What does Leviticus 15 mean? This chapter of Leviticus deals specifically with “bodily discharges.” Why is a bodily discharge unclean and why does it make people and objects ritually unclean? What is uncleanness all about?
In this Bible study, Wes McAdams is joined by Abby Kaplan, author of the book, Misreading Ritual. If the sacrifices and rituals in Leviticus have ever confused or disgusted you, you should consider reading Kaplan’s excellent book. You may come away from studying Leviticus with a whole new perspective on the beauty of ritual and the beauty of God.
