He was led as a lamb to the slaughter. Isaiah 53:7 (NKJV)
Isaiah’s prophecy was fulfilled in our Saviour, step by step. From praying in Gethsemane He was led to Caiaphas. From a long night of accusation and abuse by the religious leaders, He was led to Pilate. From Pilate He was led by the soldiers into the hall called the Praetorium. Then, crowned with thorns, He was led to Calvary (Mark 14:53, 15:1, 16). He was led—as a lamb to the slaughter and as the Lamb of God He laid down His life for you and for me. Hallelujah, what a Saviour! —Rex Trogdon
As Lamb of God, Thy path we view,
Thy Father’s will Thy whole delight;
To Calvary we trace Thy way,
Each step of Thine, with glory bright.
—Charles H. Spurgeon
