The next day John the Baptist saw Jesus coming to him and said,
“Behold, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world.” 
John 1:29

A lamb had special significance to the Jews. A lamb was sacrificed each year during Passover. God provided a lamb to Abraham for sacrifice instead of his son Isaac. But Jesus was much more. He was the perfect sacrificial lamb.

Religion had become a set of rules to follow. Jesus was not about rules, though we sometimes still like to pin rules and conditions to Jesus. Jesus was about repentance. Repentance not religion. Grace not rules. He is the perfect lamb to take away our sin, which is what we all need.
