VI. The Blood of the New Covenant (Matthew 26:28)

Continuing our exploration, we encounter the significance of Jesus' blood as the blood of the new covenant. In Matthew 26:28, Jesus Himself states that His blood symbolizes the establishment of a new covenant, one that brings forgiveness, reconciliation, and eternal life.
