“Behold the Lamb of God”: An Easter Celebration
Followers of Jesus Christ since the beginning have referred to their Savior as the Lamb of God. While down by the river Jordan, John the Baptist was baptizing those who desired to follow the Savior. When the Savior approached the Baptist, John declared, “Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world” (John 1:29). After John baptized Jesus, he bore record “that he had baptized the Lamb of God” (1 Nephi 10:10). The next day, when John and two of his disciples saw Jesus, the Baptist again proclaimed, “Behold the Lamb of God!” (John 1:36).
The fourth annual BYU Easter Conference was unique because it was held in conjunction with the superb exhibit “Beholding Salvation: Images of Christ” held at BYU’s Museum of Art from November 2006 to June 2007. This volume includes the keynote address by Elder F. Enzio Busche, emeritus member of the First Quorum of the Seventy, as well as selected papers by Latter-day Saint scholars from many different disciplines across BYU campus exploring the life and teachings of the Lamb of God from a variety of perspectives including history, doctrine, art, and archaeology. Featuring beautiful artwork, this volume celebrates the life and sacrifice of the Lamb of God.
