In this video, we explore the importance of the ancient laws in the Old Testament. Why are they in the Bible, and what do they say to followers of Jesus? We explore how they fulfilled a strategic purpose in one key phase of the biblical story, leading up to Jesus who fulfilled the law and summarized it in the call to love God and love your neighbor as yourself.
Today our reading comes from Leviticus 14-15 where God continues to give some cultural rules surrounding cleanliness.

The thing that stuck out to me today was the fact that the priests were put into harms way quite a bit. God was clear that the priests went to the diseased and unclean people and diagnosed them. You have to imagine that God give them a hedge of protection from these things so that they could care for the people well.
