Will you be celebrating or recognizing Passover this year in your home?
The Biblical feast of Passover is a celebration of God’s protection and provision for the nation of Israel over 3,000 years ago.
Passover is one of the most prominent biblical feasts still practiced today by many.
Even non-Jewish Christians have been able to take part in this tradition of the Jewish people, of which Jesus must have also take part. That is pretty cool.
This post provides a list of typical meals of the Passover and the recipes you make during a celebration of the Passover biblical feast.
You will find recipes for:
- The Matzah – unleavened bread (bread made without yeast). Because the Israelites were to leave Egypt in a hurry once they were released, they did not have time to allow their bread to rise.
- The Lamb Shank – the Passover lamb that was sacrificed was then prepared as part of the meal. The lamb represents Christ, who was the final and perfect sacrifice to release us from the bonds of sin.
- The Egg – an egg represents the sacrifices made at the Temple.
- Salt Water – to represent the tears of the Israelites during their enslavement in Egypt.
- Haroset – a sweet mixture with apples and nuts to represent the mortar used by the Israelites in Egypt.
- Horseradish – bitter herbs to represent the bitterness of slavery.
- Grape Juice – this is consumed to remind us of God’s promise that His people would be freed.
Discussing with your children the meaning of this biblical feast can truly help you all learn more about God’s love and strength.
