Jesus: The Lamb of God
July 5, 2013 • John 1:19-42 & Revelation 5
One of the truly great, illuminating images for Jesus Christ in the New Testament is the Lamb of God. This word picture points not so much to his character, or nature, or personality, but rather to the primary purpose for which he came. He is the true sacrifice, provided by God himself, once offered on the cross for the sin of the world.
