Where Did Jesus Get The Blood?

Q. In Why Couldn’t Mary Hold Him you said Jesus carried His own blood into the Temple in Heaven. Where did Jesus get the blood? Since after the resurrection, the glorified body of Jesus is ‘Flesh and Bones’? And he said unto them, “Why are you troubled? and why do thoughts arise in your hearts? Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit has not flesh and bones, as you see me have.” And when he had thus spoken, he showed them his hands and his feet. (Luke 24:38-40)

A. He shed His blood on the cross and that’s the blood He carried to the temple. The blood of a sacrificial animal is shed in the act of being sacrificed. It’s not produced after its death. Besides, you can’t use Luke 24:38-40 to prove the resurrected Jesus has no blood. In the passage it’s clear He was giving them indicators they could see or feel. We can see or feel a person’s flesh and bones, but we can’t see or feel their blood.

And finally, Lev. 17:14 and Deut. 12:23 both tell us that our life is in our blood. This would indicate that for Jesus to have life He would need to have blood.
