Jesus’ Precious Blood

The blood of Jesus is completely unique, in that no blood from Adam’s stain of sin was mixed with His.  The design of God’s creation even disallowed the blood of a mother to mix with the blood of the baby (as evidenced in the placenta on the uterine wall, without mixture).

Completely rare.  Completely unique, one-of-a-kind.  Completely precious.

19   But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:  (KJV)
