Epiphany 2 – What kind of lamb is Jesus, that he should be described as "The Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world"? The sins from which we are saved are the sins of the world itself as we try to get even with each other. But God has modeled the way out of the initial problem of sin begetting sin and violence begetting violence. Jesus was crucified at Passover time, when sheep were sacrificed to commemorate freedom; and God has given us Jesus, the gentle, non-violent, non-retaliating Lamb who invites us to follow him into the promised land of life, love and freedom.
John 1: 29-34
