SPECIAL TOPIC: POURED OUT (NT)

The general term cheō means "to pour."  The intensified form, ekcheō, has two developed connotations.

1. innocent blood shed, Matt. 23:35; Acts 22:20

2. a sacrifice given, Matt. 26:28; Mark 14:24; Luke 22:20

In Jesus these two senses meet at Calvary (cf. Colin Brown, ed., The New International Dictionary of New Testament Theology vol. 2, pp. 853-855).
