"Behold the Lamb of God" now available from BYU Religious Studies Center

Proceedings of 2007 BYU Easter Conference

The Brigham Young University Religious Studies Center has released the proceedings of last year’s BYU Easter Conference, “Behold the Lamb of God," edited by Richard Neitzel Holzapfel, Frank F. Judd Jr. and Thomas A. Wayment.

This volume includes the keynote address by Elder F. Enzio Busche, emeritus member of the First Quorum of the Seventy of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, as well as selected papers by Church scholars from many different disciplines across BYU campus. The contents explore the life and teachings of the Lamb of God from a variety of perspectives, including history, doctrine, art and archaeology.

This publication, which also features artwork celebrating the life and sacrifice of the Lamb of God, is available for $25.95 in the BYU Bookstore.

The work’s title comes from the interaction between the Savior and John the Baptist by the river Jordon as the former was baptizing believers of Christ. As the Savior approached, John declared, “Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world” (John 1:29). After baptizing the Lord, John bore record “that he had baptized the Lamb of God” (1 Nephi 10:10). The following day, when John and two of his disciples saw Jesus, the Baptist again proclaimed, “Behold the Lamb of God!” (John 1:36).
