Chapter Summary

In various passages in the New Testament the "Blood of Christ" is spoken of in a highly characteristic manner. These passages show that a decisive significance was attributed to it in man's relationship with God. The text of 1 Peter i 18-19 must also be mentioned in this connection; indeed, it is of eminent importance, as one can see from various quotations. These quotations show that we are dealing with a doctrinal point fundamental to all the reformed religions, a point for which I Peter i I8-I9 is the proof-text. Largely because of its use in the catechisms which, taught at school and preached from the pulpits, had such a profound influence, this passage and its interpretation have become common property. The far-reaching effects of a current like Pietism are mentioned in association with the importance of this text for Christian doctrine.

Keywords: catechisms; Jesus Christ; New Testament; Pietism; text of 1 Peter
