  • There are several instances of salvation through the blood of the lamb in the Bible.


    In Exodus during the plague against the first born sons, one could be saved if they put the blood of a lamb on the door posts.


    Also, in Biblical times, the Jewish people sacraficed lambs to God in order to recieve salvation and be forgiven for their sins.


    In the New Testament, Jesus is the lamb that was lead to slaughter.  No longer do the people have to go through a priest sacraficing a lamb for salvation and forgiveness.  Jesus paid the ultimate sacrafice.  Being "washed in the blood of the lamb" refers to the fact that Jesus's death removes our sin before God so that we may enter into his kingdom.

  • In the OT, I think, in Egypt it was believed that if you spread lamb's blood on your doorway, you would be protected from the plague.
    So lamb's blood is supposed to be protective, I guess.

  • To be forgiven of sin, have right standing with God through Jesus, and having Him in your life.

  • From wiki: "For the last plague the Torah indicates that they were only spared from the final plague by sacrificing the Paschal lamb, marking their doorpost with the lamb's blood, and eating the roasted sacrifice together with Matzot (לחם עוני) in a celebratory feast."

  • Don't use Wikipedia for papers. It isn't considered a reliable source (or none of my professors would ever accept it rather) since it can be edited by anyone regardless of their credentials or truth to the information.

    1 Peter 1:18-19 Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, [as] silver and gold, from your vain conversation [received] by tradition from your fathers; But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:

  • Finally in Revelation at the end of the world, it is prophesied that a multitude will be standing with God wearing white robes. The robes are white because they were washed in the blood of the lamb (Jesus' blood). Those are our robes which were once spotted with sin but made white before God because of Jesus. (Revelation 7).
