Lamb of God

Francisco de Zurbaran, The Lamb of God, 1640
The Lamb of God, Francisco de Zurbarán, illustrates a painting of God’s sacrifice.Throughout biblical history, a lamb’s sacrifice reflects human’s sin and the trespasses against God. In the modern day, a lamb signifies one's commitment to others and the self-sacrifices they accomplish.  In reverse, the chicken associates with a coward. Biologically, a chicken delivers part of one’s-self (egg) and ignores the difficult situations.  Being a chicken in society represents neglecting peace, love, and the caring for others because of his/her potential outcome. 

“The Lamb of God” refers to Jesus. During the time of Passover, a lamb becomes the sacrificing grace.  Two thousand years ago, a new type of lamb became the sacrifice.  With thorns, scars, and blood coving His body, Jesus’s death on the cross delivered us peace, love, and care. Zurburan reminds society of the forgiveness of sins and the ultimate gift of Jesus Christ.
