WELCOME! When God made His covenant with Israel through Moses, it was confirmed by the shedding of innocent blood. Moses took half of the sacrificial blood and threw it on the altar, thereby making atonement for the sins of the people. And half the blood he threw on the people, declaring, "Behold, the blood of the covenant that the Lord has made with you in accordance with all these words" (Exodus 24:8). This was followed by a covenant meal, in which Moses and Aaron along with Aaron’s sons and seventy elders of Israel ate and drank in God’s presence on the mountain. In Christ’s death, He has established a new and greater covenant. As He is crucified, His blood atones for the sins of all people. And as Moses and the elders of Israel beheld God and ate and drank, so also do we behold God and eat and drink in His presence when we receive the covenant meal of His body and blood. "Drink of it all of you, for this is My blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins" (Matthew 26:27).
