Week of March 2

Bible Reading Plan: Week of March 2

March 2: Leviticus 13

Suggested questions:

1) When a person had what appeared to be leprosy, they were declared "unclean" and isolated for some time. This isolation had both spiritual and physical implications. Why would the person be isolated or quarantined?

2) Based upon isolation over the physical concerns, do we see anything similar to this today?

March 3: Leviticus 14

Suggested questions:

1) Why do you think there was concern over the plague (mold) being in a house?

2) The elements of the unusual ritual in verses 4-7 point to the future sacrifice of the Messiah on the cross, who would cleanse those stained with the leprosy of sin. Can you point to a parallel in any of the Gospel accounts?

March 4: Leviticus 15-16

Suggested questions:

1) The reasons for these guidelines for cleansing were: a) spiritual/ritual b) physical/health c) neither d) both a & b

2) What is a scapegoat?

March 5: Leviticus 17-18

1) Instruction is given not to consume blood, and the reason given is because life is in the blood and blood is shed for a purpose; what is that purpose?
