The blood of man is claimed by God; for the 'life is in the blood;' 'the blood is the life.' It therefore must not be eaten; if not offered in sacrifice it must be 'poured upon the earth as water.' "Whoso sheddeth man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed." The blood also maketh atonement for the soul: it must be poured out upon the altar. Genesis 9:4-6 ; Leviticus 17:10-14 ; Deuteronomy 12:23-25 ; Acts 15:29 . In the O.T. dispensation everything in the tabernacle, the priests and their dresses were purged and sanctified by blood, everything being sprinkled with blood, including the book of the law and the people. Hebrews 9:18,21 . This was typical of the blood of the Lord Jesus, which has accomplished everything for the Christian: with His blood He 'purchased' us, Acts 20:28 ; 'justified' us, Romans 5:9 ; 'redeemed,' Ephesians 1:7 ; 'sanctified,' Hebrews 13:12 ; 'cleanseth us from all sin,' 1 John 1:7 ; etc.
