29 The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, “Look, the Lamb of God. He takes away the sins of the world!
15 And before anyone can go and tell them, they must be sent. As the Scriptures say, “How wonderful it is to see someone coming to tell good news!”
66 And then, when God presents his firstborn Son to the world, he says
“Let all God’s angels worship him.”

We usually associate Messiah
with Christmas, but Handel wrote it to be performed at Easter.
He drew the words of the songs from Scripture, choosing passages that tell the story of God sending Jesus to earth to redeem His people.
These selections are from the New Testament-The Gospel of John, and letters Paul the Apostle wrote to the Romans and the Hebrews.
