Physical healing was not enough to admit them back into the camp of Israel. Having been considered ceremonially unclean they must now be ceremonially cleansed. Not until the leper had been baptized with water was he pronounced clean. "... also he shall wash his flesh in water, and he shall be clean" (Lev. 14:9). We have but to remember that Gentiles were considered "unclean" (Acts 10) to see the connection, for when our Lord sent the eleven forth after His resurrection, He sent them to "teach all nations, baptizing them" (Matt.
1:6). "And ye are complete in Him, which is the head of all principality and power: "In whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ: "Buried with Him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with Him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised Him from the dead" (Col. 2:10-12). 33 To Saul of Tarsus, Ananias said: "Arise and be baptized, and wash away thy sins, calling on the name of the Lord" (Acts 22:16).
As that great curtain was rent and fell apart they could only view it as a judgment from God. And that judgment revealed the fact that the "most holy place," which should have housed the divine Presence, had been forsaken by God and had become a barren, empty place. The glory had long ago departed. No other place had yet been appointed for the worship of God, and this is why the apostles and disciples continued to worship there, but be it noted that it was in this very temple that the apostles called upon Israel to repent, be baptized for the remission of sins, and accept the Messiah they had crucified--a very different message from that which many fundamentalists erroneously read into their words.
