The Bible is a blood-soaked book. The culmination of the theme of blood is the "precious blood of Christ" (1 Pet. 1:19) and the unique centrality, cost, and the capability of Christ’s blood. The centrality of Christ’s blood as the fulfillment of the blood themes throughout the Scriptures. The cost of His blood in Gethsemane and Gabbatha and Golgotha to include even the forsakenness of His own dear Father. Finally, the capability of His blood in accomplishing full-orbed salvation for us through His atonement in order to justify and cleanse us, to sanctify us, and to open heaven for us.
