February 19th, Leviticus 11-13: Kosher and uncleanliness

Leviticus 11 contains the definition of kosher.

Leviticus 11:3 says:
3 You may eat any animal that has a split hoof completely divided and that chews the cud.

From the water, the Israelites could eat anything with fins and scales. Locusts, katydids, crickets, and grasshoppers made the kosher list. They had to be careful not to touch the carcasses of such animals lest they be made unclean.

Leviticus 12 details the purification for a woman after childbirth, and what to do if she cannot afford a lamb to offer as a sacrifice.

Leviticus 13 explains how the priests were to declare someone clean or unclean from the color and markings of skin problems. Those were made to be unclean were to be quarantined for seven days and checked again at the end of that week of isolation.

Question: Aren’t you amazed that the LORD has plans for our hygiene and cleanliness?
