What is called Leprosy today, is different from the curse/sickness/disease that is called Leprosy in the english translations of the bible.
But the Only way Leprosy is described as in the scriptures is; Pale skin that sometimes (if it covered the skull) came along with thin Blonde/yellow hair.
Sufferers of leprosy (lepers) in the third world are commonly forced to leave their communities and join what are referred to as “leper colonies”. In many places in the world, lepers are seen as unclean or cursed.
The Bible makes numerous mentions of a disease which many believe is leprosy, a claim disputed by many theologians and doctors who believe that the confusion is the result of poor translations from Hebrew to Greek to English (especially since the symptoms the Bible describes are not consistent with modern definitions of the disease). One of the mentions of this disease instructs sufferers to live alone, tear their clothes and yell “Unclean! Unclean!”. One of Christ’ abilities was said to be a healing leprosy and the associated blindness, Jesus was also said to allow his disciples to heal leprosy in his name. However, some ex-lepers weren’t as thrilled since they lost their ability to solicit alms.
Today’s definition “A slowly progressive, chronic infectious disease caused by the bacterium Mycobacterium leprae, that damages nerves, skin, and mucous membranes, and can lead to loss of sensation, paralysis, gangrene, and deformity if untreated.”
Also, includes countless classifications for leprosy:
Early/ indeterminate leprosy
Diffuse leprosy of Lucio and Latapí
let’s see if we can narrow down which is definition is more in sync with the scriptures….
