Parshat Acharei Mos
in 17:10-14, we have a span of 5 psukim in which the Torah tells us 5 times not to eat blood and another 3 times that someone who does eat blood will be cut off from Israel.
Isn't that a bit much? Why the need to repeat it so much? Especially considering the general revulsion people have to eating blood - almost nobody eats blood, so why repeat it so much?
Maybe because the severity of eating blood is so high because of its relation to the soul - כי הדם הוא הנפש.
Anybody have a good explanation?
