Old Testament Law is difficult to understand, especially on the topic of blood. Blood belongs to God alone, and menstruation makes women unclean half the month. Miriam, Moses's older sister, illustrates the disappointment and disillusionment people with periods may feel when reading these verses. But in his treatment of the Bleeding Woman and of the Last Supper, Jesus takes away the shame of menstruation. In place of shame, Jesus shares with all people his divinity.
