Eating Blood

That surely sounds like a scandalous topic for a sermon. But if Moses and Jesus preached about it, I think we ought to as well. In fact, to a curious soul, it is an irresistible invitation to investigate the meaning. Why did God strictly forbid eating blood? But then, why did Jesus tell people to eat his blood? And of all things, what would this have to do with dwelling in the presence of the holy Lord? The world is stranger than we thought, but it is also more full of wonder.

Join us this Lord's Day to sup with God.

I'd like to hear this one. We had a discussion of this very topic yesterday in Senior Doctrinal Seminar.
