What is it about the blood of a human being that is so primal, so primitive, so elementary that God requires it to atone for man’s fall? Why blood? Is there something written in the bible or earlier ancient writings that explains this? It nags at me that it is the key to something long lost and buried in ancient tradition and I don’t know what it is. Any help you can give will be greatly appreciated.
I keep singing “Rock of Ages” in my mind and can’t let it go… the blood draws me. …“may the water and the blood from thy wounded side which flowed be for sin a double cure, save from wrath and make me pure…”
