The celebration of Passover began over 3,000 years ago, but the truth that it taught is something that can never be forgotten. We invite you to learn about Passover and celebrate together April 8-16 this year.
Passover began when God delivered the Israelites from slavery in Egypt. In Exodus 12:12-14, we read:
“For I will pass through the land of Egypt this night, and will smite all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgment: I am the LORD.”
“And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt.”
“And this day shall be unto you for a memorial; and ye shall keep it a feast to the LORD throughout your generations; ye shall keep it a feast by an ordinance for ever.”
Around 1,000 years later, John the Baptist, speaking of Jesus, said, “Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.”
Paul later explains in his letter to the Corinthians:
“Clean out the old leaven so that you may be a new lump, just as you are in fact unleavened. For Christ our Passover also has been sacrificed.”
“Therefore let us celebrate the feast, not with old leaven, nor with the leaven of malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.”
(I Corinthians 5:7-8)
God used the blood of the Passover lamb to remind His people of their deliverance from Egypt. Later, Jesus Himself would become the sacrifice that was needed. He alone can free each of us from hopelessly serving our sinful selves and being forever lost without God.
