Jews for Jesus-Christ in the Passover

March 22, 2010

This past Sunday, we were honored to have Dan from Jews from Jesus come and share with us in the Sunday morning service. For all those that braved the winter weather, it was truly a blessing!

Our very own Phil Blount led our worship service to fill in for Kyle while he is in Spain. It’s always so nice to have Phil! Worship was incredible!

Then Dan came to walk us through the traditional Jewish Passover. He read the traditional scriptures first:

“Now the blood shall be a sign for you on the houses where you are. And when I see the blood, I will pass over you…So this day shall be to you a memorial; and you shall keep it as a feast to the Lord throughout your generations.” Exodus 12:13-14

…with the added verse proclaiming Jesus Christ as the Passover sacrifice for sins:

For indeed Christ, our Passover, was sacrificed for us. Therefore let us keep the feast…” 1 Corinthians 5:7-8

Then he walked us through the traditional Passover feast and explained how Christ is represented in each item.

The 4 cups representing our sanctification, the 10 plagues/judgement, our redemption/blessing, and praise (though, some traditions call it the cup of acceptance, we like PRAISE better)

The Seder plate and the order of the Passover service: Chagigah-roasted egg (rebirth), Charoset-mixture of apples, cinnamon and nuts representing mortar, Chazeret-the bitter root (horseradish), karpas-greens, Maror-ground bitter herb, Z’roah-shankbone of a lamb with the cup of salt water representing tears.

This service was INCREDIBLE and I encourage you, if you missed it, to listen to the sermon (located on the Sermon page up top). It was beautiful! And I was so blessed to have experienced it!
