The Leper in Mark 1:40-45

Leviticus 21:17-24 lists many physical defects. These defects hindered the priests from coming near to God. In Mark 1, the leper (a serious defect, according to the law) comes to Jesus. Jesus, who fulfills the ceremonial laws, touches the leper making him immediately clean, defectless. The leper becomes a blameless priest. In encountering Jesus, he enters the true veil and approaches the true altar (Lev. 21:23).
