People's Bible Notes for Matthew 26:28


Mt 26:28 This is my blood. A sign or emblem of my blood. New testament. Covenant is the preferable sense here, as in most passages where the word occurs in the New Testament; the new covenant is contrasted with "the covenant which God made with our fathers" (Ac 3:25). Shed for many. Shed, in one sense, for all, for the benefits of the blood are offered to all; but "many" accept it and are saved.
