    Homily, January 14th/15th
    Behold the Lamb of God

    When the President of the United States is introduced the band plays the familiar refrain of “Hail to the Chief,” and the simple introduction follows, “Ladies and Gentlemen, The President of the United States.
    Someone said, the more important a person is, the shorter the introduction is.  Maybe so.


    In the Gospel, we have the brief introduction for a very important person.   “Behold the Lamb of God Who Takes Away The Sin Of The World.
    With these words, John the Baptist introduced Jesus Christ to the world.  The baptism of Jesus was a manifestation of His identity as the Son of God and as the Suffering Servant.


    The introduction harkens back to the Passover Lamb. The blood of the Lamb was sprinkled over the doorposts of the Hebrews when they were in Egypt so that the Angel of Death would pass over their homes; the Angel of Death was sent to kill the first born males of the Egyptians to facilitate setting free the Israelites.  Christ as the Lamb of God would have His blood sprinkled on the wood of the Cross to set us free from the slavery of sin.

    Popularly, we may select an animal or a bird for our sports teams that reflects, power, agility, ferocity, or cunning such as the Detroit Lions or the Chicago Bears or the Atlanta Falcons.

    But sheep are perceived as weak.  It would sound strange to cheer a sports team by saying:  “Go lambs.” Or “hold that line Mighty Sheep.”  Sheep have no natural defenses like sharp claws or fierce jaws.  Sheep do not work well as teams, forming circles when attacked or acting in packs for their own protection.  Sheep have little interest in being dominant or marking off their territory.  Sheep are trusting and docile so they can be led by a single shepherd.

    God chooses to manifest greatness in the form of weakness.  At Christmas we celebrated that God who was already great became small as manifest in a helpless infant in the manger
