Do a Bible search on:
   drink NEAR blood

You will get two matches:

  • John 6:53
  • 1 Corinthians 11:25

Sometimes I find that NEAR doesn't catch as much as WITHIN. I tried 

drink WITHIN 8 words blood

And in the NT it also found:

John 6:55 ("My blood is true drink")

Rev 16:6 (which is not Jesus saying it)

Doesn't something seem to be missing in that list? Like the Synoptic versions of the Last Supper...?Wink

I used eat AND (body,blood).

Essentially there's two places: the Last Supper story, in all its parallels, and John 6.

Note: a) you need Match All Word Forms checked. b) you need to use AND; NEAR will miss Mark.
