We want to talk to you a few minutes about this wonderful lamb that was used in the Passover the night that the Israelites left Egyptian bondage. God said of the lamb that it was to be without blemish. The word blemish here refers to the physical structure of the lamb. You will notice the lamb could not have been blind or crippled or one-eyed or even bob-tailed, or a nick out of his ear. The reason for that is the lamb was a type of Christ. At a glance the reader will see why God required a lamb with a perfect body, for a deformed lamb could not properly represent Christ.
In proof of that, if the reader will turn to 1st Peter, 1st chapter and 18th, 19th, and 20th verses, we have this remarkable statement: Peter said, "Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things as silver and gold from your vain conversation, received by the tradition from your fathers, but with the precious blood of Christ as of a lamb without blemish and without spot, who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world but was manifest in these last times for you." The reader will see the marks of similarity between the lamb of the Passover and Christ. They were both without blemish, they are both called "The Lamb," they both were to lay down their lives by the shedding of their blood. And the lamb in the Passover being without blemish is one of the most beautiful types of Christ given in the Old Testament history.
Here we might help the reader some by adding two quotations, one from the Old Testament, and one from the new. When Abraham was going to the mountain with his boy Isaac to offer him as a sacrifice to God we read in the 22d chapter of Genesis, that Isaac said to his father, "Where is the lamb?" The reader will remember that Abraham said to Isaac, "My son, God will provide himself a lamb." Then we notice again in the 1st chapter of John that when John the Baptist saw Jesus Christ coming to Jordan to receive baptism at his hands, John the Baptist pointed to Christ and said, "Behold the Lamb of God that taketh away the sin of the world." How strange it would seem that a question of such importance as was asked by Isaac was unanswered for nineteen hundred years. For the reader will remember that Isaac said, "Where is the lamb?" and John said, "Behold the Lamb!" But between the question and the answer nearly two thousand years rolled by, and Isaac's question could not be answered until Jesus came, for Jesus was the fulfilling of the question that was asked by Isaac.
