In the passage, the Blood of Jesus was shed by a Roman spear... but neither John nor any other part of Scripture makes note of the importance of Christ’s blood in this story. Is there a message in the blood that flowed from Jesus side?

In Oklahoma, someone saw this poster promoting a Red Cross blood drive:
"I gave my blood.
Christ gave his.
I give a pint.
He gave all.
The needle is small, sharp.
The nails were large, dull.
The table soft, restful.
The cross rough, painful.
