3 Bible Tips: The Lamb of God

The symbol of a lamb representing Jesus Christ, who willingly gave His life to save us, occurs many times in the Bible. We covered one in the study on the Passover. Here are three more.

1. Abraham and Isaac were asked to foreshadow the Father's and Jesus Christ's incredible sacrifice. Thankfully, God provided a sacrifice in place of Isaac (and all of us).

"And Abraham said, 'My son, God will provide for Himself the lamb for a burnt offering.' So the two of them went together...

"And [a voice from heaven] said, 'Do not lay your hand on the lad, or do anything to him; for now I know that you fear God, since you have not withheld your son, your only son, from Me.' Then Abraham lifted his eyes and looked, and there behind him was a ram caught in a thicket by its horns. So Abraham went and took the ram, and offered it up for a burnt offering instead of his son" (Genesis 22:8, 12-13; read the whole story in Genesis 22:1-18).

2. The Lamb of God makes possible the forgiveness of sins (violations of God's law that earn all of us the death penalty).

"The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, 'Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!'" (John 1:29).

3. The Lamb of God will also lead and lovingly care for the sheep, the followers of Jesus Christ.

"They shall neither hunger anymore nor thirst anymore; the sun shall not strike them, nor any heat; for the Lamb who is in the midst of the throne will shepherd them and lead them to living fountains of waters. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes'" (Revelation 7:16-17).

For more about Jesus Christ's awesome sacrifice and future role, see "Jesus Christ, the Supreme Servant."
