We are so accustomed to bar code pricing or the posting of the cost on the shelf below the item that we forget in the past, store-owners tagged each article separately. It was much easier for the consumer, requiring only a casual glance. The new method is more efficient for the sellers because it saves a great deal of time and there can be no switching of price tags.
Jesus paid full price. The cost was high. “not with perishable things, like silver or gold, but with the precious blood of Christ, like that of a lamb without defect or blemish (1 Peter 1:18b-19 HCS).” He did not quibble about the price. “You are not your own, for you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body (1 Corinthians 6:19b-20 HCS).”
