Even if we don’t often think in these terms, every culture places different people, spaces, animals, food and time into categories of clean and unclean. In the book of Leviticus, God is doing the same: drawing these boundaries for his people, to give them a map leading to holiness. But when Jesus came, he re-drew this map, to extend the boundaries to even the most shameful and “unclean” people who trust in him, whose lives are redeemed by his perfect honour and purity.
