Leprosy and Uncleanness

To be a leper in the Bible meant ceremonial uncleanness; it meant distance from God’s special presence. In Mark 1:40-45, Jesus is restoring a man not only from physical uncleanness, but from spiritual uncleanness. By healing this man Jesus is destroying the exilic state of the unclean, and bringing them near to him and his blessings.
