Passover

Passover 2014 - April 14, 2014 (observed evening before)

"For indeed Christ, our Passover, was sacrificed for us" (1 Corinthians 5:7).

Keeping the Passover each year reminds us that God is the forgiver of sin who grants us eternal life in His Kingdom through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ, our Passover. This observance is a memorial of our Creator's continuing role in humanity's salvation.

A gunman killed three people at a Jewish Community Center in Kansas City yesterday; we are again reminded of how a peaceful moment can turn into a terrible moment of death. The suspected gunman is a known anti-Semitic. He apparently picked this place to vent his seething rage. It is a terrible reminder of a dark mood that resides within our world—waiting to emerge in it's full fury.

A piece of cake on a plate with a fork.

As we prepare for Passover and the Days of Unleavened Bread, people usually ask about products that contain leavening. I thought I'd post a blog with a bit of information to help.

10 Days to Passover - The Last Day Before Passover

It’s the last day before Passover, which begins at sundown tonight. In His day, Jesus, knowing that His hour had come, and that He would be delivered into the hands of the Romans to be killed, gave His disciples the lasting, unforgettable ceremony of the New Covenant Passover. The whole story of what happened during the supper He had with His disciples goes from John 13-18, but the first sentence of John 13 is what we will focus on:

10 Days to Passover - Day 2

It isn’t clear or specific what happened on this day, two days leading up to Jesus’ final Passover, from the Bible. That being said, there is an event that could have possibly taken place on this day, and which we can draw a lesson from nonetheless.

10 Days to Passover - Day 3

Instead of going back to Bethany to stay the night after the lengthy preaching and Olivet Prophecy, Jesus probably stayed on the Mount of Olives overnight. The next day is recorded in Matthew 26:1-5, Mark 14:1-2 and 10-11, and Luke 22:1-6, where we will read what happened:

Holidays or Holy Days: Does It Matter Which Days We Observe?

Many people are shocked to discover the origins of our most popular religious holidays.

Easter: The Rest of the Story

Easter: The Rest of the Story

Many believing Christians celebrate Easter as a way to honor Jesus Christ's resurrection. But Easter is a day with very different roots—stretching long ago into pre-Christian paganism. The Bible alone has the truth of Jesus' life, death and resurrection, and it shows a different set of celebrations—the Passover and Days of Unleavened Bread—that give us the real story that Easter doesn't tell us.
