WARNING: Body Function Talk Ahead!!!
This post is late because, honestly, I was watching the Super Bowl (sorry about that).
I wish I had read it sooner because these 2 chapters are some of my favorite in Leviticus.
I have no idea!
I just find them interesting.
Lev. 14:54 pretty much sums it up: "These are the instructions for dealing with serious skin diseases, including scabby sores, and mildew, whether on or in a house, and a swelling on the skin, a rash, or discoloration of skin."
Part of it is... ewwww.....
And part of it is... ahhhh!!!....
There are 2 other parts (the last 2 chapters) that interest me. Of course, being a lady, I found the menstrual cycle thing interesting (and very cool that it's even mentioned in the Bible. Not to be graphic, but I bet it was an... ordeal... back then dealing with that. They didn't have-- wings.)
The other part is the entire chapter 15-- male bodily discharges.
The first time I read this in B90, this caught my eye and I had to text my sister about it (aren't you glad you aren't my sister?)
Basically, the first part is a man with a 'discharge'.
And the second part of the chapter is when a man 'discharges' his... uh... self. His happy swimmers as it were.
Here's my question... how many different types of 'discharges' are there? The whole first part of Ch. 15, I *thought* I knew what was going on, but then at the end I was like, no... I had no idea.
I think I 'might' know, but I don't exactly know--
The bottom like is God cares about your health, and wash, wash, wash!
So, there ya have it... aren't you glad you waited all day for this post ;)
BTW, check back tomorrow because Rebecca Aarup actually has a GREAT post for you (and, as far as I know, there aren't any discharges...)
