1. The justice, righteousness,
and truth of God (absolute standards),
demand a sacrifice from the offending creature (flesh and blood) -
2. Blood = substitution
and satisfaction of God's absolute standards -
Hebrews 2:14; 9:12, 26; 10:29; Genesis 3:21; Leviticus 16:15-16.
3. Death and blood teach
angels and men about God's absolute
standards. Compare 1 Peter 1:12.
4. The Blood of Christ demonstrates God's humility, cp. Philippians 2:8.
