Bodily Discharges

To read the Bible in a year, read Leviticus 15-17.
As you read Leviticus 15, you will discover that the Law of Moses dealt with very specific issues, in this case, that of bodily discharges. The Lord spoke to Moses (Leviticus 15:1), and revealed what was to be done when various things happened to make a person unclean from bodily discharges (vv. 2-14). Then He said, “Then the priest shall offer them, the one as a sin offering and the other as a burnt offering. So the priest shall make atonement for him before the LORD because of his discharge” (v. 15). Those fifteen verses showed many possible situations of uncleanness and what the priests were do to with people. That is only fifteen verses! As you know from reading Leviticus and other Books of the Law, many more laws God delivered to Israel.
All those laws help us to appreciate the simplicity of Christianity. When people start adding things to the Scriptures that we must do, things start to get complicated. Are you one of those people who have added things that cannot be supported by the Scriptures?
