Christian Symbols

The Lamb

This symbolic "Lamb of God" is often known by its Latin name Angus Dei. John 1:29 records that upon seeing Jesus coming toward him, John the Baptist exclaimed: "Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sins of the world". The lamb, pure and faultless, was used as the preferred sacrifice in the Old Testament. Only Jesus, however, could ever truly be the "perfect sacrifice" for the sins of mankind.
