Lamb of God

Additional Links

A title applied to Our Lord by Saint John the Baptist (John 1,29,36). He Isaiah 29 times called "the Lamb" in the Apocalypse. The title suggests the idea of a victim offered for sins; it probably goes back to Isaias, 53,7, where the Servant of the Lord, i.e.,the Messias, is spoken of as "led as a sheep to the slaughter and dumb as a lamb before His shearer." In 1Corinthians 5:7,1 Peter 1:19, however, Our Lord is called a "lamb", with reference to the paschal lamb; Saint John also regards the paschal lamb as symbolic of Christ, a victim for sin.
