“Behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!” (John 1:29) That was John the Baptist’s powerful witness to Jesus at the Jordan River when the Savior came to be baptized by him. The image of a lamb is used frequently in both the Old and New Testaments to describe the Messiah as well as the sinful people He came to save.

We will examine and meditate on some of these Biblical pictures of …..

Please come to these special Lenten services. I wrote them in the prayerful hope that this extra time for meditation and devotion will prove to be a rich blessing on all of us. As the hymn says, “Jesus, I will ponder now, on Thy holy passion.” Only by focusing on the cross can the joy of Easter be fully realized and appreciated.
