The Lamb of God: The Bible's Unfolding Revelation of SacrificeBy: Robert L. Reymond
The central theme of Holy Scripture is the unfolding revelation of its doctrinal teaching on Jesus as the 'slain Lamb of God'. The doctrine of Jesus as God's slain lamb runs like a thick cable from Genesis to Revelation binding the entirety of Scripture together. Indeed Revelation 13:8 speaks of Jesus as the lamb who was slain from the creation of the world, while 1 Peter 1:19-20 speaks of the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect who was chosen before the creation of the world. Reymond examines the biblical depictions concerning the Lamb of God - illuminating to us the central place that the suffering of the Messiah as God's lamb occupies in God's eternal purpose and earths history. Christ's Lamb work is to be found throughout the Old and New Testaments and its pivotal importance for each of our lives is explored in depth. Challenging, absorbing and full of spiritual nourishment Robert Reymond has produced a unique devotional study.
