Hebrews 9:18-22

18 This is why even the first covenant was not put into effect without blood. 19 When Moses had proclaimed every command of the law to all the people, he took the blood of calves, together with water, scarlet wool and branches of hyssop, and sprinkled the scroll and all the people. 20 He said, “This is the blood of the covenant, which God has commanded you to keep.”[e] 21 In the same way, he sprinkled with the blood both the tabernacle and everything used in its ceremonies. 22 In fact, the law requires that nearly everything be cleansed with blood, and without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness.

  1. God’s rule. There must be bloodshed for cleansing and forgiving sins. No debate.

    However, in His mercy, He did not require my blood, or the blood of my offspring. He offered up His own Son to fulfill His requirement. He had the only perfect offering, and He gave it in love. To glorify His perfect Son, and to make a way for us to be redeemed back to Him.
