Christ, Our Passover Lamb

Joined by our teammates Tim & Michelle O’Brien and their four children, Jason, Kristin, and Justin, Jenny, Ivan, Chloe, and Isaac, and Beth Hanna we celebrated Resurrection Sunday with a semblance of a Messianic Passover Seder meal.  We’ve never participated in one before and have never observed one either.  

We followed a script, and we used whatever ingredients we could locate that would closely approximate the items from both an OT description as well as a traditional Jewish perspective.  I doubt we came too close to either one, but the symbolism was interesting.  The Scriptures read and alluded to were what really made the experience special.  Seeing Christ as our Passover Lamb and the One to whom the ancient Passover meal looked forward to and also the One who we remember and on whom we reflect as the fulfillment of Passover, not just for the Jewish nation but for all of us who call upon His name.
Beth did find a large leg of lamb in the market which was neat.  We followed the little symbolic ceremony with a larger meal.  Some really liked like the lamb but others deferred to chicken.  The foods were not what were important, but the worship from the heart and the honoring of our lovely Savior.
Christ is risen!  He is risen indeed!

Shhh!  Don’t tell anyone what we did with the lamb bone!
