Very often in our everyday life we, consciously or unconsciously, use ideas and expressions which are biblical, but do we know the meaning and significance of these invaluable words? Aren’t we using them inappropriately, out of place? The show “Reflections” touches upon these issues.
In our everyday life, this biblical expression is used with the meaning of “gentle, peaceful, decorous and harmless person.”
The Gospel of John the Evangelist states that “John saw Jesus coming unto him, and said, Behold the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!”
The sacrifice is one of the most important themes of the Bible, as the creation of the world is somehow a sacrifice of our Creator: He is a self-sufficient Being who holds everything for the endless bliss. The Almighty as if self-limited Himself, “minimized” His presence from some spheres of the universe to “step back” for other beings and many other creatures and worlds.
The Apostle John was acutely conscious of the sacrificial meaning of the expression “The Lamb of God.” He starts his evangelical story about Jesus introducing Him as the Lamb of God and from his point of view, this is the key to understanding of the meaning of His ministry.
