Summary of Passover & The Revelation of the Messiah by Pastor Don
I am so excited about last night’s Passover, Rabbi Michael and Gail Zeitler led our Passover and they shared a lot of new information which I will incorporate into my previous Passover notes and share with you, but today I am going to give you a handout that Pastor Don shared with us last night. There are so many Bible verses that, for now I am not looking them up, I will leave the reading of them up to you, but they support what Pastor Don is teaching in this handout. Pastor Don also shared some more details about these notes which I will include with the Seder notes. Hoping you have a blessed day! Heather
SUMMARY OF PASSOVER & THE REVELATION OF THE MESSIAH
For a good study, read Leviticus 23, Numbers 28 & 29, Deuteronomy 16. We celebrate three Feasts in the month of Nisan, at the barley harvest.
The Feast begins on the 10th day and on the 14th day in twilight, approximately 6 pm, the Lord’s Passover would be celebrated. Read Exodus 3-11 to see the story of God’s treatment of Moses and the battle of plagues with Pharaoh. The lamb is selected with no spot, wrinkle or blemish on the 10th day by each head of household and brought home to live with the family that examines the lamb.
In Jesus’ case He was examined Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, and then all Passover lambs on the evening of the 14th are killed in the doorway at 3 pm. Blood is placed in a basin or in the trough of the door. Blood is then placed on the sides and top of the doorposts. The family enters the house through the blood stained doorway. The lamb is killed at 3 o’clock in the afternoon. The entire lamb is roasted and the center cavity is spread open with a cross, roasted and then totally consumed. No bones are to be broken.
During the time the angel of death passes over as they have Faith that God would save them. No uncircumcised person could partake, as an outward evidence was necessary to show a covenant with God. During the temple time families brought lambs to the Temple for the sacrifice; there was great joy, praise, and celebration. The priesthood, the Levites would sing Psalms 113-118. Everyone would sing the first line, the Levites would sing the second line, and the people would shout “Hallelujah” or “Praise ye the Lord”. The peak of the celebration was Psalm 118:24 This is the day the LORD has made, We will rejoice and be glad in it.

FOR INDEED CHRIST, OUR PASSOVER WAS SACRIFICED FOR US
