Behold the Lamb of God
Andrew Peterson's "Behold the Lamb of God" is a truly great Christmas album. It serves as a kind of primer on biblical history. The songs point to God's good hand of providence moving from the first inklings of Messiah in the Old Testament to the birth narratives to the ministry and atoning work of Christ. There is even a song on the geneology of Jesus which is an impressive display of lyrical dexterity.
From now and until Christmas I will be posting videos from a live performance of "Behold the Lamb of God."
