Lambs Of God Season 1 - Episode 1 ~REPACK~


Most of us picture lambs as downy white animals frolicking in rolling green meadows or carried tenderly in the arms of their shepherd. Lambs represent gentleness, purity, and innocence. Though it is one of the most tender images of Christ in the New Testament, the phrase "Lamb of God" would have conjured far more disturbing pictures to those who heard John the Baptist hail Jesus with these words. Hadn't many of them, at one time or another, carried one of their own lambs to the altar to be slaughtered as a sacrifice for their sins, a lamb that they had fed and bathed, the best animal in their small flock? Hadn't the bloody sacrifice of an innocent animal provided a vivid image of the consequences of transgressing the Mosaic law? Surely, John must have shocked his listeners by applying the phrase "Lamb of God" to a living man.




Lambs of God Season 1 - Episode 1



These various sacrificial practices in Jewish culture often involved lambs; this animal had a very important place in the religion. Lambs are known for their white coats, and white is a symbol of purity and cleanliness.


Can you begin to see how why Jesus was called the Lamb of God? He, too, was stainless, perfect and free of sin. He was perfectly pure. And just like the lambs were sacrificed for sin, so would Christ be sacrificed.


When Ignatius' intention is revealed, the sisters take to unorthodox methods to ensure their lives are not disrupted, including very uncharacteristic acts recalling those of Annie Wilkes (Kathy Bates) in Misery (Rob Reiner, 1990). Although the first episode is strictly a four-person affair, later episodes venture outwards towards the mainland, introducing viewers to Ignatius' alcoholic sister, Frankie (Kate Mulvany); Church figurehead Bishop Malone (John Bell); another young priest, Father Bob (Damon Herriman); local police officer Barnaby (Daniel Henshall); and a mysterious heiress, Lady Rose Stanford (Sigrid Thornton).


And you see these lambs being offered up for many different reasons. For example, when the priests were consecrated, lambs were offered each day for seven days. And then those priests had to sacrifice lambs to cover their own sins before they could perform their duties on behalf of the people.


Lambs were sacrificed for peace offerings, for sin offerings, as restitution for guilt. Lambs were offered up regularly by the priests on behalf of the Israelites. Every morning and every evening a lamb was offered up. Two additional lambs were offered every Sabbath, and seven additional lambs were offered on the first day of each month. There were lambs offered on the seven annual feast days or holy days of Israel, extra sacrifices of lambs that were offered on those days.


And in addition to all this, there were other special occasions when lambs were to be offered. In preparation for the Lord to meet with His people and speak to them, lambs would be sacrificed. Women would sacrifice lambs for purification after childbirth. When lepers were cleansed a lamb would be offered. A lamb would be sacrificed in fulfillment of religious vows. When they consecrated the tabernacle a lamb would be offered. Lambs killed. Lambs killed. Innocent, young, male lambs without blemish shed, slain, killed, slaughtered, and their blood running through the tabernacle.


The historian, Josephus, tells us that in the time of Christ that at the time of Passover there would be a quarter of a million Passover lambs that were slaughtered. And the blood of those lambs would flow out through viaducts down into the river, the brook Kidron.


We all know the end of that story. Pharaoh let the Israelites go, and the Israelites celebrated this event each year, with hundreds of thousands of Jews coming to Jerusalem to sacrifice their lambs and to eat the Passover supper in the Holy City.


The Word came as a spotless Lamb to offer the perfect sacrifice of love that would outweigh all human evil and therefore take away all sins. The Shepherd offered his blood for our sins and gave his body as our new Passover meal. His aim? To give his sheep the strength to become lambs who offer their lives for the life of the world (Romans 12:2), just as he did.


At that time those who had come from captivity, the returned exiles, offered burnt offerings to the God of Israel, twelve bulls for all Israel, ninety-six rams, seventy-seven lambs, and as a sin offering twelve male goats. All this was a burnt offering to the Lord.

All lambs had to be brought to Jerusalem (from where they were raised in Bethlehem) and be offered to the high priest. Jesus entered Jerusalem riding on a donkey and went to the temple. He cleansed it to prepare for a true, pure, perfect sacrifice.


The sacrifices occurred in the morning and evening. These times coincide with our clocks at the times of 9 am and 3 pm. By 3 pm, the Passover lambs were killed. (Remember, 1 lamb per family, so there was a lot of sacrificing going on.)


In the Old Testament, lambs were one of the common animals of sacrifice used by the Israelites to offer to the living God. Other animals, such as goats, rams, doves, and bulls, were also used in various sacrifices.


Now this is what you shall offer on the altar: two lambs of the first year, day by day continually. One lamb you shall offer in the morning, and the other lamb you shall offer at twilight. With the one lamb shall be one-tenth of an ephah of flour mixed with one-fourth of a hin of pressed oil, and one-fourth of a hin of wine as a drink offering.


This is just one example of how a lamb was to be sacrificed. Not only did the Israelites offer lambs every evening and morning, but they also offered them at the beginning of each month and sacrificed them for ceremonies, celebrations, cleansing after birth, and praising God for healing.


Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male a year old. You may take it from the sheep or from the goats, and you shall keep it until the fourteenth day of this month, when the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill their lambs at twilight.


Then Moses called all the elders of Israel and said to them, Go and select lambs for yourselves according to your clans, and kill the Passover lamb. Take a bunch of hyssop and dip it in the blood that is in the basin, and touch the lintel and the two doorposts with the blood that is in the basin. None of you shall go out of the door of his house until the morning. For the Lord will pass through to strike the Egyptians, and when He sees the blood on the lintel and on the two doorposts, the Lord will pass over the door and will not allow the destroyer to enter your houses to strike you. 041b061a72
