In the Old Testament, God commanded his people to “不” consume blood of any flesh.
LV 17:11-14 因为所有肉体的生命都是它的血。
Here are a couple examples of “新” commands that supersede “old"命令
- Jesus declared all foods clean (Mk 7:19). This command superseded the old command that certain foods be regarded as unclean. LV 11:1-8
- Jews “were” the chosen people. All people who are faithful and obedient to the Lord’s commands are now the chosen.
- The New Covenant replaced the Old Covenant.
- New Passover replaced the Old Passover.
The Lord commands the faithful to eat his flesh and drink his blood
Jesus said to them, Amen, amen, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you do not have life within you. John 6:53
Drink it, all of you, for this is my blood of the covenant. Matt 26:27-28
