proven to help us fight illnesses! These chapters do not offer cures. Sin is similar to a disease. Just as the Israelites were instructed to cleanse themselves in water, we are to cleanse ourselves in the blood of Christ. The offerings presented by the Israelites after becoming clean once again, represent the ultimate sacrifice that was yet to come, Jesus Christ.
Focus Verses: Leviticus 13:9-17 – Why is the Lord so specific in His instructions? What would have happened if He had not been specific? How is sin similar to a disease? How is sin treated?
