We continue in part two of the book of Leviticus. After giving the dietary laws that make distinctions between clean and unclean animals, now we begin to see those ceremonial laws that deal with our bodily impurity. We will consider the reason for these laws and how they point to Christ and the cleansing he has brought. We will also consider what we are to learn from these laws. The text is Leviticus 12. We will consider these three points:
- The “impurity” of child birth. (vv. 1-5)
- The provision for cleansing. (vv. 6-8)
- The fulfillment in Christ.
