"BEHOLD THE LAMB OF GOD"

There is only one possible remedy for sin, with its accompaniments of human suffering, sorrow, disease, and death. That remedy is spiritual innocence. John the Baptist glimpsed this truth when he saw Jesus approaching him at Jordan and exclaimed (John 1:29), "Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world."

Throughout the Bible the lamb is used as the symbol of innocence, purity, and the forgiveness of sins. Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, refers to this symbolism by using the words "innocence and purity" as a part of her definition of "Lamb of God" in the Glossary of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 590). In the book of Revelation, this gentle Lamb is shown destroying the sum total of evil. Explaining this victory, Mrs. Eddy tells us (Science and Health, pp. 567,568): "The beast and the false prophets are lust and hypocrisy. These wolves in sheep's clothing are detected and killed by innocence, the Lamb of Love. Divine Science shows how the Lamb slays the wolf. Innocence and Truth overcome guilt and error."
