Be Holy as I am Holy
Creation or Fall, Death, and Abnormality
Genesis 1 divides animals into three spheres: animals that walk on the land, animals that swim in the water, animals that fly in the air. Leviticus 11 lists as unclean certain animals that are connected to land (vv. 2-8), water (vv. 9-12), and air (vv. 13-25).
These animals symbolize a mixing or blurring of categories. So animals that “transgressed” boundaries or overlapped spheres were to be avoided as unclean. (Copan, Is God a Moral Monster)
