  • “For the life of the flesh is in the blood” (Lev. 17:11). Without blood there cannot be life in the physical body. This is also true in the Bible. Blood flows through the Bible just as it does through the veins of our body. The late W. A. Criswell authored many books, one of which was titled, The Scarlet Thread. He shows how the thread that ran from Genesis to Revelation was the blood of Jesus.

  • Home-canned tomato products separate because of a natural enzyme action. There is an enzyme in raw tomatoes that acts to break down the pectin that holds tomato cells together. As soon as tomatoes are chopped or crushed and the enzyme is exposed to air, it starts to work breaking down the pectin. This causes the solids and liquids in the finished product to separate.
