Leviticus 6:1 – As we tour throughout the legal code of Israel, we are entering Contract Law. If someone makes an agreement, but then reneges on it, it is a sin against his fellow man, but also against the LORD (see Leviticus 6:6). Sin affects man and God.

Leviticus 7:26 – This command about not consuming blood is found in Genesis 9:4, Leviticus 3:17, Leviticus 17:10-12, 14, 19:26, Deuteronomy 12:16, 23, 25; 15:23, Ezekiel 33:25, Acts 15:20, 29, 21:25… so by the time Jesus says in John 6:53-56 that we are to drink His blood, the people are confused.
