Andre, Well said. Good reminder about reading Scripture slow. I need to do that regularly and seek to ponder and let God's revelation to us in Christ sink down into the depths of who I am and out from that into my daily life. Thanks!

Sadly, unlike LL, many of us who read over it too quickly, can be too familiar with this verse and not find it shocking.

When I slow down and meditate on it, consider who Jesus is and what he is saying here, it impacts me.

Thanks for the reminder

DLW, They're doing better overall, though the system is broke here (from my perspective). She's had two or three silent heart attacks and one normal heart attack. But they keep withdrawing her Medicaid when she's suppose to take around $6500 worth of meds a month for her heart alone. She's only 46 with no dependents so they withdraw her Medicaid.

I don't understand it. But pretty much the rest is taken care of though the system still hasn't come through largely on it.

As for your thought on appeals to the OT, I so much agree. I would encourage people to go to your post.

Interesting thoughts there. Thanks!

How are your friends who were in trouble before?

I am wary of appeals to the OT that don't take into account how Jesus' death changed things...

The blood part too for Jews would be shocking and probably revolting. Though Jesus was speaking metaphorically of course. Even that may not have taken away the edge off that saying.

Thanks, L.L. The imagery is vivid and shocking. We certainly don't talk that way. At that time it was shocking in Jewish ears, as well.

The Old Testament did tell them, "Taste and see that the Lord is good." (Psalm 34)

Even today, I find this passage shocking. I can't imagine how it sounded to Jewish ears.

Of course, I understand He meant it in terms of an incredible level of intimacy. Still, the images are strong.
