In our previous post, we noted 1st, that the lamb was seized on the 10th day of Nisan, at the beginning of the Passover Feast.
2nd, the lamb was separated. It was set apart, kept from the rest of the flock for 4 days. It must be a male. It was hand-picked over all the others. Likewise, the Bible says that Christ was “separated from sinners” (Heb. 7:26, WEB). Christ was also a male. He is the firstborn of all creation. He is the hand-picked Lamb of God.
On the night of His betrayal, he was separated from his disciples and pseudo-disciples. The masses shouted, “Hosanna!” just a few days before. Now, they’re nowhere to be seen. Some converted themselves into a hostile crowd. The 1 close disciple who promised unflinching loyalty to Him, betrayed Him 3 times instead.
Like a lonely lamb to the slaughter, He was alone.
