“The Lamb of God”

Key Verse

  “The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world” (John 1:29).

Text — John 1:29-34


Christians refer to Jesus as the “Lamb of God.” However, this title is significant to our faith. In our text, John the Baptist declared Jesus as the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world.

John the Baptist’s declaration that Jesus is the Lamb of God is significant for several reasons. Firstly, the title “Lamb of God” dates back to the Old Testament sacrificial system, where a lamb was offered as a sacrifice for the sins of the people. By calling Jesus the Lamb of God, John is identifying Him as the ultimate sacrifice for sin through His death on the cross. Secondly, John’s proclamation highlights Jesus’ role as the the long awaited Messiah. The Messiah was expected to come and save God’s people from their sins. Moreover, John the Baptist’s testimony also reminds us that Jesus was not an ordinary man, but the Son of God. John saw the Spirit of God descend and remain on Jesus, confirming that He was indeed the Messiah. Surrender your life to Him and declare Him to others as the Lamb of God.


Surrender your life to Him


Jesus is the only acceptable Sacrifice for sin.
