    God is Great! Lot of literal and symbolic meaning. I thoroughly enjoy proof texting each word verse! God, Thank you! Lord, in Your Almighty Name! Amen!!

    Verse 14 gives us more insight into what the blood of Christ has done for us. It atoned for our sin debt in full but it also purges our consciences from dead works so that we can serve Him free from the burden of guilt. Some say it gives us freedom to obey which is false because it lends itself toward perfectionism. The truth is it sets us free from guilt so that we can serve Him! Praise His Name

    Verse 22 says that without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness of sin. This shows why it was necessary for Christ to shed his blood so that we could have forgiveness of sins.

    Randell Pritchet: I disagree with you for God named Jesus and When Jesus died He did not go to dust as we do, God raised HIM from the grave and HE was seen by many and supped with them. HIS will is written all through the Bible.

    And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down. But Christ being come an high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building; The stone which the builders refused is become the head stone of the corner.
