1 Peter 1:19
19 But <alla> with the precious <timios> blood
<haima> of Christ <Christos>, as <hos> of a lamb
<amnos> without blemish <amomos> and <kai> without spot
19 but with precious blood, as of
a lamb unblemished and spotless, the blood of Christ. NASB
The lamb is the
innocent sacrifice, the animal taken without fight or resistance of any
kind.The blood is symbolic of the work for
Christ on the Cross.
Jesus did not bleed
out literally, as the sacrificial animal did, but the term blood of Christ is
a reference to His spiritual death, after the fashion as the animal sacrifices
died from bleeding to death, and it was not their bleeding but their death
which was the issue and principle being taught in all of the animal sacrifices.
In fact, when Jesus
went to the Cross, He bled very little.His
hands and feet were punctured with nails, but He was alive on the Cross when He
spoke, and when the skies went totally dark at noon until three o clock.For those three hours He screamed as no one
could see Him, as that was the duration of His punishment.
Then after the
punishment of the Cross was completed, the skies grew light again, and He spoke

genuine humanity), separated and went to their respect destinations in the
after-life.In Hades, He announced the
victory of the Cross.
After three days, He
returned (body, soul, and spirit) into the grave where He was laid, and He
arose after the third day.He met with
the apostles and then ascended into heaven.At some point during this time, He went to Paradise, and retrieved all
of the Old Testament believers, who had been held captive, as it were, pending
the outcome of the Cross.He led them
out of Paradise and into heaven.And
that was probably a phenomenal procession, a victory parade, celebrated by all
of the angels in heaven.
We can only imagine
the party that went on then.Paradise is
But it was this
Jesus, who came into this world, perfect, without blemish, and without sin, who
was the only person qualified to go to the Cross in behalf of all of humanity.
There is no other
person qualified nor capable of doing the work, which Christ did.No religion, no philosophy, no belief, no
matter how good they might sound, can duplicate or accomplish that which Jesus
