The priest must take some blood….(14:14)

During the sacrificial rites performed on the formerly afflicted person, the officiating priest must apply some of the blood to various points on the person’s body.

The excess negative energy generated by the sins of gossip and slander is counteracted and overcome by studying Torah “excessively”; which causes and excess of positive energy. However, for our Torah study indeed to elicit Divine energy and infuse it into creation, we must study it with pure motives, namely, in order to fulfil G-d’s will and disseminate Divine consciousness, rather than for personal interest or as an intellectual pursuit.

Therefore, just as the Priest had to officiate at the purification process, our study of Torah must be overseen by our “inner” priest. The Priest in the Tabernacle personified total self – nullification to G-d; similarly, we should strive to study Torah with a pure and humble heart.

THIS SHABBAT IS CALLED SHABBAT HAGADOL – The Great Shabbat, for the great miracle which occurred when the Jewish people were instructed to take a lamb on the 10th day of Nissan and offer it as a sacrifice (the Pascal Offering) on the 14th day of Nissan. The Egyptian God now being used by the Hebrews as an offering to their / our G-d could have ended in battle, but miraculously all remained calm.
