Passover, called Pesach in Hebrew, ushers in the spring feasts. There are three feasts: Passover, The Feast of Unleavened Bread, and the Feast of Firstfruits. On the Jewish religious calendar Passover begins on 14th day of the first month, the month of Nisan. Adonai ordains it in Exodus 12:2,

“This month shall be your beginning of months; it shall be the first month of the year to you.”

Adonai further instructs that on the tenth of the month every man will choose a one-year-old male lamb or goat that is without any defects. For four days, they will take special care of the chosen animal. Then on the 14th of the month, they will kill it at twilight, that is, when the sun has just set. They are then to take hyssop and put some of the blood on the two doorposts and lintel of their homes. Then they will roast the whole lamb, including its head and entrails and eat the roasted lamb with unleavened bread and bitter herbs. They will also eat it in a hurry, wearing their belt and sandals, and their staff in their hand. Additionally, Exodus 12:46 tells us that,

In one house it shall be eaten; you shall not carry any of the flesh outside the house, nor shall you break one of its bones.

Whatever is left the next morning they will burn. It is Adonai’s Pesach.

Adonai says He will pass through Egypt that night and will strike all the firstborn, man and beast, and will execute judgment against the gods of Egypt. This day will be an everlasting memorial and will be kept as a feast.

We celebrate Pesach at Bet Shalom Messianic Assembly with a Messianic Passover Seder Dinner. We hope you join us!
