The Lamb of God? What Does That Mean?

SermonThe Lamb of God? What Does That Mean?  Sermon For the 2nd Sunday After the Epiphany
Text:  John 1:29-41
29  The next day he saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, “Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!
30  This is he of whom I said, ‘After me comes a man who ranks before me, because he was before me.’
31  I myself did not know him, but for this purpose I came baptizing with water, that he might be revealed to Israel.”
32  And John bore witness: “I saw the Spirit descend from heaven like a dove, and it remained on him.
33  I myself did not know him, but he who sent me to baptize with water said to me, ‘He on whom you see the Spirit descend and remain, this is he who baptizes with the Holy Spirit.’
34  And I have seen and have borne witness that this is the Son of God.”
35  The next day again John was standing with two of his disciples,
36  and he looked at Jesus as he walked by and said, “Behold, the Lamb of God!”
37  The two disciples heard him say this, and they followed Jesus.
38  Jesus turned and saw them following and said to them, “What are you seeking?” And they said to him, “Rabbi” (which means Teacher), “where are you staying?”
39  He said to them, “Come and you will see.” So they came and saw where he was staying, and they stayed with him that day, for it was about the tenth hour.
40  One of the two who heard John speak and followed Jesus was Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother.
41  He first found his own brother Simon and said to him, “We have found the Messiah” (which means Christ).
