Mashiach: Lamb

Hora’ah – הוראה – Teaching

“Here the term ‘mashiyah’ is mentioned explicitly as identical to the angel Metatron. Moreover the quotation from Isaiah 11:12 was traditionally understood as pointing to the Messiah … The master mentioned here is apparently G-d, whose name is found within Metatron or the Messiah  … The picture, however, is more complex and interesting. Immediately after this passage, the author again mentions Sandalphon as an ox, and the “Prince of the Back, the Price of Judgment, but the sheep, which is the innocent lamb, is in its entirety good, and it is Moshe, the Prince of Mercy.  The juxtaposition of the ox and the lamb, the latter standing for Metatron and Messiah is reminiscent of the well-know motif of Jesus Christ as the Lamb of G-d.”
Messianic Mystics, Moshe Idel, pp.303,304

“When the life force in the animal, which is called the holy sparks, is properly sacrificed to G-d, it creates an elevation of all the life force in all the animal kingdom. It is all elevated to its spiritual source in heaven in order to draw down great influx and blessing to all Creation. The three pure animals are the cow, goat and lamb. Our sages teach that these animals correspond to our three Patriarchs, or to the three properties which the Patriarchs symbolize. The power of the cow corresponds to Abraham, who represents loving-kindness. The power of the goat corresponds to Isaac, who represents awe. The power of the lamb corresponds to Jacob, who represents mercy. The very voice of the lamb arouses mercy. When the lamb is sacrificed it arouses the mercy of G-d to redeem his people from bondage and slavery. This is why the lamb was chosen especially to be the Passover offering.”
