Leviticus purity laws preached in churches for first time

PERTH, WA — Church pastors in Australia are once again in amazement at the modern relevance of the Bible after having discovered ancient Leviticus purity laws in the Scriptures that appear to speak directly to the COVID19 outbreak.

Pastor Brent Harrison, of Life Eternal Restoration Church in Perth, claimed to have discovered the passages after praying that the Lord would speak to him in this time of crisis.

“There is a book in the Bible called Leviticus that, as best as I could determine, has not been used to preach from in Australia’s entire history”, Pastor Brent said.

“I must confess I didn’t even realise the book was there. When I read the Bible, I usually skip straight from Exodus to Joshua to avoid boredom.”

“But it turns out Leviticus is super awesome and speaks straight to our current needs and regulations and I am simply stoked that God has provided us a way through this outbreak.”

Passages included in Pastor Brent’s ‘Super Sunday Sermon’ series include:

‘Anyone with such a defiling disease must wear torn clothes, let their hair be unkempt, cover the lower part of their face and cry out, ‘Unclean! Unclean! As long as they have the disease, they remain unclean. They must live alone; they must live outside the community.’ Leviticus 13:45-46

‘Whoever touches the man who has the infection without rinsing his hands with water must wash their clothes and bathe in water, and they will be unclean until evening. A clay pot the man touches must be broken, and any wooden article is to be rinsed with water. Leviticus 15:11-12

When asked what place other Levitical passages on regulations and sacrifices had in regard to Christian living and the significance of Jesus, Pastor Harrison replied he was still a bit confused but he was sure that revelation would come.

It is further reported that Victorian pastors are closely reading the book of Exodus for similar relevance.
