    Bob Davis; as the Lord said, "For a Testimony unto them;" (Leviticus 14), "This shall be the law of the leper in the day of his cleansing.." with the cleansing of the leper, the Priests were prescribed certain procedures with specific materials, with the blood of a sacrifice, and oil representing the Spirit; and pronouncing him clean was to show the work of Christ to cleanse and restore us to God.
