This is the eighth piece of art for our series “We Believe.” You can see the explanation to the entire series here.
In this image the lamb is cut in two to show the sacrifice which leads to justification for our sins. When I picture Christ removing our sins and making us justified and pure before God I think of the verse in Isaiah 1:18 “Come now, let us reason together, says the Lord: though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall become like wool.” On top of this image we see the chaotic blackness of sin and death. The sacrificed lamb in the middle is what purifies this-resulting in the whitest of snow-and justifying us before God.
