Isaiah the prophet had included the idea in his writings about the Messiah. Christ, he said, would be like a lamb led to slaughter. John the Baptizer had proclaimed it down at the river: “Behold the Lamb of God, who comes to take away the sins of the world.” (John 1:29)
Peter called Jesus “the Lamb” in his first letter, and Paul called Jesus the ultimate Passover lamb. In Revelation, John refers to Jesus as the Lamb 28 times.
Our main scripture passage Sunday morning is a short one. It’s from Paul’s letter to the Corinthians, and the passage, in its context, has nothing to do with Easter. He is in the middle of writing a word of correction to his church in Corinth, But in that word of correction, he says this: “For Christ, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed” (1 Corinthians 5:7).
Paul made such an assumption that we would have a clear understanding of the lambs of Passover, he didn’t even explain it. He just said it in passing: “Jesus was our Passover Lamb … and he’s been sacrificed.” If we wrote a letter to Paul, he would have to dig to understand our world – So we have to dig to understand His.
Now, the Lamb of God sits at the right hand of God the Father. Jesus is powerful, majestic, and completely worthy of worship. The song of heaven is this, according to Revelation 5:13: “To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb be praise and honor and glory and power, for ever and ever!”
