Last week we looked at the baptism of Jesus and saw how God uses people, sinful people, as the vessels and participants in God’s plan of salvation. Immediately following this moment, John returns to his position of prophet. He is the one who proclaims to the entire world that Jesus is the Messiah. The Lamb of God is the one promised to Abraham when Isaac was spared. The Lamb of God is the one sacrificed so that blood will allow the angel of death to Passover the Israelites. The Lamb of God is Jesus, who fulfills all prophecy.
Scripture: John 1:29-42
