Jesus, Our Sacrificial Lamb
Passover was instituted to commemorate the saving of the Hebrew firstborn in Egypt at the time when God, smiting with death the firstborn of the Egyptians, passed over the houses of the Jews, which were marked with the blood of a lamb. [Exodus 12:17, 24-30 KJV And ye shall observe the feast of unleavened bread; for in this selfsame day have I brought your armies (crowds of people) out of the land of Egypt: therefore shall ye observe this day in your generations by an ordinance for ever. And ye shall observe this thing for an ordinance to thee and to thy sons for ever. And it shall come to pass, when ye be come to the land which the Lord will give you, according as he hath promised, that ye shall keep this service. And it shall come to pass, when your children shall say unto you, What mean ye by this service? That ye shall say, It is the sacrifice of the Lord’s Passover, who passed over the houses of the children of Israel in Egypt, when he smote the Egyptians, and delivered our houses. And the people bowed the head and worshipped. And the children of Israel went away, and did as the Lord had commanded Moses and Aaron, so did they. And it came to pass, that at midnight the Lord smote all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn of Pharaoh that sat on his throne unto the firstborn of the captive that was in the dungeon; and all the firstborn of cattle. And Pharaoh rose up in the night, he, and all his servants, and all the Egyptians; and there was a great cry in Egypt; for there was not a house where there was not one dead. ] Pharaoh let the Jews leave Egypt. Then he went back on his word and went after them to bring them back to Egypt. God parted the Red Sea and allowed the Jews to pass through on dry ground. But when the Egyptians followed God allowed the water to crash down on the Egyptians and kill them.
The son of the one true God, Jesus Christ, celebrated the Passover until he himself became the paschal lamb. To the Christian(believer), Passover sets forth the great fact and consequences of the sacrifice of God’s only begotten son, Jesus Christ, in the shedding of his blood for the remission of our sins that we may have eternal life with him in heaven. [I Corinthians 5:7-8 KJV Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our Passover is sacrificed for us: Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth. ]
In the book of John we read how God made everlasting life possible for us who believe. [John 3:16 KJV For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. ] To become a believer you need only to do what is written in the book of Romans in the Holy Bible.[ Romans 8:8-13 KJV But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach; That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shalt be saved.
John 14:26 KJV of The Holy Bible But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
