"...if anyone makes the assistance of grace depend on the humility or obedience of man and does not agree that it is a gift of grace itself that we are obedient and humble, he contradicts the Apostle who says, "What have you that you did not receive?" (1 Cor. 4:7), and, "But by the grace of God I am what I am" (1 Cor. 15:10). (Council of Orange: Canon 6)

    The Sacrificial Lamb

    "For Christ, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed." - 1 Corinthians 5:7

    Here is a very interesting video (introduced by Todd Bolen) on the significance of the sacrificial lamb in Jewish thought, pointing us to the atonement of Christ.

    I think in today's sanitised, 'civilised' and virtual world we need to see images like this to remind ourselves of the horrific, vulgar and primitive nature of the sacrifice - a sacrifice that was required because of the horrific, vulgar and primitive nature of us in our sin.
    Most moving of all was the footage of people jumping for joy at seeing the bloodstained knife. If only we had that joy and more upon contemplating Christ's sacrifice.

    Just uncovers my own need to die to my cowardous!

    That truly was very difficult to watch.

    How easy I murder people yet I just fall apart emotionally immediately when watching that animal being led to the slaughter!

    Oh wretched man I am, too!
