The Lamb of God
The Essenes lived in the Judean wilderness where they awaited the coming of Messiah. While they were occupied with ritual cleansings and feasting on locusts and wild honey, John, who may have been an Essene himself, found the Messiah they were all looking for. “On the next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, ‘Look, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world! This is the one about whom I said, “After me comes a man who is greater than I am, because he existed before me.”’” (John 1:29-30) What are you waiting for? Tell someone about Jesus today.
