The first Christians abstain from blood. Blood from animals and humans. Tertullian (a writer about beliefs of early Christians) stated: “The interdict upon ‘blood’ we shall understand to be (an interdict) much more upon human blood.”—The Ante-Nicene Fathers, Vol. IV, p. 86.

Keep abstaining from blood: what does it mean?

Consider somebody who is told by a doctor that he must abstain from alcohol. What do you think? If the patient would stop drinking alcohol but had it put directly into his veins, would he be obedient to what the doctor said?

When a patient in a hospital cannot eat through his mouth, he can be fed intravenously. If a person would not eat blood and don't drink it, but would accept a blood transfusion, would he really obey the Bible commands to "keep abstaining from… Blood"? (The Bible, Acts 15:29).
