“Why is this night different from all other nights?”
One of the most significant Jewish holidays, Passover, or Pesach in Hebrew, recalls and rejoices over the Israelites’ redemption from slavery in Egypt. The symbolic elements of the feast cause us not only to look back and remember what the Lord did for our people in the past; they also foreshadow a greater redemption through Jesus, the Passover Lamb.
What’s commonly called “The Last Supper” was a Passover Seder that occurred shortly before Yeshua’s (Jesus’) death. After the Exodus, The Last Supper was the most famous Seder in all of Jewish history. Yeshua explained at that meal, “this cup of wine is my blood which I will shed for sin, and this matzo, this bread, is my body.” His sacrificial death that occurred the following day was foreshadowed at that table. To better understand how Jesus’ suffering is on our behalf, we invite you to watch our video, That Jew Died For You.
If you don’t yet believe that Jesus is the Messiah and Lamb of God, why not review some of the extras at ThatJewDiedForYou.com. Alternatively, you might read this article on “Easterphobia” about Jesus and history of the church in Jewish culture.
You are also welcome to attend one of our passover seders in your area.
