Messianic Prophecy Number 18: Exo 12.5 – An Unblemished Lamb

Exodus 12.5 says of the Passover lamb,

“Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male of the first year. You may take it from the sheep or from the goats” (Exo 12.5).

While all the sacrifices in some way typified the sacrifice of Christ, the New Testament focuses upon

Christ being the sacrificial lamb.

Peter said,

…knowing that you were not redeemed with corruptible things, like silver or gold, from your aimless conduct received by tradition from your fathers, but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot (1Pe 1.18, 19).

Truly, Jesus is our Passover, who was sacrificed for us (1Co 5.7), because He was without blemish, without sin, and was therefore qualified to offer Himself up to God that we might find freedom from destruction, even as the Israelites found freedom from the Destroyer.
