This coming Monday, April 10, 2017, begins Passover week. Why is this important to Christians? It helps us to know that this is all happening in the month of Nissan on the Jewish calendar. Nissan is the first month. It was the month where the children of Israel were protected by the blood of the lamb causing the death angel to pass over them. Then they were miraculously delivered by the Lord out of the bondage of Egypt. Jesus celebrated the feast of Passover. It was actually after the Passover meal with His disciples that He instigated what we call "The Lord's Supper." Jesus stated that the bread is His body broken for us and the wine is His blood shed for us. The Passover meal and the Lord's supper show us that we have been redeemed out of the hand of the enemy(Satan) and set free!
Jesus IS our Passover lamb. He is also the Lion from the tribe of Judah. Celebrate as we honor the Lion and the Lamb this coming week!
