That would be a big deal, if true. In any case, it seems that simply drinking blood confers benefits on its own.tupperaware said:The Methuselah crowd in the old testament might have been AB+ and had the ability to transfuse blood from donor to patient using ground hollow fish bones and some kind of tubing made from mouse intestines.
“Blood was a medium between the physical and spiritual,” explains Richard Sugg at the University of Durham, who recently wrote a book on “corpse medicine” and who is currently writing a volume on vampirism. By drinking the blood of a healthy young man, he says, you were imbibing his spirit and curing whatever afflicted your soul.—The People Who Drink Human Blood
The blood, powdered or dessicated, was mixed into the dough of the unleavened or “solemn” bread, the shimmurim — not ordinary bread. The shimmurim — in fact, three loaves for each of the two evenings during which the ritual dinner of the Seder was served — were considered one of the principal symbolic foods of the feast, and their accurate preparation and baking took place during the days preceding the advent of Pesach (Passover).
“The evening before Pesach, when they stir the dough with which the unleavened bread (the shimmurim) is later prepared, the head of the family takes the blood of a Christian child and mixes it into the dough while it is being kneaded, using the entire quantity available, keeping in mind that the measure of a lentil is sufficient. The head of the family sometimes performs this operation in the presence of those kneading the unleavened bread, and sometimes without their knowledge, based on whether or not they can be trusted.”
“Eating unleavened bread with Christian blood in it means that, just as the body and powers of Jesus Christ, the God of the Christians, went down to perdition (eternal damnation) with His death, thus, the Christian blood contained in the unleavened bread shall be ingested and completely consumed”. —Blood Passover by Ariel Toaff (worthy of note, the author is Jewish)
Could this be the real Communion? Imbibing a spirit in the form of bloodwine and blood-soaked bread? What about eating "Haman's ears" Purim bread, in celebration of the butchery of 75,000 Persians?
