The Divine Son - The Blood of God
One of the most striking statements in the New Testament is that it was the very blood of God that was poured out on the cross. Paul said to church elders:
"Be on guard for yourselves and for all the flock, among which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to shepherd the church of God which He purchased with His own blood. (Act 20:28)
When God became man, whatever he the person of Jesus Christ did was not only the activity of humanity, but it was also the activity of deity. So we have the astonishing statement that it was the blood of God that was poured out on the cross. This shows in the most brutal terms what God the Father was willing to do for us through his infinitely loved son. We as his children are eternally secure because that is not merely the blood of a human being, but in truth the blood of God representing the death of God for us and our sins.
