18 knowing that you were redeemed, not with corruptible things, with silver or gold, from the useless way of life handed down from your fathers, 19 but with precious blood, as of a faultless and pure lamb, the blood of Christ.
Here we see that (on the heaven) blood of Christ is an instrument of payment, just like as silver and gold are instruments of payment on the Earth.
For something to be used as an instrument of payment, it needs to be precious just like gold, and in this Bible fragment we see that blood of Christ is precious.
By the way in modern Hebrew the word “damim” may be translated both as blood and payments. Coincidence?
