Discussion Questions:
Old Testament

  • Exodus 24:8 refers to the “blood of the covenant.” Is this the same blood and same covenant referred to by Christ in Matthew 26:28?
  • What was the purpose of the blood sacrifices in Exodus 29? Why don’t Jews or Christians still sacrifice animals on an altar?

New Testament

  • Why does Christ refer to wine as “my blood of the new testament?” Matthew 26:28.
  • Why did Judas kiss Jesus when he betrayed him? Matthew 26:48-49.
