To gain the most from our study of God’s Word, we need to realize that God often communicates in pictures and word pictures. This is especially true of one of the most significant events of God’s plan, the annual Passover observance. Passover is rich with pictures and symbols—the slain lambs, the blood splashed on the doorways of the Israelite homes in Egypt, the bread and wine of the Passover service, and the act of footwashing. Yet the Bible contains other rich pictures that add greatly to our understanding of Passover and Jesus Christ’s sacrifice that together paint an astounding picture of the love of God the Father and Jesus Christ for us and Their faithfulness to bring about the reconciliation of God and mankind. Listen in as we explore some of these rich pictures and their significance for us today.
