Topic: Baptism Passage: Colossians 2:9–2:15
It seems unusual (and a little unsettling) to talk about blood in the context of baptism, but there is a connection. In the Old Testament, the covenant between God and his people were sealed with circumcision--a blood-letting and a sacrifice, in a manner of speaking. The death of Jesus Christ on the cross was also a blood-letting and a sacrifice; indeed, it was the perfect blood-letting and sacrifice, once for all. In baptism, we share in Christ's sacrifice, and a new covenant is made between us and God.
