Please click the play button above to listen now.
"In our Gospel for today, John the Baptist points out Jesus to two of his disciples with the words, ""Behold the Lamb of God."" The central claim of the Gospels is that Jesus came to offer himself in sacrifice for our sins. This idea was given dramatic expression by two great twentieth-century Christian authors, J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis. Jesus the Lamb of God is on display in both the Lord of the Rings and the Narnia Chronicles. When you watch the movies based upon those books, think of John the Baptist's word."
