The young of the sheep, and also the kid of the goat, Exodus 12:5 , Christ is the Lamb of God, John 1:29 , as being the accepted sacrifice for human sin. The sacrifices of the Old Testament were an ordained and perpetual foreshadowing not only of his spotless holiness and his unresisting meekness, Isaiah 53:4-9 . He is described in Revelation 5:6 12:11 , as wearing the form of a sacrificial lamb in heaven itself. See PASSOVER and SACRIFICES.
