Wesley's Notes for Leviticus 14:11


14:11 Maketh him clean - The healing is ascribed to God, #Lev 14:13|, but the ceremonial cleansing was an act of the priest using the rites which God had prescribed.

    Insight; It seems like you have a lot of ideas that go contrary to fundamental Doctrine: how do you think that ANY of the Scriptures are man's writings? Job 32:8 "But there is a spirit in man: and the inspiration of the Almighty gives them understanding." 2 Timothy 3:16 says that "ALL SCRIPTURE IS GOD-INSPIRED..." If one is not in agreement with the Spirit, how can he know the mind of the Spirit?

    Do not lower the Son of God into a position of High Priest. A High Priest is a Sadducee of the Jewish religion. Jesus is not a Sadducee. There are no priests appointed by Jesus. Jesus appointed Apostles that never called him a high priest. Only Paul, the Pharisee, called Jesus a high priest. Paul considers himself blessed because of his bloodline, being a Jew, twisting the gospel of Jesus to fit.

    the priests in those days seemed to really serve the combined role of doctor, lawyer, politician and psychologist in addition to their religious duties. Throughout all the statutes, it 's clear they made sure they got hold of the layman 's substance the more esoteric the ceremony, such as being specific as to which toe you dump stuff on, seemed a smokescreen to make it appear they had it goin ' on, but they needed to appear in the know of something that the rest of us were too unwashed to ever understand

    "...And if the priest shall come in, and look upon it, and, behold, the plague hath not spread in the house, after the house was plastered: then the priest shall pronounce the house clean, because the plague is healed..." )Leviticus 14:33-57) If a house had leprosy, if a house was unclean, a priest was to come an look upon the plague. If the plague was spread in the walls of the house, the priest would command that they take away the stones in which the plague was, and they were to cast them into an unclean place without the city. Then the priest would command the house to be scraped within round about, and they were to pour out the dust that they scraped off without the city into an unclean place. They were to then take other stones, and put them in the place of those stones; and he would take other mortar, and plaster the house. After all this, if the plague broke out again in the house and spread, it would be declared a fretting leprosy; it would be unclean. He then was to break down the house, the stone of it, and the timber thereof, and all the mortar of the house; and he would carry them forth out of the city into an unclean place... The priest was to cleanse the house with blood and water. (Leviticus 14:29-53).

    A house with leprosy was cleansed with blood and water... Jesus Christ, being the Great High Priest, has declared all houses unclean; yet, we all will not be carried forth out of the city into an unclean place.

    Thank God, we can be pronounced clean: by Jesus Christ; His blood, and His water, we can be made clean.

    Jesus Christ came not to destroy mens' lives, but to save them. People and houses can be cleansed.
