Interesting post Francios
If you ate the blood, you were eating the portion that was reserved for the diety. How tribal.
I thought Scripture was simply saying that the life is in the blood, and to pour the blood out meant not to eat the animal while it was still alive as some had the custom to do. I wouldnt interpret the Scriptural meaning to be that God wants the blood saving for him. Just that he requested that the animal was drained of any life before being eaten.
Interesting, I'll have to look into it again
