There is no Jewish festival that has more meaning and symbolism than Pesach (Passover). The seder (service) reminds us of the events leading up to the exodus from Egypt and God's intervention on behalf of our ancestors. The meal includes bitter herbs which graphically depict our slavery. The charoset (apple-nut mixture) speaks of the sweetness of our redemption. The shankbone of the lamb, the central element of the seder meal, explains the reason for the holy day. As God was about to send the angel of death throughout Egypt, he proclaimed that there would be deliverance for every household which had the blood of the perfect lamb applied to its doorpost. Upon seeing the blood of the sacrifice, God would pesach (pass over) that house and not allow the death of the firstborn son (Exodus 12:13).

Pesach is not just about the history of our people. It is also about God's plan of redemption for all nations. What a perfect picture of the death of Messiah on our behalf! Yeshua—the perfect lamb of God—died to take away the sin of the world (John 1:29). By faith, we have applied the blood of his sacrifice to the door of our lives, and God must pass over us! It is not by works of righteousness but only by the free gift of the Father.

Let us rejoice in our two-fold deliverance: from physical death in Egypt and from spiritual death in eternity. For Messianic Jews, Passover becomes a double blessing!

...meditate on all that God did to deliver me at Pesach.
