Feast of Passover/Pesach

 

In the fourteenth day of the first month at even is the LORD’S passover.

 

 

LESSON

 

The Passover was the most important feast. It commemorated God’s deliverance of Israel from Egyptian slavery by a powerful supernatural act and His preparation of the nation for adoption as His special treasure. The Israelites were not permitted to do any “laborious work” on this day, which allowed food to be cooked. Jesus died as the Paschal Lamb on Passover in the year He died for our sins. The Passover was primarily a time when Israel commemorated the Lord’s deliverance from bondage in Egypt.

Likewise our worship should include a commemoration of our past salvation from the bondage of sin. Passover was one of the three feasts that all the adult males in Israel had to attend along with the feasts of Firstfruits and Tabernacles. It was a holy convocation or gathering together of the nation around the sanctuary.
