Leviticus as Resurrection

A thoughtful parishioner, Alice Stout, concludes her research paper on Leviticus 11 and the dietary laws by stating that “Leviticus is a resurrection story. It resounds with the hope of a New Jerusalem because it puts the old to death. The dietary codes turn food into a fast, and turn creation into an abomination so that they can all be made new. Just as a seed must die before it produces a tree, so our daily litany of eating must become unclean before it can be made clean.”
