Behold the Lamb of God
The Bible isn’t a book of rules or a book of heroes. The Bible is most of all a Story. It’s an adventure story about a young Hero who comes from a far country to win back his lost treasure. It’s a love story about a brave Prince who leaves his palace, his throne – everything – to rescue the one he loves…
You see, the best thing about this Story is – it’s true…
It takes the whole Bible to tell the Story. At the center of the Story, there is a baby. Every Story in the Bible whispers his name. He’s like the missing piece of the puzzle – the piece that makes all the other pieces fit together and suddenly you can see a beautiful picture.” (Sally Lloyd Jones, Jesus Storybook Bible)
Through our Advent Devotional, we will behold the Story of the Lamb of God, as told in the Bible, in readings, and through music. Andrew Peterson has written the Advent Story in song through his Behold the Lamb of God album. The devotional readings will be undergirded with songs from Behold the Lamb of God that you can listen to online. These songs will help you hear, comprehend, and experience the retelling of Jesus, the lamb of God, in the Bible, hopefully in a fresh new way. I hope through this devotional, and these songs from Andrew Peterson that give inspiration to it, you will be filled with wonder and amazement at the baby, the boy, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of all who trust in him!
