This commentary weaves together the interpretations of Christian exegetes, spanning the past two thousand years, who have concerned themselves with that most mysterious of texts, the book of Leviticus. Even when their commentaries seem most fanciful, the depths of meaning of the Hebrew text comes through in all its many and diverse translations and applications. What we discover is evidence of a biblical text at work in some of the most eloquent of spokespersons throughout the generations. The third book of the Bible is happily enjoying a resurgence of interest in Jewish and Christian quarters alike, being received as a book for the life of the faithful community. What is attempted here is the story of its Western-Christian reception.The Jews do not think that infants carry sin, but that is an error, thinks Peter. ... Rupert of Deutz is clear that the chapter teaches the radical nature of original sin. ... to make the connec- tion of menstruating (even though it would suit Leviticus 15 more) to the passage in Isaiah 64:6 (a€œour righteousness like menstrual ragsa€).
