Leviticus Week 9: “Life and Death”
This week’s message teaches us about the practices surrounding bodily functions and what seems like some of the oddest passages in Leviticus. At first glance, these appear to be rules for good hygiene. Once we take a step back and look at the text as a whole, we learn more about the character of God and his primary concern. God is not a god of death and dying. In fact, he specifically identifies himself as the God of life. He can always be found where there is life, as He is continuously breathing life into dead things (Ezekiel 37). The way for us to be reconciled to Him and one another is the way of life, the way of Jesus Christ.
