    BEHOLD THE LAMB OF GOD
    Written by Matt Miller

    The final week of life of Jesus. It was Passover week in the nation of Israel.  Passover, celebrated for over 1000 years, was fast approaching.  The thousands of lambs that were needed were there already inspected and certified by the priests as acceptable sacrifices for the remission of sins.  But things were about to change during this particular Passover.  The prophets foretold that there would be a time when God would create a new covenant between Himself and His people. A different way for sinful man to approach a holy God. Oh, there would still be a lamb-- one perfect, final, Passover lamb.  As the temple priests were offering the Passover lambs in the temple on that Friday there was another lamb being sacrificed…on a hill…just outside the city wall…on a cross…for you and me.  The cross becomes a place of hope, the tomb a place of new beginnings. Jesus said, “This cup, which is poured out for you is the new covenant in my blood.”
