Leviticus 15:28-30

Lev 15:28 But if she is cleansed of her discharge, she will count for herself seven days, and after that she will be clean.
Lev 15:29 And on the eighth day she will take two turtledoves or two pigeons and bring them to the priest, to the entrance of the conference tent.
Lev 15:30 And the priest will use one for a mistake offering and the other for an ascending offering. And the priest will provide reconciliation for her in Yahveh’s sight for her contaminated discharge.

beyond personal

Like some of the other sacrifices prescribed in the tabernacle system, these provide reconciliation, but do not target a personal sin. Instead, these sacrifices and ceremonies remind us that there is an evil and a brokenness in our world that goes beyond personal. These incidents in this chapter speak of the very essence of life itself, and reveal that there is something wrong with normal. The evil that breaks the life cycle is death, and Christ will overcome that evil too. He is the resurrection and the life.

LORD, thank you for the hope of immortality.
