Lamb of God


Behold, the Lamb of God

"Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world” (John 1:29).

John the Baptist is baptizing at the Jordan, but we understand from this account in the fourth Gospel that he is also there to identify the Messiah when he comes. As Jesus approaches him, John cries out, “There is the Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world!”
