Ritual Purification, Cleanness, Separation & Health
You may think that without the Temple, ritual purification is now irrelevent to our lives - but I disagree.
It is impossible to literally obey all of the ritual cleanness laws today. There remains, however, an area of analogy to these laws, and that is to conduct ourselves in such a way that we (both as Jews broadly and as Jewish or Gentile disciples of Yeshua) who are believers are distinguishable from those who are not.
G-d calls us to live a holy and clean life before Him - and isn't that just as important today and as it was in ancient Israel?
