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?
OPEN: About a year ago I received this e-mail:
In 2003, Mel Gibson released a film called The Passion which dramatically and bloodily captured much of the trial and crucifixion of Christ. Because of it’s graphicness, it was rated "R".
The "R", of course, is because of the violence, the gore.
