Paschal Musings

Paschal Musings

St. John the Baptist said: “Behold the Lamb of God”. He did not refer to Jesus as the atonement goat.

The Church understood the Cross as a Paschal Lamb sacrifice, as a sign against the angel of death. This is further affirmed in the Resurrection. It is not a payment for sin; it is a defeat of the effects of sin (death).
