Abstract

The key passage in the New Testament in which Christ is called "Lamb of God" is John 1:29. Here we are told that John the Baptist sees Jesus approaching him and then calls attention to Him by means of this designation. Exactly what does this term mean? This study attempts to take a careful look at John 1:29 and other passages of the New Testament which refer to our Lord as "Lamb" in an effort to determine its meaning.
