Aries, the sign of the Lamb of God

ram b&wThe Mazzaroth is an ancient Zodiac, mentioned in Job, the oldest book in the Bible.  The 12 signs of the Mazzaroth tell the story of redemption and point towards the Messiah.

Aries is one of the signs.  As it is coming up to Easter, I’d like to show who Aries speaks of.

The Hebrew name is for Aries is Taleh, the lamb. The Arabic name is Al Hamal, the sheep, gentle, merciful.   The ancient Akkadian name was Bara-ziggar.

Bar means altar, or sacrifice; and ziggar means right making; so that the full name would be the sacrifice of righteousness.

Its chief star,Passover Lamb (in the forehead), is named El Nath, or El Natik, which means wounded, slain. The next, (in the left horn), is called Al Sheratan, the bruised, the wounded. The next (near to Sheratan ), is called Mesarim (Hebrew), the bound.

Aries is the sign of the Lamb of God in the heavens.  Passover was the sign of the Lamb of God in Egypt.  The ram provided to Abraham and Isaac on Mount Moriah in Israel was the sign of God providing the sacrifice for sin, Christ’s death on the cross.

John the Baptist saw Jesus and called Him “the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world”.  Take another look at Jesus this Easter.  He is who He said He was.  He thought us worthy of His sacrifice.  What is He worth to you?
