This Passover Haggadah (link to the right) is a compilation from several different sources and, our own personal insights from years of celebrating Passover. We hope that by celebrating the Passover with this Haggadah, your faith in Yeshua/Jesus will be enriched and strengthened.
Yeshua is the reality in the ‘shadow’ of Passover and his last Passover seder is central to our Haggadah. From it you will learn more about your Savior, his words to his followers and this ‘appointed time’ of God.

The ‘realm of choice’ is different from the ‘realm of no choice.’ In the heavenly realm, angels are not given the choice to obey Adonai or not. They were created to be obedient servants of El Elyon –– the Most High God. However, when they entered the ‘realm of choice,’ they made choices. One group of angels left their ‘realm’ and made the choice to procreate with human women (Genesis 6:1-2). Their choice caused some angels to be bound in chains forever; the half-breeds had to be destroyed by the Hand of Elohim’s armies (Jude 6). The guardian cherub of Gan Eden entered the ‘realm of choice,’ took the form of a serpent. He chose to ‘fall’ from the heavenly realm, sin, and lose his guardian position. He deceived Chavah and she made a choice between life and death.
As the caretakers of the Cooper Landing Community Center, we were given the option of staying in the camp-lodging site through the winter. Our trailer came with an arctic package which means that all of our underbelly tanks are heated: the water, the gray, and the black. Also, parts of our underside storage units are heated keeping the area under our floors somewhat warm. So, why not try to winterize and do some very cold-weather ‘camping?’
Midrash is the Jewish term for hashing out Scripture. In other words, it is a way of finding an answer to a practical or theological question by studying the meaning of words in Torah. Midrash is used to discover halacha or how to walk out the direction of Torah commands. This method of studying the Scriptures has been used by rabbis and students of the Word of God for millennia even though it is most notably used by the Orthodox communities of the past few centuries.
