THE SACRED VALUE OF BLOOD (Part 1)

Jehovah God prohibits consumption of blood, either as food or for medical or therapeutic purposes. From the time after the flood, the prohibition with respect to the blood was repeated in the Mosaic Law: “If any man of the house of Israel or any foreigner who is residing in your midst eats any sort of blood, I will certainly set my face against the one who is eating the blood, and I will cut him off from among his people” (Leviticus 17:10).

The Atonement Value of the Blood

After repeating this ban, Jehovah God explained the reason of this Act on the blood: “For the life of the flesh is in the blood, and I myself have given it on the altar for you to make atonement for yourselves, because it is the blood that makes atonement by means of the life in it. 12 That is why I have said to the Israelites: “None of you should eat blood, and no foreigner who is residing in your midst should eat blood” (Leviticus 17:11,12).

The blood has an Atonement Value that could be used, in the biblical time, in the framework of sacrifices of animals as symbol of necessity of Atonement for the forgiveness of the sins; in this case, the blood was put at the foot of the sacrificial altar. This restitution of life of the animal, to God, was symbolized by the shedding of blood of the animal that would be eaten: “You and your households must eat there before Jehovah your God and rejoice in all your undertakings, because Jehovah your God has blessed you” (Deuteronomy 12:7).
