The church described in the New Testament ate Unleavened Bread during the seven days of Unleavened Bread. In 1 Corinthians 16:1-8 the Church is shown working on Sunday, and Paul is spending the winter in Ephesus and beyond until Pentecost (thus including the Days of Unleavened Bread). In 1 Corinthians 5:1-8 the Corinthian congregation is described as observing the Days of Unleavened Bread. While physically keeping these days, there are great spiritual lessons for us to learn.
