What is a Passover Seder?
The scene for God's redemptive plan for our world is set when the Lord parts the Red Sea and Moses leads the Israelites into the Promised Land.
Passover is a celebrated memorial to the book of Exodus and God's faithfulness to the Jewish people.
For thousands of years, the Jewish people have come together each year around the seder table. Through taste, teaching, song and prayer, we remember and re-experience the Exodus - the history of our salvation.
"The Last Supper"
It was during this time at a small Passover Seder in Jerusalem where Yeshua (Jesus) sat with His disciples for His last meal before His impending death.
It was here that He took matzah, the bread of both our affliction and deliverance, broke it and passed it around to His disciples. "Tonight" he said, "this is my body, broken for you. Tonight I am your deliverance." And it was here that He took the wine, symbolizing the redemption of the Jewish people, and infused it with new meaning; "This cup is the new covenant in my blood which is poured out for you." (Luke 22:19-20)
Just as the blood of the slain lamb smeared on the doorposts of the ancient Israelite homes covered them from the death of the firstborn, so too the blood of the slain lamb, Yeshua covers us all from death and brings us into His resurrection and life.
