֍ ֍ ֍ Where are we in our studies?

The Book of Leviticus (/lɪˈvɪtɪkəs/)

The English name Leviticus comes from the Latin Leviticus,


which is in turn from the Greek Greek Λευιτικόν, Leuitikon, referring to the priestly tribe of the Israelites, “Levi.”

The Greek expression is in turn a variant of the rabbinic Hebrew torat kohanim,[2] “law of priests.”

In Hebrew the book is called Vayikra (Hebrew: וַיִּקְרָא), from the first word of the book, Vayikra, “He [Yehovah] called.”

I really enjoyed the views offered on the 119 Ministries website concerning this

Torah portion so I included them below along with the link to their page.

119 Ministries

II Kings 5:5-6
So he went, taking with him ten talents of silver, six thousand shekels of gold, and ten changes of clothing.

6 And he brought the letter to the king of Israel, which read,

“When this letter reaches you, know that I have sent to you Naaman my servant, that you may cure him of his leprosy.”

II Kings 5:22-23
Please give them a talent of silver and two changes of clothing.’”

23 And Naaman said, “Be pleased to accept two talents.”

And he urged him and tied up two talents of silver in two bags,

with two changes of clothing, and laid them on two of his servants.


6,000 gold = 6 days of man and then restoration and rest on the 7th day
10 talents of silver = 10 tribes (Northern Kingdom/House of Israel) “changed and clothed(10) in the Word of God (resurrection)


2 talents of silver = 2 tribes of Judah (Southern Kingdom/House of Judah)
2 changes of clothing (changed and clothed in the Word of God)

10+2 = 12 tribes (restored House of Israel with the House of Judah) at the resurrection on the 7th day.

119 Ministries

12 YHWH spoke to Moses, saying, 2 “Speak to the people of Israel, saying,

If a woman conceives and bears a male child, then she shall be unclean seven days.

As at the time of her menstruation, she shall be unclean. 3 And on the eighth day the flesh of his foreskin shall be circumcised.

4 Then she shall continue for thirty-three days in the blood of her purifying.

She shall not touch anything holy, nor come into the sanctuary until the days of her purifying are completed.

5 But if she bears a female child, then she shall be unclean for two weeks, as in her menstruation.

And she shall continue in the blood of her purifying for sixty-six days.

Here is an interesting connection to consider.

With a male child being born, a woman is unclean for 7 days (a reference to the 7,000 years – the resurrection does not occur until the 7th day)

The eighth day and circumcision is a reference to the covenant of Abraham.

The mother is unclean for another 33 days. 33+7 is 40 days.

7,000/40 = 175

Genesis 25:7
These are the days of the years of Abraham’s life, 175 years.

Often, the year of someone’s death might mean something.

For example:

Enoch died at 365, possibly signifying the change of a 360 solar year of Noah’s time, to the 365-day solar year we observe today.

Moses died at 120 on the mountain. 120 x 50(Jubilee) = 6,000. Moses was a type of Yeshua.

Yeshua will arrive at Mt. Zion after 6 days (6,000 years).

Dominic St Pierre 119 Ministries

I’ve struggled with this passage about women bearing children for a long time.

I still have no satisfying answer to why is it considered a sin to bear a child.

After her purification, she must offer a sin sacrifice for childbearing, meanwhile,

it was one of the first commandments to adam to multiply and have children.

Please help, it seems so odd and outrageous I don’t understand.

119 Ministries  Dominic St Pierre

Instead of “sin offering” a better translation here might be a “purification offering”

119 Ministries  Dominic St Pierre

A simple explanation is that sin offerings were often brought for purification purposes.

When that happened, the sin offering was not a punishment for sin or a consequence of iniquity, it was simply part of the purification ritual.

Along similar lines, a person who suffered an unnatural bodily discharge and a person being purified of leprosy also brought sin offerings.
