Anonymous asked:Jesus demanding that followers partake of actual, literal blood would go against Levitical law. The new covenant (that is redemption through Christ's death rather than adherence to law) does not take effect until after His death. The words he speaks in John 6 are spirit. There is a deeper meaning. His statement coincides with the feeding of the 5000 people. Let's also remember that Jesus said he was the vine and also light. This does not mean we was a plant or made up of photons.

Then Jesus went with them to a place called Gethsemane, and he said to his disciples, “Sit here, while I go yonder and pray.” And taking with him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, he began to be sorrowful and troubled. Then he said to them, “My soul is very sorrowful, even to death; remain here, and watch with me.” And going a little farther he fell on his face and prayed, “My Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as thou wilt.” – Mt 26:36-39
