Lesson three

The Lamb of God



Answer Key


1.        John 3: 16 reveals that God love every inhabitant of the world so much that, He, God, provided the only means possible for sinful mankind to be reconciled to Himself, God. The way in which He did that was a blood sacrifice, and, that blood sacrifice was the blood sacrifice of His Son. The Lord Jesus Christ, all the Cross at Calvary. There has never been a time in all of time and eternity with you, as an individual did not exist in the mind of God. Therefore, that sacrifice of His Son on Calvary was for you personally, as well is for anyone else who is willing to confess they are sinners, and in simple childlike faith, believe in the Lord Jesus Christ as the Son of God, and Gods sacrifice for the sins of sinful men, and receive Him as their Lord and Savior.


2.        Most Bible scholars are in agreement that, in order to make clothes for Adam and Eve after they sinned that, He, God, killed at least one animal and use the skin of that animal to make clothing for them. Yes, He could have created skin without killing an animal, but given what we know about the blood sacrifices He instituted, it is believed that He transferred the sins of Adam and Eve to the animal or animals that He killed in order to clothe , and in doing so, transferred the sins of Adam and Eve to the animals so that their sins were put to death in the animal or animals. Further proof of this is that their first sons, Abel and Cain both knew of the requirement for blood sacrifices which they could only have learned from their parents.


3.        Hebrews 9:22 makes it very clear, that, without the shedding of blood there can be no remission, no forgiveness of sin (s). There had to be a blood sacrifice for the sins of man, a truth that is further borne out by Leviticus 17:11.



Le 17:11 For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul.


4.        2 Corinthians 5:21 further reveals that God used His own Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, as the sacrifice for the sins of those who would trust in Him, believe in Him, and receive Him as their Savior in that He, God, made His, Jesus who had no sin, to become sin on the Cross, so that He took our sins upon Himself.  He then made those who believe in Him and who receive as their Lord and Savior to become as righteous as Himself. In short, Jesus took our sins, and gave believers a share in His righteousness.



5.        Leviticus 4:28 reveals that the animal to be sacrificed for sin had to be free of any blemish or defect, symbolic of being sinless. Hebrews 4:15 reveals that Christ Jesus Himself had no sin. Therefore, He, Jesus, The Lamb of God was without sin, without any blemish, and therefore was a suitable and acceptable sacrifice to God as the sacrifice for the sins of man.
