11 New Testament

12 Jesus is Clearly referred to as the Lamb in the New Testament. ‘The next day he saw Jesus coming towards him and declared “Here is the Lamb of God Who takes away the sin of the world!”’John 1:29 Jesus himself identified with the suffering servant of Isaiah. Jesus said “the Son of Man must suffer”: Mark 8:31 The Early Church recognized Jesus as the suffering servant. See Acts 8: & Passion Narratives 1 Peter 1: “You know you were ransomed….with the precious blood of Christ, like that of a lamb, without defect or blemish.” “I am thirsty”. A jar full of vinegar was standing there. So they put a sponge full of the wine on a branch of hyssop and held it to his mouth.” John 19:28-29

14 And screamed, You, carry His cross! At first I tried to resist him Then his hand reached for his sword And so I knelt and took The cross from the Lord I placed it on my shoulder And started down the street The blood that He'd been shedding Was running down my cheek They led us to Golgotha They drove nails Deep in His feet and hands An yet upon the cross I heard Him pray, Father forgive them Oh, never have I seen such love In any other eyes Into they hands I commit My spirit, He prayed and then He died I stood for what seemed like years I'd lost all sense of time Until I felt two tiny hands Holding tight to mine My children stood there weeping I heard the oldest say Father, please forgive us The lamb ran away Daddy, daddy what have we seen here? There's so much That we don't understand So I took them in my arms And we turned and faced the cross And then I said, Dear children, watch the Lamb Walking on the road to Jerusalem The time had come to sacrifice again My two small sons, They walked beside me on the road The reason that they came Was to watch the lamb CHORUS: Daddy, daddy what will we see there? There's so much we don't understand So I told them of Moses And Father Abraham And then I said, Dear children, Watch the lamb For there will be so many In Jerusalem today We must be sure the lamb Doesn't run away And I told them of Moses And Father Abraham And then I said, Dear children, Watch the lamb When we reached the city I knew something must be wrong There were no joyful worshippers No joyful worship songs I stood there with my children In the midst of angry men And then I heard the crowd cry out, Crucify Him We tried to leave the city But we could not get away Forced to play in this drama, A part I did not wish to play Why upon this day Were men condemned to die? Why were we standing here Where soon they would pass by? I look and said, Even now they come The first one cried for mercy, The people gave him none The second one was violent, He was arrogant and loud I still can hear his angry voice Screaming at the crowd Then someone said, There's Jesus! And I scarce believed my eyes A man so badly beaten, He barely looked alive Blood poured from His body, From the thorns upon His brow Running down the cross And falling to the ground I watched Him as He struggled I watched Him as He fell The cross came down upon His back, The crowd began to yell In that moment I felt such agony In that moment I felt such loss Until a Roman soldier grabbed my arm
