12:1 From uncleanness contracted by the touching or eating of external things, he now comes to that uncleanness which ariseth from ourselves.


Discussion for Leviticus 12

    Insight777 "Moses brought the man made laws but Jesus brings truth." The laws of Moses were directly from God. Do not see how they can be consider man made.
  • Insight777
    When Jesus, the Son of God, was born he was without blemish, spot or blame and so was Mary, that is why God chose her. God never viewed his SON as needing a blood sacrifice on an altar to make him acceptable by God! No innocent sheep or bird had to be murdered so Jesus would be clean. The same goes for Mary! A baby sheep did not save mankind! Moses brought the man made laws but Jesus brings truth.

    Reference to verses 3-4 and in Luke 2:21-22 we see Jesus as a child sympathies with all children. He is truly salvation for all. Praise God!

    Leviticus Chapter 12 teaches that newborn babies should be quarantined for a period before being exposed to the public. The same teachings apply to women at certain times. The purification for newborns was practised in my rural community in earlier years.

    1-7 I believe this is the Grace and Glory of God that we should learn by the law; and 8 to make it as easy as possible for us to abide by or in the law.
  • Paul
    I love this Chapter. I read it to my Wife many times. I laugh much, she laughs little. About half as much.
