Applying the Blood
The stock image “Applying the Blood” depicts an Old Testament scene in which a lamb is being sacrificed and its blood is being applied to the doorposts of a house.
The image refers to the Jewish ritual of the Passover, in which a lamb was sacrificed and its blood was used to mark the doors of the Israelites’ houses in order to protect them from the angel of death.
The image shows a priest or a family member using a brush to apply the blood to the doorposts. It is a powerful reminder of the importance of sacrifice and atonement in the Jewish faith, and it also has significant symbolic meaning in Christianity, where it is seen as a foreshadowing of the sacrifice of Jesus Christ, whose blood is believed to have atoned for the sins of humanity.
