    Verse 20: One who refused to cleanse himself was to be cut off from the congregation. If Jehovah God felt that strongly about physical cleanliness, imagine how strongly he feels about those who refuse to morally and spiritually cleanse themselves.

    To Ron. It seems to me Jesus would have been a clean body he was baptized. John Baptized him So I would say he was clean and anybody that touched him was baptized as well. And also considered clean. But in this part of the Bible Jesus wasn't here yet. So I think being sprinkled with the water was a type of baptizing along with the burnt offerings and such.

    God's Word is always been applied yesterday today and tomorrow in our Lives, When Jesus came He fulfilled the Law, instead of offering a lamb for our sins He offer Himself to pay all of our sin, that's why today we never do the offering of the lamb, all we need is to Accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior and confess all of our sins to Him and He is faithful and Just to forgive us and cleanse us from our unrighteousness.And the Holy Spirit will Dwell in us He will be our Comforter, Our Guide, Our Conscience....God Bless.......
  • Does this still apply today? If it does how should one clean oneself?
  • Augustine for verse 20
    Well! I think numbers 19 : 20 is emphasizing on the value God almighty placed on purity, hence anyone that must visit the sanctuary, must purify himself because God appropriates purity more than physical attendance.

    Good morning,

    Kindly explain/simplify in your own version Numbers 19:19 and give a relative parable in the New Testament.

    Best regards in Jesus name

    TO WHOM THAT THINK THE LAW OF FOOD WAS DONE AWAY WITH, PLEASE READ, MATTHEW 5:17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or to destroy the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill. KJV
    If you will follow up on this go to Acts 10:9 start reading there and thru Acts10:28
    If you will notice Peter never eat of the food,
    and it was not talking of food we eat, but to call no man common or unclean.
    I once thought the same as you, but I will not eat anything that Leviticus chapter 11 says not to eat.
    God bless.

    @ Ron

    You are right. I read the Old Testament and I think of all these laws and I forget that, I do not have to follow these laws. Jesus's death and resurrection was the beginning of new laws. Sometimes I forget, it's a good thing to! I have eaten more pork than would be allowed, if the old laws were meant for Christians today.

    Interesting point to me: In vs 16 and 18, the people touching a dead body are unclean and had to be purified. They were ceremonially unclean for 7 days and could not go into the Tabernacle. When Jesus died on the cross, all the people who handled His body would have been unclean for seven days according to this passage. The irony of it is that Jesus' death and resurrection ushered in the New Testament age. Therefore the Temple and OT practices were no longer necessary. So would those people handling Jesus' body still have to go for cleansing? I think not. Besides, the vail in the Temple was torn in two. What believer in Jesus would want to go in there anyway?
