From BibleWiki

  1. Heb. kebes, a male lamb from the first to the third year. Offered daily at the morning and the evening sacrifice (Ex 29:38-42), on the Sabbath day (Num 28:9), at the feast of the New Moon (28:11), of Trumpets (29:2), of Tabernacles (13-40), of Pentecost (Lev 23:18-20), and of the Passover (Ex 12:5), and on many other occasions (1Chr 29:21; 2Chr 29:21; Lev 9:3; 14:10-25).
  2. Heb. taleh, a young sucking lamb (1Sam 7:9; Isa 65:25). In the symbolical language of Scripture the lamb is the type of meekness and innocence (Isa 11:6; 65:25; Lk 10:3; Jn 21:15).

The lamb was a symbol of Christ (Gen 4:4; Ex 12:3; 29:38; Isa 16:1; 53:7; Jn 1:36; Rev 13:8).

Christ is called the Lamb of God (Jn 1:29, 36), as the great sacrifice of which the former sacrifices were only types (Num 6:12; Lev 14:12-17; Isa 53:7; 1Cor 5:7).
