A Prayer
of Jesus
I thank thee, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hidden these things from the wise and understanding and revealed them to babes; yea, Father, for such was thy gracious will.

  The Voice of Jesus
This is my Son, my Chosen; listen to him!
Salvation: The Lamb of God?  John 1:29,36
The False Teaching
He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth; like a lamb that is led to the slaughter, and like a sheep that before its shearers is dumb, so he opened not his mouth. (Isaiah 53:7) Behold, the Lamb of God!"(Jn. 1:36 - John the Baptist); Christ, our paschal lamb, has been sacrificed.  (I Cor. 5:7- Paul);  Now, hear a modern voice : If the only way into heaven was through our own goodness, then none of us could be saved. As the Bible says about heaven, "Nothing impure will ever enter it, nor will anyone who does what is shameful or deceitful, but only those whose names are written in the Lamb's book of life" (Revelation 21:27). But listen: We don't have to depend on our own goodness! That's because Jesus Christ -- the sinless lamb of God -- took all our sins upon Himself when He died on the cross for us.  We deserve to die -- but He died in our place.  This is how much God loves us!  Don't depend on yourself or your goodness to save you, but by faith trust Christ alone for your salvation today. 
The tragedy of Christianity is this view of  Jesus as the Lamb of God, because they listen to  anyone other than Jesus!
Exposing the Error

The error arises from the belief that the entire Bible is the Word of God. They make a good case for the doctrine on this view of the bible.  That is why Christians believe it. But Jesus has judged the Old Testament thus: You search the scriptures, because you think that in them you have eternal life; and it is they that bear witness to me; yet you refuse to come to me that you may have life.(Jn 5:39,40)  He judged the New Testament thus, apart from his own words, thus: False prophets and false Christs will arise and show signs and wonders, to lead astray, if possible, the elect.  But take heed; I have told you all things beforehand (Mk.13:22,23). He has judged his own words thus: My testimony is true (Jn. 8:14). To all who seek Truth, he gives this rule: If you continue in my word, you will know the truth (Jn. 8:31,32). As to the source of his words, he leaves no doubt:
The Father who sent me has himself given me command what to say and what to speak (Jn. 12:49). The error arises because they do not listen to Jesus' words.  He explains this: He who is of God hears the words of God; the reason why you do not hear them is that you are not of God (Jn. 8:47).  Read more here: The Scriptures.
Declaring the Truth
What is he, if not the Lamb of God? Listen to him: I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep. He who is a hireling and not a shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and flees; and the wolf snatches them and scatters them. He flees because he is a hireling and cares nothing for the sheep. I am the good shepherd; I know my own and my own know me, as the Father knows me and I know the Father; and I lay down my life for the sheep. That's soooo clear. You need no one to  explain it. Men crucified a shepherd, not a lamb! And look! He has also explained the hirelings - who teach this false doctrine!
But how does a crucified shepherd save one from sin and death? The prime function of a shepherd is to lead the sheep -- so hear him: If any man would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me.  For whoever would save his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life for my sake will find it.(Mt. 16:24,25)  You want to know, before doing that, where he was going?  Listen: I am coming to thee. (Holy Father)(Jn.17:11)  More & More.
