Leviticus 14

Chapter 14

14:3  And the priest shall go forth out of the camp; and the priest shall look, and, behold, if the plague of leprosy be healed in the leper;

go forth

As a type of Gospel salvation the points are:

(1) The leper does nothing Romans 4:5 Romans 4:5 .

(2) the priest seeks the leper, not the leper the priest Luke 19:10 .

(3) "with-out shedding of blood is no remission" Hebrews 9:22 .

(4) "and if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain" 1 Corinthians 15:17 .

14:4  Then shall the priest command to take for him that is to be cleansed two birds alive and clean, and cedar wood, and scarlet, and hyssop:

birds

The bird slain, and the live bird, dipped in blood and released, present the two aspects of salvation in Romans 4:25 "delivered for our offences, and raised again for our justification."

14:5  And the priest shall command that one of the birds be killed in an earthen vessel over running water:

vessel

The earthen vessel typifies the humanity of Christ, as the running water typifies the Holy Spirit as the "Spirit of life" Romans 8:2 "put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit." 1 Peter 3:18

14:20  And the priest shall offer the burnt offering and the meat offering upon the altar: and the priest shall make an atonement for him, and he shall be clean.

14:29  And the rest of the oil that is in the priest's hand he shall put upon the head of him that is to be cleansed, to make an atonement for him before the LORD.
