It Took a Lamb

The story of Christmas is not just about a cradle in Bethlehem. It is also about the cross of Calvary. Jesus entered the world to be the final and ultimate sacrifice for sin. Hear the words of John the Baptist: "Behold the Lamb of God that takes away thee sin of the world." This Christmas Lamb, Jesus, died on the cross to cradle us in the glory of His resurrection forever. For the redemption of the world, God sent a Lamb. Join us for this 41 Day devotional journey toward Christmas.

Christmas Presence

Advent is a season of expectant waiting and preparation for both the celebration of the Nativity of Christ at Christmas and the return of Christ at the Second Coming. It traditionally encompasses the four Sundays leading up to Christmas and is centered around the four themes of hope, peace, love, and joy.

What People Are Saying

What a well-done educational resource to guide us through the Advent season! Christmas is the celebration of Christ’s birth, and It Took A Lamb reminds us that as Christians, we must not only celebrate His birth but also never forget why He came to Earth—to die for us. Cummings and Hanberry point out that even with the very words Merry Christmas, ...we are actually remembering His sacrificial death as we celebrate His birth.
Nan Kelley, Former Miss Mississippi and GAC Television Host
Drs. Scott Hanberry and Ray Cummings get it. They get it because they have spent a lifetime studying it. They get it because they have invested decades in preaching it. That is why I heartily recommend to you It Took a Lamb. Written by two pastor-theologians, It Took a Lamb is a rich resource for you to use to grasp the true meaning of the birth of Messiah during the Advent season.

Something about music makes our hearts tender, fertile ground. The songs of Geron and Becky Davis have been an intricate part of my spiritual journey and worship. This devo- tional, It Took a Lamb, is an immersive act of worship that is now a part of my time with God.
