What is Passover?
This holiday commemorates the departure of the nation of Israel from Egypt. Pesach marks the birth of the Jewish people as a nation led by Moshe (Moses) over 3000 years ago. This is as much a celebration of our spiritual freedom as the physical liberation from slavery. The highlight of Pesach is the observance of the Seder, a unique ceremony performed on the first two evenings of Passover. At the Seder, we eat different special foods, we tell the story of our departure from Egypt, we sing songs and praises, and say special prayers.
Pesach (Passover) begins on the night of the fifteenth day of the month of Nissan (Saturday 27th March 2021) and lasts for eight days.
We encourage you to invite a small group of friends/family/neighbours, while maintaining all the necessary protocols.
Even more importantly, it is a memorial of the final meal that our Master Yeshua shared with his disciples.
When the hour came, Yeshua reclined at table, and the emissaries with Him. And He said to them, "I have eagerly desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer. For I tell you, I will never eat it again until it is fulfilled in the kingdom of God."
And when He had taken matzah and offered the bracha, He broke it and gave it to them, saying, "This is My body, given for you. Do this in memory of Me." In the same way, He took the cup after the meal, saying, "This cup is the new covenant in My blood, which is poured out for you.
The Passover seder is also the memorial meal of the new covenant in the Messiah, and after the Passover meal, we will take the Afikomen matzoh and the third cup of wine – the cup of redemption – and we will celebrate all that Yeshua has made possible on our behalf.
