“For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.”
King James Version (KJV)
26:28 This is the sign of my blood, whereby the new testament or covenant is confirmed. Which is shed for many - As many as spring from Adam.
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.
