John the Baptist introduces Jesus as "the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world" (John 1:29). What does this mean? We have become so conditioned to understand this in a legal sense, where Jesus came to make a payment to the Father to legally set us right with the Father. But does this describe what Jesus actually accomplished? In this Bible study we will consider how Jesus takes away the sin of the world. We will also use Isaiah and Revelation to discuss the importance of Jesus as the "Lamb of God."

More than any other book in the Bible, the Gospel of John highlights Jesus as none other than God in human form. John points to Jesus as the Creator, the "Logos", the "I AM" of the Old Testament, and repeatedly quotes Jesus as saying "if you have seen me, you have seen the Father." What difference does it make for us to equate Jesus with God? It should make all the difference in the world. Doctrine #1 and the most important foundation of all is that Jesus is God's one true self-portrait.
