Our Passover Once and For All

Get rid of the old yeast, so that you may be a new unleavened batch—as you really are. For Christ, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed.

1 Corinthians 5:7

Yeshua is our Pesach! 

Wine and (unleavened) bread were always a part of Passover Seder, however Yeshua took it even deeper. He shone light on that ceremonial part of Passover and revealed its true meaning. 

After taking the cup, he gave thanks (in Hebrew: “blessed”) and said, “Take this and divide it among you.

Luke 22:17

Jesus didn’t simply give thanks, He proclaimed a traditional Hebrew prayer that we use to this day, blessing God for giving us the fruit of the vine. 

And he took (unleavened) bread, gave thanks (blessed) and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, “This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me.”

Luke 22:19

While traditionally people of Israel ate lamb during the traditional Passover Seder, Yeshua said it was the unleavened bread that represented His body, not the meat of the lamb. 

Passover Seder means “Passover order” in Hebrew, and Jesus took it and changed the order of Passover, revealing its deep significance, pointing to Himself being the fulfillment of Passover. 

Eat it and drink it…” — not only once a year during Passover, but every time you sit down to celebrate or have fellowship, do this in remembrance of Yeshua, proclaiming our covenant with the Lord. 

As believers we have the privilege to celebrate both Old Testament Pesach that speaks of God’s deliverance of His people from slavery and their exodus, while also celebrating New Testament Pesach — Yeshua, our Passover. 

In a loud voice they were saying: “Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and praise!

Revelation 5:12

God’s Passover Lamb was sacrificed for us, not once a year, but once and for all!
