James Goll started the session by pointing out that the blood of Jesus was shed seven distinct times.

 And being in anguish, he prayed more earnestly, and his sweat was like drops of blood falling to the ground. Luke 22:44 NIV

This was in the Garden of Gethsemane. The first time Jesus shed his blood was in prayer. He was praying fervently, His capillaries burst and His sweat became like drops of blood falling on the ground.

Then they spit in his face and struck him with their fists. Others slapped him Matthew 26:67 NIV

Jesus was struck with fists. This is the second time His blood was shed. James pointed out Micah 5:1 for a prophetic reference and also mentioned that Jesus was struck with rods.

The Sovereign Lord has opened my ears; I have not been rebellious, I have not turned away. I offered my back to those who beat me, my cheeks to those who pulled out my beard; I did not hide my face from mocking and spitting. Isaiah 50:5–6 NIV

Isaiah says that they took hold of chunks of his beard, and they pulled it out. That would shed blood. This is the third instance of His blood being shed.

Then he released Barabbas to them. But he had Jesus flogged, and handed him over to be crucified. Mathew 27:26 NIV

In this verse, Jesus was not crucified yet, and his blood was shed when he was flogged. This was the fourth instance of His blood being shed.

 And then twisted together a crown of thorns and set it on his head. They put a staff in his right hand. Then they knelt in front of him and mocked him. “Hail, king of the Jews!” they said. Mathew 27:29 NIV

The crown of thorns produced blood. That was the fifth instance of His blood being shed.

This was prophesied in Isaiah 52:13–14:

See, my servant will act wisely: he will be raised and lifted up and highly exalted.
Just as there were many who were appalled at him—his appearance was so disfigured beyond that of any human being and his form marred beyond human likeness.

The sixth instance when His blood was shed was when His hands and feet were pierced with the nails (Mathew 27).

And the seventh time His blood was shed was when the soldier pierced His side.

But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and forthwith came there out blood and water. John 19:34 KJV
