Behold, the Lamb of God

Passage:John 1:29-42

Preacher: Ben Phillips

This incredible statement about Jesus, said by John the Baptist, describes Jesus as the Lamb of God, an image or symbol for Christ which is nearly universal. But where does such an idea come from, and what does it mean? Today we'll explore the Old Testament background to this title for Jesus, and how understanding what John was saying means that we have to face Jesus ultimately not just as sage, or philosopher, or itinerant moral preacher, but as a savior who takes away our sin.
