Here is the Lamb of God

Here is the Lamb of God

Behold.
Small and vulnerable;
God among us.
Gospel number four
tells us that we deal no longer
with the infant of Bethlehem,
with its sentimental trappings
of wise men, blinking lights and angels.
The long-expected one,
the divine Logos, has come,
according to John,
to be a lamb;
to speak to humankind of sacrifice,
of letting-go,
and of death.
Of love, of grace,
and of blood
that demands a response;
not of vengeance,
but of generosity.
Weakness,
by all earthly standards,
but the way of hope, peace,
and resurrection.
Here is the Lamb of God.
