Intro – Jesus has many names that He goes by, one of them is the Lamb. It is maybe one of the more significant names because it entails so many biblical truths.

I. The Lamb has power to take away sin. (29)

A. In the OT the lamb was used as an offering.

1. Our first hint of God’s Lamb is in Gen.22:8

2. The Passover lamb had to be perfect.  Ex.12:5, 7, 13

3. The lamb was also used for atonement. Lev.4:35

B. In the OT these offerings had to be repeated.  Heb.7:27, Heb.9:7

C. Christ is the perfect Lamb of God that Abraham spoke of.

1. He alone has the power to remove sin.  Acts 3:18-19, Acts 4:12, Heb.9:14, 24-26, 1Jn.1:7

2. He gives a permanent forgiveness.  Heb.10:10, Rom.5:1, Rom.8:1

II. The Lamb has the power to give eternal life. 30-33

A. Because He is eternal. Jn.8:58, Col.1:16-17

B. He alone has the power to give eternal life. JN.1:4, 12, Jn.11:25, Rom.6:22-23, Jn.14:6, 1Jn.5:12

III. The Lamb has power to judge. (34)

A. Because He is God. Mt.1:23, Acts 17:30-31

B. In the end He will judge. Rev.5:6-9, Rev.6:16, Rev.20:12

Con. – Considering all His power, it’s good to know Him as the Lamb “who takes away the sin of the world”.   It’s the reason He came into the world. Matt.1:21
