John 19:1-18




A picture is worth a thousand words.

So today, I want to show you five pictures;



Five verbal pictures from the Gospel of John that show us the death of Jesus.

Each picture is just a little bit different.



So each picture shows us a little bit more about the death of Jesus.

The 1st picture in the Gospel of John is a Lamb.



John the Baptist was baptizing people when he saw Jesus approaching.

He said, “Behold the Lamb of God which taketh away the sin of the world.”



This picture of the Lamb of God draws our attention to other lambs in the    


For one thing, the Lamb of God draws our attention to the Passover Lamb.



The Passover Lamb speaks of God's deliverance of Israel from the land of   


The Hebrews slew lambs on their last night as slaves in Egypt.



They collected the blood;

Sprinkled the blood on the lintels and doorposts of their house;



Went inside;

Shut the door;

And waited for the death angel to pass over.
