Reversing The Law of Unclean

As I ponder the story of the healing of the woman who had the issue of constant bleeding for 12 years, I am struck by the powerful picture it provides of how Jesus surpasses the Law of Moses. (Read the full story here)

According to the Law ( Leviticus 15:25-27 ) not only was the woman declared unclean, but so was anything she touched.

Think about it for a moment. As soon as the woman touched the hem of Jesus’ robe, she rendered him unclean. Yet that is not what happens. Instead of Jesus becoming unclean and contaminated by her, she was healed and restored by the healing power that flowed out from him!

This is who Jesus is. He is Jehovah Rapha – The LORD who heals.
