Jesus blood type

Jesus' Blood type and what it may possibly signify

How could we possibly know that Jesus blood type is AB positive?
However true it may be that we cannot know Jesus blood type for absolute certainty, it seems that God has been pleased to give us a very large body of evidence which overwhelmingly shows Jesus blood type as being AB positive—evidences such as the Shroud of Turin, the Sudarium of Oveido, along with quite a few important Eucharistic miracles, both historical and also very recent, whose blood test results have all consistently confirmed the AB positive thesis. In fact, recent scientific blood analysis has confirmed once again the AB blood type in both the Shroud and the Sudarium--two sacred relics which are believed to have physically touched the body of Jesus, and contain His precious blood.

Presented below are just a few of the many cases which having been scientifically tested by laboratories in different areas of the world, all of which reveal the AB blood type: 
- The Corporal of Bolsena  (13th century, blood tested in 1995)

And for those who are interested in more recent events, the three below have occurred in just the last 25 years and the blood results were all type AB positive:
- The (desecrated) Eucharistic host at Buenos Aires,Argentina  (1996) – An interesting side note about this miracle is that the Archbishop who commissioned the investigation was Archbishop Bergoglio --now Pope Francis!

Each of the links above confirm the AB blood type test result, and as of this writing there is well over a dozen miracles/events which all have resulted in this same conclusion.

Rarity of the AB blood type among the human population
Together the AB blood type (both positive and negative) is one of the rarest of the human blood types, with only approximately 3.4 percent of the world population having AB+, and only 0.6 percent of the population with AB-.  

AB blood type and its universal receptivity
What makes the AB blood type even more special is that people who have AB blood can receive blood from anyone, and are therefore known as “universal recipients”, unlike all other blood types who can only receive from other specific blood types. Therefore AB blood type is referred to as the "Universal Receiver" blood type.

So what to make of the universal receptivity of Jesus blood type?
So this begs the question--why would Jesus’ blood be universally receptive by all the blood types of humanity? What could this signify? Well, this is where Science and Faith may very well merge.

In the Eucharist, we often speak of “receiving” Jesus in Holy Communion.  When we consume the Eucharist, Jesus literally unites and becomes one with us, Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity.

Eucharistic "Koinonia"
However, from Its beginning the Church has always taught that Eucharistic communion flows in two directions, Jesus uniting with us, and we joining together in Communion with Him--for when we receive Communion, it’s actually less about Jesus becoming part of us, than it is of we becoming ever more part of Him – and, by extension, ever more part of his Body, the Church. 

The ancient Greek word the Church uses for this is “Koinonia” which essentially means that the Eucharist is the sacrament of communion with one another, in the one Body of Christ.

“Is not the cup of thanksgiving for which we give thanks a participation in the blood of Christ?"(1 Corinthians 10:16)
And so it is that St. Paul tells us in 1 Cor 10:16 that we simply don’t receive Jesus in the Eucharist, but that together we join Him in Communion in the blood of Christ—“Nonne communicatio sanguinis?” as it is written in the Latin Vulgate; κοινωνία or Koinonia in Greek.

Likewise St. Thomas Aquinas writes:  “…the Eucharist is the sacrament of the unity of the Church, which results from the fact that many are one in Christ”, or as the Catechism states  “ this sacrament we unite ourselves to Christ, who makes us sharers in his Body and Blood to form a single body.” (Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1331).

With this in mind we can now better perceive one of the reasons why Jesus perhaps chose to possess blood type AB: for being that it is the universally receptive blood type, our blood, regardless of our own blood type, can be received by Him, so that no sinner is excluded from being taken up into His divine life! And so it is that by reflecting upon the the possibility of Jesus and the AB blood type we have a beautifully symbolic representation that points to the mystery of Holy Communion  and union with, and in, His most precious Body and Blood!  

AB+ is also the universal plasma donor blood type
But this is not all---for not only is AB blood the universally receptive blood type, but AB+ blood is also known for being the universal plasma donor blood type, meaning that AB+ plasma can be transfused into any person, regardless of their blood type.  

So, what would a blood plasma transplant provide, and why would a patient need one? Plasma attacks molecules called antibodies to help fight infections and it carries the clotting factors that stave off deadly hemorrhaging. In other words, plasma fights infections and it also helps to stop bleeding.  

With this in mind, what spiritual allegories and symbolic conclusions can we derive from contemplating this last bit of information? Well, in this final matter I will leave it to the reader to reflect and make one’s own spiritual speculations and conclusions, and I will conclude this article in the joy of knowing that Jesus precious Blood is an inexhaustible font of salvation for humanity, and through receiving His precious Body and Blood in Communion we together unite in His divine life.

Please...are not Holy Tradition and the Gospels not enough? The Lord's blood type? Pray and act in charity more. Speculate less.

Father Khouri,

(If you really are a priest) I take it you do not believe or doubt the Eucharistic miracles. Do you not think that all the samples of the blood taken and tested by reputable organisation such as Universities at different locations throughout the world all testing AB+ blood type along with the tissue analysed and found to be from the heart is more than coincidence. Or do you think it is a world wide conspiracy organised by the church You say "Pray and act in charity" do you think you have?
Agreed we do not have to believe such things being not the deposit of faith, but I cannot help but think no wonder we have a problem with our clergy.

Universal recipient blood: any of us can shed our blood for Him, and He will accept it. But for us to receive His, we must be conformed to him; otherwise It will be deadly to us.

Fr Khouri.
These understandings deepen my Faith Belief for one;
- in the Holy Traditions, that Jesus still reveals Himself after His death on the Cross, from St Paul's conversion up until today, as in the Eucharist miracles. It strengthen the faith of the faithful believers.
- it helps explain in a deeper way Jesus' precious Blood, which is also shedded for You.

I wonder how aligned and possible itd be to match descendents present in todays world.would they know and support the science and spirit?

Dear readers
I have an addition to this subject that it is even more interesting.
Ron Wyatt supposedly found the Ark of the Covenant under the Golgotha and Dome of the Rock underground gallery area in Jerusalém (Jeremiah grotto). He was able to collect a sample of dried blood spilled over that object and handed it to a special Israeli Lab that managed to 'revive' the blood and got its karyotype using dividing Leukocytes (white blood cells) in mitosis. The result is amazing: that blood has 22 somatic chromosomes, plus a pair of sexual ones: X + Y. People usually have 44 somatic (22 from the father + 22 from the mother) and the pair of sexual chromosomes. That means that the owner of that blood had 23 chromosomes (including the X) from the mother and ONLY the Y from the 'father'!!!!!!
Here is a collection of Ron's talks on the subject... I'm amazed how this subject never went viral:
He has already passed away, so this is his Family website:

Thanks Bizlep for the interesting info that you provided.

Hilatious. My apouse and i spoke of such things in exactnesss today bizlep. Thanks for.

We have that free will to search for answers. God would approve of this because we are searching for the truth. Man kind can never be trusted because it has been proven the catholic church misinterpeted the scrolls to begin with. The day of rest is saturday not sunday. There is no trinity god is one jesus is one. That is what jesus meant when he says we are one when describing his father. He did not mean that himself and jesus are combined into one. Even the poor put together bible that has books missing from it still clearly seperates the two beings as two different beings not one. Trinity is a lie walk away from the trinity and back to the one true God.

There are some errors here. The universal recipient is O negative. The universal donor is AB negative. No one with positive RH can receive negative blood. So...while it is a nice idea that Our Lord's blood type is AB+ so that everyone can receive without a problem, it would not be accurate. RH factor can cause great problems of rejection for RH negative. I think that the priest who commented is right. We can get to analytical here. More faith, less analysis.

Glenn Dallaire said...

Thanks for your comments. Everything stated in this article concerning blood types is correct, and unfortunately much of what you stated concerning blood types is incorrect.
1) Firstly, your statement that "The universal recipient is O negative" is completely incorrect. In fact, the truth is almost the exact opposite of what you said--O Negatives can ONLY receive from other O negatives, so they are definitely are very far from being "Universal Recipients" as you stated.

2) You stated "The universal donor is AB negative". What is incorrect in your statement is that the universal blood donor is Type O negative blood (not AB!) while the universal plasma donor is Type AB blood.

Again, all of what was stated in the article concerning blood types is correct.

Hi Virginie,

I have to respectfully disagree with you. The universal recipient is blood type AB while the universal donor is blood type O. I remember this well from my science class in high school because I also have blood type AB and was happy to hear that I am a universal recipient.

If you want more evidence, below are some websites that you can consult.

I hope this helps.

Thank you so much for your extremely clear writing on this! I've been trying to express it for a number of years but failed, leaving people scratching their heads. I hadn't even realized the significance originally because I was just in awe that our Lord and Savior had left tangible, physical traces of Himself for doubting Thomases to discover. Initially my only thought was that it was amazing that the Eucharistic miracles around the world, along with the Shroud of Turin and so on, were all tied together with the same blood type. It was my son, a non-believer, who said, "How interesting that the Savior of all Mankind is a universal receiver, not a universal donor." That opened my eyes and understanding of koinonia. Of course, in my son's thinking, it's "rude" of Jesus to be a universal receiver, but that's from the typical atheist/agnostic demand on God to conform to their rules for Him. It's typical for such people to require God to welcome everyone in their sin - to live their sin and keep their sinful ways and still receive a seat at the banquet. It's immaturity. For my son and for all such as these, please pray with me:

O Blood and Water which gushed forth from the Heart of Jesus as a fount of mercy for us, I trust in You.
O Blood and Water which gushed forth from the Heart of Jesus as a fount of mercy for us, I trust in You.
O Blood and Water which gushed forth from the Heart of Jesus as a fount of mercy for us, I trust in You.
Jesus, I trust in You.
Jesus, I trust in You.
Jesus, King of Mercy, I trust in You.

It makes perfect sense to me that the Blood of Jesus is the rarest - for he was a rare man - not a common one. Why would his Blood be common?

My blood is AB+. I am humbled and honored by this information. I had no prior knowledge of His blood type until this article. I must admit I am a bit shaken right now. I will pray and seek the answer and meaning as to why I am Blessed with the same blood type.

Unknown said...

It’s. Actually. O negative Rh negative blood type. Can donate blood to every race everyone on earth. Not a positive. I would die if I got a positive blood type

Glenn Dallaire said...

Yes, O Negative is the universal DONOR blood type, whereas AB positive is the universal RECIPIENT blood type, just as the article states. In fact, everything stated in the article is correct.
