Traditionally, in both Eucharistic and non-Eucharistic interpretations of Jesus' call to drink his blood, "ingestion" means "belief." Thus, "drinking blood" means believing in Jesus' cross-work. Those Jews in John 6 who, out of respect for Mosaic Law "stumble" at such drinking have manifestly failed to perceive of new Christian realities. Such an analysis raises questions however. Accruing salvation by "drinking" Jesus blood, even metaphorically, may demonstrate the efficacy of such drinking, but not its legitimacy - not in light of the Mosaic blood prohibition. How then is faith in Jesus legitimately established by "drinking" blood? This study attempts to explain John's assertion of the need to drink Jesus' Blood, and to derive a rationale for faith from these words, by demonstrating how drinking blood has become legitimate for his readers in light of the prohibition.
