What is Passover?
- The term “Passover” is often used as a generic term to refer to Passover and the Feast of Unleavened Bread, which immediately follows Passover.
- Passover is an event. Passover is not a day.
- Passover/Pesach is a sacrifice that is observed in the evening of the 14th of Abib, the first month of the Biblical New Year. This is March/April on the Gregorian calendar.
- The Hebrew term Pesach also refers to the animal victim: a sheep or goat.
- At the first Passover in Egypt, the animals were sacrificed for their blood, which was put on the doorposts identifying those who put their faith in YeHoVaH and obeyed His command.
- Yeshua was crucified by the Romans during the time the Jews were preparing their lambs and goats for the Passover meal to eat with their families.
1 Corinthians 5:7
What does Passover Commemorate?
- Passover/Pesach commemorates the deliverance of the Hebrew people from slavery in Egypt by the Mighty Hand of YeHoVaH.
- Passover commemorates the salvation of those whose home had the blood of the lamb on their doorpost.
- Passover commemorates the sacrifice of Yeshua Messiah for the sins of the world.
- Passover was set as a perpetual memorial by YeHoVaH.
What are the Commanded Instructions for Passover?
- During time of the Tabernacle, the sacrifice was made at the Tabernacle. During the time of the Temple, the sacrifice was made at the Temple.
- Today there is no Tabernacle or Temple. We are unable to sacrifice a lamb or goat, but we can eat lamb or goat as a memorial.
- Keep the Passover on the 14th Day of the first Biblical Month of Aviv or Abib (evening of 14th day going into the 15th day, which is the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread.)
- In Scripture, there is no example of how to conduct a Passover meal.
- Evening Meal elements are Lamb or Goat, Unleavened bread, Bitter herbs (Examples: Parsley, Horseradish, etc.), and wine/juice.
- Do not sacrifice within your gates. Only the Priests were to perform the sacrifices.
- We are not required to assemble. However, we assemble for the meal with our Online Community.
