The lamb and the lion

This traditional Mandarin Chinese character of RIGHTEOUSNESS is ““ , which is made up with ” 羊 (LAMB) “ above “ 我(ME) “. In other words, when you set the lamb above me, it’s called righteousness. In the Bible, Yeshua (Jesus) came as the sacrificial lamb without blemish to substitute and die for our sins.

In Romans 3:22-26 (CJB) that ” it is a righteousness that comes from God, through the faithfulness of Yeshua the Messiah, to all who continue trusting. For it makes no difference whether one is a Jew or a Gentile, since all have sinned and come short of earning God’s praise. By God’s grace, without earning it, all are granted the status of being considered righteous before him, throught the act redeeming us from our enslavement to sin that was accomplished by the Messiah Yeshua. God put Yeshua forward as the kapparah( atonement) for sin through his faithfulness in respect to his bloody sacrificial death. This vindicated God’s righteousness; because, in his forbearance, he had passed over( with neither punishment nor remission)  the sins people had committed in the past; and it vindicates his righteousness in the present age by showing that he is righteous himself and is also the one who makes people righteous on the ground of Yeshua’s faithfulness. ”

Romans 3:22-26 in other translation versions can be looked up here.

In John 1:29 (NIV), the next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, ” Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!”

In 1Corinthians5:7(MSG), So get rid of this “yeast.” Our true identity is flat and plain, not puffed up with the wrong kind of ingredient. The Messiah, our Passover Lamb, has already been sacrificed for the Passover meal, and we are the Unraised Bread part of the Feast.
About the passover lamb, it’s described in the book of Exodus chapter12.
Yeshua as the passover lamb the Israelites were redeemed from Egyptian slavery by an unblemished lamb, now men could be freed from slavery to sin by the Messiah, the Lamb of God. The more about Yeshua (Jesus) as the passover lamb can be read in this article ” Why Jesus is our passover lamb ” 

In Isaiah 53, talked about the Messiah as the sacrifice lamb who took up our infirmities and carried our sorrows, he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities, the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed. The Lord makes his life a guilt offering, after the suffering of his soul, he will see the light of life and be satisfied, by his knowledge the Lord’s righteous servant will justify many, and he will bear their iniquities.

In Revelation chapter 5, it talked about Yeshua is the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, as well as the sacrifice lamb that ” Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength and honour and glory and praise! “. In Isaiah 11, talked about the Messiah as a shoot will come up from the stump of Jesse, Jesse was the forefather of David. The second coming of Messiah, His character and majesty.

So this picture is referring to Yeshua our Messiah.
