While Passover is now drawing to a close in Israel, the last day of Passover is just beginning in the Diaspora (Jews living outside Israel celebrate Pesach for 8 days). Unlike the first 7 days of Passover, the eighth day looks forward to a future redemption rather than back to a past redemption. From Redemption in Egypt to Final Redemption in the Messianic Era. The Exodus from Egypt marked a new beginning for the Israelites—the birthing of their nation. But theirs was no ordinary nation, for when they stepped out of Egypt, they stepped into a Divine call and destiny. God Himself would guide them so that their Divine call and destiny would be fulfilled: to be a holy nation and kingdom of priests holding out to the other nations the Torah and Light of the World.

The Eighth Day of Pesach/Passover
Deut 14:22-16:17; Isa 10:32-12:6; John 20:15-20
A MESSIANIC JEWISH CELEBRATION OF KING MESSIAH
While all of Passover points to future redemption, the eighth day of Passover is distinguished by focusing on the Messianic redemption. So much so that the final meal at the end of the Eighth day is called the Feast of the Messiah. The redemption that Messiah brings will be a complete redemption in which Israel will no longer be in exile. This special meal is known as
Seudat HaMashiach - The Wedding Supper of the Lamb
