Washing in Bible times
By Mark Morgan | Jeremiah , Jesus

With COVID-19 leaving its mark all over the world, we are all encouraged to be vaccinated, but also to use soap, hand sanitiser and disinfectants. How does our response to COVID-19 compare with cleansing and washing in Bible times?
Many people have observed that the Law of Moses concentrates heavily on cleanliness and frequently mentions washing – yet it is not the only part of the Bible where this is true.
