This week we discussed the meaning of John 1:29-43 and created art that depicted the verse.
The day after Jesus was baptized he went back to the Jordan River. When John the Baptist saw Jesus, he said “Here is the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world!” In other words, John was saying that Jesus would take away the sins of all of God’s family.
