The "Feast of Passover" or "Pesach" in Hebrew is a "Feast to the Lord" (Exodus 12:14), not just a Jewish holiday. This biblical Feast should be celebrated by Jew and Gentile. God commands us to celebrate this holiday forever. This Feast is directly related to and fulfilled by the Jewish Messiah, Messiah Yeshua! (Jesus Christ). John the Baptist refers to Yeshua as "The Lamb", "Behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world." (John 1:29). Celebrating Passover for over 1,500 years, thousands of Jews understood the profound meaning of this statement. Isaiah 53, written hundreds of years before Messiah Yeshua came, prophetically records the suffering the human lamb would experience for us. Isaiah. 53:7-10: "7 He was oppressed and treated harshly, yet he never said a word. He was led as a lamb to the slaughter. And as a sheep is silent before the shearer's, he did not open his mouth. 8 From prison and trial they led him away to his death. But who among the people realized that he was dying for their sins - that he was suffering their punishment? 9 He had done no wrong, and he never deceived anyone. But he was buried like a criminal; he was put in a rich man's grave. 10 But it was the LORD's good plan to crush him and fill him with grief. Yet when his life is made an offering for sin, he will have a multitude of children, many heirs. He will enjoy a long life, and the LORD's plan will prosper in his hands."
Leviticus 17:11 states: "for the life of any creature is in its blood. I have given you the blood so you can make atonement for your sins. It is the blood, representing life, that brings you atonement." There must be blood to atonement for sin, Yeshua provided that blood and was sacrificed for all our sins. God said sins cannot be forgiven without blood, praise God that through His Son, Yeshua, our sins can be forgiven and known no more. You can partake of this new blood covenant, all you have to do is ask Yeshua into your heart, accept Him as your personal savior, and God will know your sins no more! We have listed the reference scriptures first so you will understand the Biblical significance of this Feast then the Seder follows. This is just an outline of the basic Passover Seder. We encourage you to personalize this outline and make it your family tradition "In Remembrance" of Yeshua's sacrifice for the world!
