WHY THE BLOOD OF CHRIST IS NECESSARY FOR SALVATION
Jesse M. Hendley
Now, friends, turn with me to the Book of Exodus, chapter
29, verse 16, and today we are taking up the most precious
study in the Bible, MORE IMPORTANT than any other study in
the Bible, and that is the truth of THE BLOOD.
There is absolutely no place of comfort but in the Blood of
