Christ our Passover lamb

375 christ our passahlamm"For our Passover lamb has been slaughtered for us: Christ" (1, cor. 5,7).

We do not want to miss the great event that took place in Egypt nearly 4000 years ago, when God freed Israel from slavery, or overlooked it. Ten plagues in 2. Moses were needed to shake Pharaoh in his stubbornness, arrogance and in his arrogant opposition to God.

The Passover was the final and final plague, so terrible that all firstborn, both human and cattle, was killed when the LORD passed by. God spared the obedient Israelites when they were ordered to kill the lamb on the 14 day of the month of Abib and paint the blood on the top sill and on the door jambs. (See 2, Moses 12). In verse 11, it is called the Passover of the Lord.

Many have forgotten the Passover of the Old Testament, but God reminds His people that Jesus, our Passover, was prepared as the Lamb of God to take away the sins of the world. (John 1,29). He died on the cross after his body was ripped and tortured by a lash and a spear pierced his side and blood ran out. All this he endured, as it was prophesied.

He left us an example. At his last Passover, which we now refer to as the Lord's Supper, he taught his disciples to wash one another's feet as an example of humility. In memory of his death, he gave them bread and a little wine to symbolically share in the eating of his flesh and in the drinking of his blood (1, Corinthians 11,23-26, John 6,53-59 and John 13,14-17). In Egypt, when the Israelites struck the blood of the Lamb on the top threshold and on the door jambs, it was a foreknowledge of the blood of Jesus in the New Testament that was blown upon the doors of our hearts, to cleanse our conscience, and through all our sins His blood would be cleansed (Hebrews 9,14 and 1, John 1,7). The reward of sin is death, but the priceless gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. In the Lord's Supper we remember the death of our Redeemer so that we do not forget the painful and very shameful death on the cross that took place because of our sins before 2000 years ago.

The beloved Son, whom God the Father sent as the Lamb of God to pay the ransom for us, is one of the greatest gifts to the people. We did not deserve this grace, but God has chosen us by His grace to give us eternal life through His beloved Son, Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ, our Passover, died willingly to save us. We read in Hebrews 12,1-2 "That's why we too, having such a big cloud of witnesses around us, let's put down everything that complains about us, and the sin that constantly surrounds us, and let us walk with patience in the Fight that is destined for us, and look up to Jesus, the beginner and finisher of the faith, who, although he could have had joy, endured the cross, and disregarded the shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
