I have heard many a preacher say that Christ blood was spilled at the cross. This is not so! The Greek is more precise, and so should we be if we want to communicate God's purpose and redemptive plan. The Bible NEVER says Christ spilled his blood on Calvary. It ALWAYS uses the word "shed".
"And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is my body. And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it; For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins."
Matthew 26: 26-28
