with Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones
The Blood of Jesus Christ Sunday, December 29, 2019
Romans 3:25 - The Old Testament proclaims the need for a Savior. Even the Jews knew to look for a Messiah. By saying “in his blood,” Paul is alluding to the Old Testament practice of animal sacrifice for the forgiveness of sins. Prior to Christ’s sacrifice, believers would have to sacrifice a clean animal in order for their sins to be blotted out. The blood of the animal is what deemed their sins forgiven, meaning that the death of the animal was necessary. The term blood is used to bring this teaching in line with the whole teaching of the Old Testament. Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones reminds us that any interpretation of the New Testament should never contradict the teaching of the New Testament. In contrast, Paul is now saying that blood means life rather than death. Since the Jews only thought of life in regards to a body, Christ’s sacrifice now shows that the blood he poured out means life! The Jews had to find an animal to be their substitute, but now God himself has made Christ our substitute once and for all. Dr. Lloyd-Jones encourages us to rejoice in the blood of Christ because he has paid our ransom!
