Abstract

The scriptures contain many metaphors to teach us about the Lord Jesus Christ, and a particularly appropriate symbol at Easter time is that of the lamb. The Savior is referred to as the Lamb of God from His premortal life through His triumphant millennial reign. The symbol of the lamb is appealing for its simplicity, and yet it is multifaceted, providing insights to help deepen our understanding of the Savior. The eighteenth-century poet and artist William Blake has given us a wonderful depiction of a lamb, delightfully portrayed in this little poem
