Catholic Answers staff apologist Jim Blackburn explains why receiving the blood of Jesus in the mass does not violate the Old Testament prohibition on consuming blood.
Jim Blackburn is a Catholic Answers staff apologist. A cradle Catholic born and raised in southern Illinois, he is a graduate of Southern Illinois University. He had studied Catholicism and other faiths for many years as an amateur apologist before going on the 2003 Catholic Answers apologetics cruise. After the cruise, he felt called to leave his career of nearly 20 years in the mortgage industry and to become a full-time apologist.
In addition to supervising the Q&A department at Catholic Answers, Jim also is a regular contributor to This Rock magazine and he appears regularly as a guest on the Catholic Answers LIVE radio program.
