June 5, 2018: Day 52 – Leviticus 12

Some of these Scriptures are interesting in that they reflect some of the information that we have in the New Testament in reference to Jesus.  Go to Luke 2:21-40 and we will see that Jesus is presented in the temple in accordance to what the Levitical laws requires.  Notice that the family is given a choice on what to bring.  If you have wealthy you can bring a lamb, if not then doves and pigeons will suffice.  Do you see what Jesus’ family ends up bringing into the temple?  The least sacrifice, the doves and pigeons and not the lamb.  That should tell us something about the financial welfare of Jesus’ family.  They offered the lowest sacrifice possible to compensate for the purity of Mary after the birth of Jesus.
