In recent times, the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ which is seen as the fulfillment of the types and shadows of the Mosaic Law to bring salvation to mankind have been downplayed. Many Christians do not fully comprehend the subjects that imply the passion of Jesus as the sacrificial Lamb of God. The role of this sacrificial idea of Christ as the source and object of our salvation is paramount to proper biblical understanding and missions in the church. Hence the need for a comprehensive understanding of the death of Jesus. The author carefully studied the sacrificial rites prevalent in the Old Testament Jewish religion, pointing it as means to an end-the sacrifice of Christ. The Johannine theology of sacrifice was examined to illustrate the vicarious death of Christ form the Fourth Gospel and to aid an understanding of its implications. This work should help shed some lights in theological and biblical studies, as well as help in boosting the faith of Christians as it awakens them to their duty in regards to Christ' salvific work on the cross.
