Leviticus 11-13

Leviticus 11

  1. What would the distinction between clean and unclean food teach Israel about God and his worship? See verses 44, 45. Consider the great changes in their habits that the coming of God to dwell among them brought about. Cf. 1 Pet. 1:14-16; Eph. 4:22-24.
  2. How did our Lord show that such distinctions are not now binding? What constitutes defilement in God’s sight? Cf. mark 7:14-23.


Leviticus 12:1-13:46

  1. Did the mere face of being born a Jew give a child a place in the covenant? See 12:3, Note 1 below, and Deut. 10:15, 16; 30; 6. How do the principles illustrated here apply today?
  2. From chapter 13 trace some of the parallels that exist between the plague of leprosy and the plague of sin.


  1. 12:3. Circumcision had a twofold significance, namely, identification with God’s covenant people, and purification from unfitness for such a role.
  2. 12:8. Cf. Luke 2:22-24.



Leviticus 13:47-14:32

  1. If leprosy is an illustration of sin, what is the general teaching of 13:47-59 regarding sin-contaminated habits and practices?
  2. What is the significance of the fact that the leper had to be healed before he was cleansed from the defilement of his leprosy? Cf. john 3:3; Gal. 6:15.
