      Lamb of God

      So, what does it mean to you that Jesus is called the Lamb of God?

      this is an interesting article about this very question

      https://www.biblestudytools.com/bibl...mb-of-god.html

      "To connect the dots for this question, we will want to take a look back into history and context of the Old Testament. Animal sacrifices are found all throughout books in the Old Testament. These blood offerings acted as a temporary covering for sin. In Leviticus 4:35, you get a clear picture of the process and the purpose. “..Through this process, the priest will purify the people from their sin, making them right with the Lord, and they will be forgiven.” (NLT, emphasis mine)

      So the purpose of animal sacrifice and offerings was sanctification, righteousness (or right standing with God), and forgiveness. Hebrews 9:22 also sheds some light on the importance of the blood offering, saying, “In fact, according to the law of Moses, nearly everything was purified with blood. For without the shedding of blood, there is no forgiveness.” In summary, this was life under the law: the people knew if sin was present, a sacrifice was necessary for redemption.

      These various sacrificial practices in Jewish culture often involved lambs; this animal had a very important place in the religion. Lambs are known for their white coats, and white is a symbol of purity and cleanliness.

      Can you begin to see how why Jesus was called the Lamb of God? He, too, was stainless, perfect and free of sin. He was perfectly pure. And just like the lambs were sacrificed for sin, so would Christ be sacrificed."

      Jesus was also the Passover lamb of the Tenth Plague of Egypt. When the blood of the lamb was applied to the doorpost it marked those within as the people of God and the angel of death passed over them with the judgement of God against the Firstborn of Egypt. So too with Jesus Christ, the Lamb of God, when his Blood is applied to the doorposts of our heart, God will pass over our sinful selves with his terrible judgement. It is as John 3:18 says ... [John 3:18 NASB] 18 "He who believes in Him is not judged; he who does not believe has been judged already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.”

      } The scepter shall not depart from Judah, nor the student of the torah(law) from between his feet, until Shiloh comes, and to him will be a gathering of peoples.

      } And in the fourth year, all its fruit shall be holy, a praise to the Lord.

      } “Hear, Lord, the cry of Judah;
      bring him to his people.
      With his own hands he defends his cause.
      Oh, be his help against his foes!”


      } Blessings for God’s People
      17 “Then you will know that I, the Lord your God,
      dwell in Zion, my holy hill.
      Jerusalem will be holy;
      never again will foreigners invade her.

      18 “In that day the mountains will drip new[sweet-wine,
      and the hills will flow with milk;
      all the ravines of Judah will run with water.
      A fountain will flow out of the Lord’s house
      and will water the valley of acacias.
      [d]

      19 But Egypt will be desolate,
      Edom a desert waste,
      because of violence done to the people of Judah,
      in whose land they shed innocent blood.

      20 Judah will be inhabited forever
      and Jerusalem through all generations.
      21 Shall I leave their innocent blood unavenged?
      No, I will not.”

      The Lord dwells in Zion!



      Blessings Always
