Behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world. (John 1:29)
John the Baptist was the first to identify Jesus as the Lamb of God, or Agnus Dei, in Latin. This identification inaugurated Jesus’ public ministry of teaching and preaching God’s message of love and forgiveness.
This pin depicts Jesus as the resurrected, triumphant Agnus Dei carrying the vexillum.
