[19] Shedding Of Blood Constitutes A Sacrifice

The Lord while offering this Sacrament uttered the following: (Mat 26:28) "For this is My blood of the new covenant, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.

(Mark 14:24) And He said to them, "This is My blood of the new covenant, which is shed for many.

(Luke 22:20) Likewise He also took the cup after supper, saying, "This cup is the new covenant in My blood, which is shed for you.

(1 Cor 11:24) and when He had given thanks, He broke it and said, "Take, eat; this is My body which is broken for you; do this in remembrance of Me."

So if there is to be the breaking of the Body and shedding of Blood, there must be an altar, as we have discussed this issue before here on st-takla.org in other sections. An Altar requires an altar servant, that is, a priest to offer the sacrifice.

This takes us to an interesting and vital point on the shedding of blood and forgiveness of sin.
