The Bible frequently uses the hyssop plant as a symbol of cleansing and purification. In relation to Christ's sacrifice, this herb has a connection to the Passover.
There are parallels in the purification ritual in Leviticus and our cleansing from sin, which we could compare to spiritual leprosy.
The leper's healing teaches that, while Jesus freely healed the man, his cleansing was not really free. The gift he was told to present contains vital instruction.
Martin Collins, asking what it would be like if God looked down on us and viewed us as spiritually dead, suggests that Ephesians 2:1-7 has revealed that we all have been dead spiritually. Thankfully, God regenerated us, rescuing us from this spiritually co. . .
