The Passover, Crucifixion, and Resurrection

The Passover is a biblically derived historical event; Jews celebrate it as a commemoration of their liberation by God from slavery in ancient Egypt, and their freedom as a nation under the leadership of Moses. The Jewish tradition is to celebrate Passover as a seven-day holiday of the Feast of Unleavened Bread.

The Crucifixion and Resurrection are also biblically derived historical events; Christians celebrate them as a commemoration of their liberation by God from the bondage of Sin, and their freedom as heirs to the promise by way of the Passion of Jesus. The Christian tradition is to celebrate the Passion of Christ: the seven-day period that took place between Palm Sunday and Easter (AKA Resurrection Sunday), which includes the Passover Feast known as The Last Supper: observed as the basis for the Eucharist (Holy communion). Resurrection Sunday, is a culmination of the Passion of Jesus.

The Old Testament Law

“The animals you choose must be year-old males without defect, and you may take them from the sheep or the goats.Then they are to take some of the blood and put it on the sides and tops of the door frames of the houses where they eat the lambs. On that same night I will pass through Egypt and strike down every firstborn of both people and animals, and I will bring judgment on all the gods of Egypt. I am the Lord. The blood will be a sign for you on the houses where you are, and when I see the blood, I will pass over you. No destructive plague will touch you when I strike Egypt (Exodus 12:5, 7, 12, 13).

A Shadow of Good Things to Come

"For the law having a shadow of good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with those sacrifices which they offered year by year continually make the comers thereunto perfect. For then would they not have ceased to be offered? because that the worshipers once purged should have had no more conscience of sins. But in those sacrifices there is a remembrance again made of sins every year. For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins. Wherefore when he (Jesus) come into the world, he saith, Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not, but a body hast thou prepared me (Hebrews 10:1-5).

The New Testament Grace

"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believe in him should not perish, but have everlasting life (John 3:16). 

And he took bread, and gave thanks, and brake it, and gave unto them, saying, This is my body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of me. Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood, which is shed for you (Luke 22:19-20)

"And when they were come to the place, which is called Calvary, there they crucified him, and the malefactors, one on the right hand, and the other on the left. Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. And they parted his raiment, and cast lots. And when Jesus had cried with a loud voice, he said, Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit: and having said thus, he gave up the ghost.  (Luke 23:33,34, 46). 

God The Same Yesterday, Today, and Forever

"There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all (Ephesians 4:4-6)."For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified. Whereof the Holy Ghost also is a witness to us: for after that he had said before, This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them; And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more. Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin (Hebrews 10:14-18). 

It Is Finished

"And they found the stonerolled away from the sepulchre. He is not here, but is risen: remember how He spoke unto you when He was yet in Galilee (Luke 24:2,6).

One Lord, One Faith, One Baptism. The Blood Of Jesus Will Never Lose Its Power
