The next day, John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith,
Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.
“The lamb of Abel and the lamb of Abraham and the lamb of Isaac and the lamb of Judah and the Passover lamb, all these were in the lambs that men had presented. But now comes the lamb that nobody else could ever present. He is God Almight’s Lamb, the summation and finish of all the lambs that ever were or are to be. This is the full, clean preliminary summation of what all the dying lambs meant through the centuries.”
And He Dwelt Among Us by A.W. Tozer
James L. Snyder, in his Introduction to And He Dwelt Among Us, wrote this about A.W. Tozer: “He out Davided David, meaning, of course, that like David, Tozer had a way of presenting truth in a musical frame that set the heart to singing.”
Which is why I love reading most everything that A.W. Tozer wrote.
