I think MacArthur’s point is that, even in the Old Testament economy, the sacrifice had to die, not merely bleed. Apart from His dying, we would not be saved, no matter how much He bled. Luke 9:22 says, The Son of Man must suffer many things, and be rejected by the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised the third day. Jesus had not only to bleed, but to die and rise for our salvation to be complete.
Indeed the blood, death, burial, and resurrection all are critical in the plan of salvation. No argument there. However, it was not just any death (like in poison). It was a death that had to involve blood – a blood sacrifice. So to say that Jesus’ Blood has nothing to do with salvation is misleading.
Living he Loved Me Dying he saved me Buried He carried my My sins far away Rising he justified me Freed me forever One day he’s coming back Glorious day
What about that healing coming from Jesus vs healing being a gift from the Holy Spirit?
The Holy Spirit applies what the Son provides in the atonement.
