When I began this piece, I had in mind John the Baptist’s statement recorded in John 1:29. When John saw Jesus coming towards him he said, “Behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world.” Having heard this phrase my whole life, I incorrectly assumed that the phrase “Lamb of God” was spattered throughout the whole Bible. Surprisingly, that phrase seems to be exclusive to John.

Then I wondered about “Passover Lamb.” My search for that phrase came up empty as well. The lamb appears to be referred to as only the Passover or Pesach. So at this point in my research, this will be my lamb that illustrates my vision of the Lamb… or as Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians 5:7… ”indeed Christ our Passover who was sacrificed for us (me).”

I am interested in other understandings and/or research about this topic. Please don’t hesitate to comment below.


Seh (śê)



sThe ‘Shin’ is the picture two teeth, usually meaning to tear, rip, or destroy.
hThe ‘Hey’ illustrates a man with his arms up like he is trying to get attention, so it refers to behold, look, observe, or reveal. In this case it is used as “what comes from.”

Of the teeth (those that graze)

It is interesting that the Hebrew words Aman (Amen/Believe) and Emuwnah (Faith) are linked as Aman is the root of Emuwnah. While Emuwnah is the actions in our life that reveal our relationship with the Life Giver; when we say Amen, we affirm that relationship. “And he (Abraham) believed in the Lord; and He accounted it to him for righteousness.” (Genesis 15:6)


Aman (ah-man’)



aThe ‘Aleph’ is the picture of an ox head and illustrates the strength of an animal. It can mean strong, power, or leader.
MThe ‘Mem’ illustrates water or waves. As a nomadic people, the Hebrews did not understand the waves or waters of the ocean. So the letter came to mean chaos, mighty, or blood.
nThe ‘Nun’ represents a sprout and gives us the meaning of life and continuing to a new generation. It can have the meaning of continuing, perpetuating, sustaining, offspring, or heir.

I strongly agree with what God has shown me about the mystery of eternal life.
