The Lamb

A lamb is a young sheep. Lambs need to be led, which is always why they have a shepherd. They can be easily killed by larger animals. They are gentle creatures. A lamb never makes a sound when they shear his wool.

The lamb was always used for burnt offer­ings, and usually could not have blemishes. The lamb’s wool was as white as snow which is also a picture of our sins being washed away.

In Isaiah 53 we are told that Jesus was brought as a lamb to the slaughter. The lamb is a picture of Christ Who was without blemish and without spot, like unto God. Revelation says that the Lamb will receive power and riches and wis­dom and strength and honor and glory in heav­en. We are His lambs and we will be with the Lamb in heaven also.
