When John said, “Behold the lamb of God” he lost two of his disciples. Two of those who knew John, loved John, left to investigate Jesus, described as the lamb of God. These two disciples of John left him and followed Jesus. Now, when you think about what John did, in pointing away from himself, you would have to say that this is truly admirable. It shows the real quality of John the Baptist as a man who knew what his position in God’s kingdom was. This man knew he was not the light!
