Year after year the people tried to “get right” with God by offering these finite animal sacrifices. Nevertheless, the infinite problem of sin still had no permanent solution. So God the Father sent his beloved Son from heaven to earth to become man. One day, when Jesus was beginning his public ministry, he was walking by the Jordan River. John the Baptist, pointed him out with this prophetic title: “Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!” (John 1:29) In other words, he was telling everyone that Jesus would be the final great lamb who would die once-and-for-all to deal with the problem of sin. Jesus, already fully God, took on our full humanity, joining the infinite and the finite. As a finite human he was able to represent our fallen humanity (who had created the problem), and being infinite he was able to completely heal the wounded relationship between human beings and God the Father.
