John 1:29 The Passion Translation (TPT)

The Lamb of God

29 The very next day John saw Jesus coming to him to be baptized, and John cried out, “Look! There he is—God’s Lamb![a] He will take away[b] the sins of the world![c]


  1. John 1:29 As the Lamb of God, Jesus was publicly washed and proven to be without flaw or blemish, ready to become the sacrifice for all the world. Although he will become the Lion of the tribe of Judah in resurrection power, John points to him as the meek Lamb, a willing sacrifice for our sins.
  2. John 1:29 Or “lift off” (the burden). The Greek word used here is often used for “lifting up and away” an anchor from off the ocean floor.
  3. John 1:29 The Aramaic is “the sins of the universe.” To take away our sins is a figure of speech that means “he will break sin’s grip from humanity, taking away both its guilt and power from those who believe.”
