  • “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.
