What is Passover? 

“And this day shall become a memorial for you, and you shall observe it as a festival for the LORD, for your generations, as an eternal decree shall you observe it. For seven days you shall eat unleavened bread, but on the first day you shall remove the leaven from your homes … you shall guard the unleavened bread, because on this very day I will take you out of the land of Egypt; you shall observe this day for your generations as an eternal decree.” –Exodus 12:14-17

Passover is one of the most commonly observed Jewish holidays and we celebrate it because it is a Feast of the Lord. The name Passover comes from Pesach which means “to pass over,” referring to Exodus Ch. 1-15 when God passed over the children of Israel to spare them from death. This festival begins on the 15th day of the Jewish month of Nissan. Agriculturally, it represents the beginning of the harvest season in Israel, but little attention is paid to this aspect of the holiday. The primary observances of Pesach are related to the Exodus of the Israelites from their slavery in Egypt after many generations of bondage. Many of the Passover observances and traditions are instituted in Chapters 12-15.

“Pesach” is also the name of the sacrificial offering of a lamb that was made in the Temple on this holiday, though we no longer observe this command because God sent Jesus to take the place of that sacrificial offering. That means we are now coming together to obey the instructions God gave us in his Word to celebrate the deliverance of Israel and especially to commemorate the fulfillment of the scriptures in the Lamb of God who is Jesus our Redeemer.
