Which Is Better?

By faith Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts: and by it he being dead yet speaketh. – Hebrews 11:4

Why was Abel’s offering better than Cain’s?  I had been taught that it was because Abel offered his best,  and Cain didn’t.

That might be true, but the real reason is because only an offering that contains blood is acceptable.  Only blood offerings, those of animals, were acceptable to atone for sin, which is why only Jesus, the Lamb of God, was slain once and for all to take away the sin of the world.
