A God who understands (Leviticus 13)

Last Sunday, one of our preachers was giving a message on Mark 1:40-42, in which Jesus healed a leper. And since I was going through Leviticus anyway, I decided to look again at the passages on the lepers. And in … Continue reading

Some things strike me here as I read this passage. First, the Holy Place, the tabernacle, and the altar were considered stained by the sin of the people. Some people wonder why God can’t just allow anyone into heaven. The … Continue reading
