So Pay, Anthony is asking, how did Jesus have innocent blood? I didn’t know that was the next question.

Speaker 2

Why not? But I can answer that one.

Speaker 1

Okay, go for it.

Speaker 2

So how does Jesus have innocent blood? And I suppose the implied meaning here is Christ. The alternative would have been he would have sinned and not have innocent blood. I believe the Bible is pretty clear, he was innocent. So we see in one Peter one, verses eight to 19, it says, knowing that you were not redeemed with corruptible things like silver and gold from your aimless conduct received by tradition from your fathers, but with the precious blood of Christ as a land without blemish and without spot. So here Peter is saying, yeah, Christ was perfect, there’s nothing wrong with them. And then we find in Hebrews 415 it says, we do not have a high priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, rather implying Christ can sympathize with our weaknesses, but despite that but he was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin. So price was tempted in every way like we are, and maybe to get drunk, to be promiscuous, to do this and that and that, but he at all times did not cave into those sins. Those temptations did not sin. Romans 519 says, by one man’s disobedience obedience, many were made sinners.

Speaker 2

So also by one man’s obedience, many will be made righteous. So Christ was righteous and he was obedient, and through that we will be made righteous. Revelation Five nine and they sang a new song saying, you are worthy to take the scroll, this is for him to Christ, and to open its seals where you were slain, and have redeemed us to God by your blood, out of every tribe, in every tongue and nation, we are redeemed by his blood he was slain, but he is worthy. Why was he worthy? Because he was the perfect Lamb without spot and blemish. You look further down in that same chapter, revelation five, verses eleven to twelve, it says, and then I looked and I heard a voice of many angels around the throne, the living creatures and elders, and the number of them was 10,000 times 10,000 and thousands of thousands. That’s like the biggest number these guys could comprehend back then. Verse twelve, it says, same with a loud voice, worthy is the Lamb who was slain to receive power and riches and wisdom and strength and honor, glory and blessings. We often gloss over these really quickly, but in here is again, so much of Christ passed the test.

Speaker 2

Christ was obedient, he made it through. His blood is acceptable because he was innocent. And yet Satan and sin killed him, because that’s the thing sin does. Sin will destroy even when it’s undeserved. Romans 834, the last verse here I’ll talk about says, for what the law could not do, and that it was weak through the flesh. God did by sending his own Son in the likeness of simple flesh. So he wasn’t in simple flesh, but he was in the likeness of simple flesh on account of sin. He condemned sin in the flesh that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the spirit. He condemns sin in the flesh. How did he do it? How did he condemn Sin? Again, it was what I just said. Because he was perfect. He never sinned, he never did anything wrong. He was totally innocent, and yet he was murdered. Yet people desired to kill him, yet Satan wanted to do it. He riled up the mob to kill him. He got the rulers, the Romans, everybody to kill Christ. It was perfect.

Speaker 2

And that was probably the reason they wanted to kill Him the most, was because he was perfect, because he was innocent, because they were calling out the things they were doing. And that’s why he was the most dangerous person even in Isa Satan, because Jesus never did anything wrong and he was proving that we could keep the law of God. It’s possible that a human being can do it, can live by faith and fulfill the requirements of law, fulfill God’s requirement of love, and he did it. And that’s why we can now, through Him, be saved and we could go on forever. Just think about the significance of this. But he was innocent, and the Bible was very clear on that. Praise God for that.

Speaker 1

Yeah, I think it’s a really good question. And when I think about Jesus having innocent blood, obviously blood is a symbol for the sacrifice given for man’s behalf. And God was very specific about the life is in the blood. And so there’s a verse that says we are saved by Christ’s life. And so his innocent life, his innocent blood is what washes over us and makes us clean and gives us access to heaven, basically. So I just think of that as well, but I think that was really good and that’s great.

Speaker 2

That’s a good way to connect some dots there too.
