A Passover message
from Dr. Mitch Glaser:
Passover celebrates God’s redemption of His people from slavery in Egypt. However, it points to a greater redemption for Israel and for all mankind.
The Last Supper was itself part of a celebration of Passover. Knowing that He would be put to death in a few hours, Jesus told His disciples, “I eagerly desired to celebrate this Passover with you before I suffer” (Luke 22:15). At this celebration, He took elements of the Passover (the unleavened bread and the cup) and identified them as His body and blood, symbolizing His death.
Other elements of the Passover are important symbols as well. The shank bone of the lamb points to the Lamb of God (John 1:29). Indeed, Jesus is the Passover Lamb. Paul tells us that as often as we eat this bread and drink of this cup (elements of the Passover and the heart of the Last Supper or Communion), we proclaim the Lord’s death until He comes (1 Corinthians 11:26).
