> Doesn't Leviticus 10:10 make the system of purity and impurity explicit?

I didn't mean to deny that Leviticus is explicit about listing what is
clean and unclean. But the system behind it all--why, for instance,
among hoofed animals, only cud-chewing ones are clean--is left
implicit.

My tentative remarks about Jewish practice were in reference to the
post-biblical period, by the way.
