The Lamb of God

From the March 30, 1946 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel

One of the most dramatic incidents related in the Gospels is the account of John the Baptist preaching in the wilderness of Judea, calling the people to repentance, and bidding them make way for the coming of the Christ. When Jesus appeared, John recognized him at once as the long-awaited Messiah, and announced him with these words: "Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world" ( John 1:29 ).
