  Follow the Lamb
Jesus, the Lamb of God."These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever He goeth." Revelation 14:4.

After the temptation, Jesus returned to the banks of the Jordan, and mingled with the disciples of John.

At that time men from the rulers at Jerusalem were questioning John as to his authority for teaching the people and baptizing. They asked if he was the Messiah, or Elias, or “that prophet” (referring to Moses). To all of which he answered, “I am not.” They asked:— “Who art thou? That we may give an answer to them that sent us?”

“He said, I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make straight the way of the Lord, as said the prophet Esiaias.” John 1:22, 23; Isaiah 40:3.

At this moment John saw Jesus on the banks of the Jordan. His face lighted up as he pointed to Him and said: —

“There standeth One among you, whom ye know not; He it is, who coming after me is preferred before me, whose shoe’s latchet I am not worthy to unloose." John 1:26, 27.

The next day John again saw Jesus, and cried:—

“Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world!” John 1:29; 1 Peter 1:19.

Two of the disciples of John hearing this, followed the Saviour. Other disciples were chosen as they journeyed on their way to Galilee.
