Why is this night different from all other nights? Share in the Passover Seder and discover the answer.
Passover is the first of the spring holidays and celebrated on the 14th day of Nisan. The word Passover, Pesach in Hebrew, means to “pass” or to “hover over.”
In the book of the Exodus, the Bible tells that God delivered the Children of Israel from slavery in Egypt by inflicting ten plagues upon the Egyptians before the Pharaoh would release the Israelite slaves. The tenth and worst of the plagues was the death of the first-born throughout the land. The Israelites were instructed to mark the doorposts of their homes with the blood of a lamb and, so therefore Adonai would pass over the first-born in these homes.
At the commandment of Adonai in Sh’mot (Exodus) 12:15, for the duration of the feast no leavened bread is eaten, therefore the week that immediately follows is called “The Feast of the Unleavened Bread”. Matzoh (flat unleavened bread) is a symbol of the holiday.
The story does not end there. The Passover story picks up in each of the gospel accounts. Mattityahu (Matthew) 26, Mark 14, Luke 22 and Yochanan (John) chapters 13 through 17 all record the various observations of the Passover. We also know this as The Last Supper.
Join us for a wonderful evening of music, traditions and dinner. The teaching by Rabbi Amnon Shor will weave each part together pointing us to the One who fulfills this feast in every detail, our Messiah Yeshua (Jesus).
