Passover (Pesach) April 22-30 2016

Passover is the 8 day observance commemorating the freedom and exodus of the Israelites (Jewish slaves) from Egypt during the reign of the Pharaoh Ramses II.

A time of family gatherings and lavish meals called Seders, the story of Passover is retold through the reading of the Haggadah. With its special foods, songs, and customs, the Seder is the focal point of the Passover celebration.

Every year we remember how the Lord saved us from bondage in Egypt, as we eat the unleavened bread and bitter herbs and recount the story of redemption in the Haggadic.  However we as Messianic Jews see this story of redemption as a prelude to how our Messiah would eventual give us freedom from the bondage of sin.

When we celebrate the Passover, we do so with eyes all pointed to Messiah. It was Messiah who said the wine at Passover represents His blood which was shed for our redemption. It was Yeshua who pointed to the Matzah and said, it was His body which was broken for and stripped for us.

The Passover story is still being told today as many Messianic Jews see their Messiah and give him thanks for saving them from their bondage.

Passover begins on the 15th day of the month of Nisan (equivalent to March and April in Gregorian calendar), the first month of the Hebrew calendar's festival year according to the Hebrew Bible.[1] In 2010 Passover is celebrated on March 29, 2010, begins ast sundown.

In commemoration, for the duration of Passover, no leavened bread is eaten, for which reason it is called "The Festival of the Unleavened Bread".[3] Matza (unleavened bread) is the primary symbol of the holiday. This bread that is flat and unrisen is called Matzo.

"In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month between the two evenings is the LORD'S Passover. And on the fifteenth day of the same month is the feast of unleavened bread unto the LORD; seven days ye shall eat unleavened bread. In the first day ye shall have a holy convocation; ye shall do no manner of servile work. And ye shall bring an offering made by fire unto the LORD seven days; in the seventh day is a holy convocation; ye shall do no manner of servile work."(Leviticus 23:5).
