Notes: March 25, 2008 – Leviticus 14

English language Bible study notes from our three-year, through-the-Bible, reading program.

In Leviticus 14 we discover the two step process whereby a leper who has been cleansed is restored.

I. Restored to the camp (Lev. 3-9)

II. Restored to the tabernacle (Lev. 10-32)

  • General rule (10- 20)
  • Exception for the poor (21-32)

III. Concerning contaminated houses (33-53)

Meditation Points:

  • The examining priest must go outside the camp to determine whether the leper has been healed (3). So the believer is to go out into the world, among the leprous, seeking those whom the Lord would cleanse.
  • Like the priest as his anointing, the cleansed leper must be touched on his ear, and hand, and foot by blood from his sacrifice.
  • God makes provision for the poor. And He bids us to be compassionate also.
  • Verses 1-32, concerning discernment of condition of men, are given to Moses alone; verses 33-53, concerning judging houses, are given to both Moses and Aaron.
  • A house may be so unclean that it must be destroyed; other houses may require reconstruction. So also, some men will be destroyed in their sin, and others will be regenerated.
