The Bible is from beginning to end the story of the Lamb. The one John pointed to and said, "Look, the Lamb of God" is the same one who said, "These are the Scriptures that testify about me." This Lenten season we will search those Scriptures to see for ourselves the story of the Lamb. Through this Lamb God has written eternal salvation into our life's story.
On the Vigil of Easter we see the story of the Lamb find its way to the tomb. As the Lord slept in the silence of death the world waited. Would death hold the Son of God? Had God accepted his appointed sacrifice? Would there be a new dawn? The answer was yes! By going to the tomb and rising once more, the Lamb has assured that we too will rise with him. Death once ruled over us, but now we are free. The Lamb is our deliverer.
