Biblical Leprosy, a Sign or a Scourge?

Probably one of the oddest topics in the Bible is that of a person who has leprosy. The Bible spends two full chapters just talking about it. It begins with the diagnosis and ends with what to do if a house has leprosy. Clearly, this is not an ordinary disease! In fact, the instructions on how to treat leprosy would at times almost ensure that the disease would spread. So what is leprosy as described by the Bible? Why is so much time spent on it? And why is it so important?
