“Why is this night different from all other nights?”
One of the most significant Jewish holidays, Passover, or Pesach in Hebrew, recalls and rejoices over the Israelites’ redemption from slavery in Egypt. The symbolic elements of the feast cause us not only to look back and remember what the Lord did for our people in the past; they also foreshadow a greater redemption through Jesus, the Passover Lamb. Jewish people around the world have celebrated Passover for thousands of years; however, most do not understand the ultimate significance of the festival. In this section, you’ll find several articles and explanations of the meaning of this traditional Jewish feast that Jesus celebrated with his disciples. If you already believe that Jesus is the Lamb of God, you may become inspired to have Jews for Jesus share a “Christ in the Passover” program at your congregation, have your own Passover Seder meal at home and share the true meaning of Passover with Jewish people you know.
