Metzora

This week’s Bible study is called Metzora | מצורע | “Leper “.

The twenty-eighth reading from the “Bible in a year” is called Metzora (מצורע), or “leper.” The word appears in the second verse of the reading, which says, “This shall be the law of the leper in the day of his cleansing” (Leviticus 14:2). Leviticus 14 spells out the complex purification rituals for the cleansing of a leper and a leprous home. Leviticus 15 briefly covers the laws regarding ritual unfitness stemming from bodily emissions. Except in biblical calendar leap years, Metzora is read together with the previous study , Tazria, on the same week.
