The Life is in the Blood

Blood is physical, its spiritual... Blood is our life force. Today, we're talking about how views on the blood have evolved and how they tie in with the gospel!
But you shall not eat flesh with its life, that is, its blood. Genesis 9:4 NASB

This episode talks about all the ways humans have viewed blood, what our blood tells us, and how that relates to the Word! Spoiler alert: everything points to the gospel. It points to Yeshua/Jesus/Christ/Messiah! It points to YHWH's heart! It points to the presence of the Holy Spirit.

About

Author Image Author Image I love reading the Word of God. With prayer God's Word reveals so much: from comfort to temperance, from perspective to affirmation. Digging into the depths of the Word, cross-referencing history, language and time differences, is a passion of mine. In March of 2015 I decided to go back through the Bible doing an in depth study on each section I read. Eventually I decided to share my journal of notes as I partake in this journey. I hope you are blessed by God and inspired to pursue a deeper relationship with Him. I love reading and learning about God, nature, and science. I am interested in how it all connects. The Creator's fingerprints are all over his creation. We can learn so much about Him and how we came to be by exploring the world around us. Join me as I explore the world and draw closer to the One who created it all.
