AGNETS – (Sl. lamb) The sacrificial lamb in the Old Testament. Symbolically Christ was called the “Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world” (JOHN 1:29). Accordingly, in the Orthodox Church, the name Agnets is attributed to our Lord Jesus Christ in the Sacrament of the Eucharist, and that part of the holy bread is called Agnets which is taken out of the prosphora and is designated for the mystical change into the Body of our Lord Jesus Christ.
