On the first day of unleavened bread, Mr. Smith addressed the meaning of these days to Israel's exit from Egypt. In this sermon he focuses on the meaning of unleavened bread relating to spiritual Israel. He takes many aspects of Israel's exodus form Egypt and using New Testament passages shows us that the spiritual meaning of each aspect relates to God's bringing each of us individually out of this world and into his church.
