Lev 12: Natural uncleanness: Reproduction impl mortality, and
therefore sin. In perfect state, no marriage/reproduction (Luk 20:36).
Her separation insures complete recovery from the supreme
ordeal of childbirth.
UNCLEAN FOR SEVEN DAYS: Just as the earth will be
"unclean" for 7 days of 1,000 years each!
ON THE EIGHTH DAY THE BOY IS TO BE CIRCUMCISED: As was
commanded to Abraham (Gen 17:12). "Yet, because Moses gave you circumcision
(though actually it did not come from Moses, but from the patriarchs), you
circumcise a child on the Sabbath. Now if a child can be circumcised on the
Sabbath so that the law of Moses may not be broken, why are you angry with me
for healing the whole man on the Sabbath?" (John 7:22,23).
33 DAYS: Cp 33 years of Christ's
2 weeks (cp 1 week) and 66 days (cp 33 days). The cleansing of
woman (Bride of Christ) follows the cleansing of the man (Christ), but takes
twice as long. Twofold "sin": of nature, and of acts (LM 250-252).
