The spring holy days look back to historical events that are to teach us important spiritual lessons. But when we look closely at some of the details questions arise about the correct timing of the Passover. In this sermon Mr. Smith looks at the issue of whether the passover was eaten on the night of the 14th or on the night of the 15th day of the first month as most Jews keep it today.
Gary Smith was born in Charlotte, North Carolina, but spent most of his youth in the Pasadena, California area. He graduated from Ambassador College in 1976 and he and his wife, Liz, moved to Peoria, Illinois. For the next six years he worked as a nursing home administrator in Illinois, Ohio, and Texas.
In 1982, he and Liz began to serve in the full-time ministry. Since that time, they have served in a number of congregations in the Midwest.
