Behold the Lamb of God - John 1:29
Looking at a man, in appearance like any other standing there, John points to him and says, “Behold, the Lamb of God, come to take away the sin of the world.” I can only imagine the absolutely silence as this radically iconoclastic statement slammed into the crowd. A lamb in the form of a man? Human sacrifice was simply not practiced. He was a lamb provided by God himself? And even if the sacrifice is legit, it takes away the sin of more than just the Israelite people?
Jesus, consistently, completely, and often controversially, shatters our known world only to stoop down and reform the pieces into something of infinite, reflective beauty.
Listen to 3 stories of God preparing his people, preparing them through the use of reflective symbols, helping them to see that one day, they themselves.... we.... would be all about reflecting him!
