During one of our family Shabbat studies, my daughter asked, “Why do some churches for communion drink wine first and then give you bread while others offer the bread first and then drink the wine?” What a powerful question from an eight-year-old child. We wanted to answer her question honestly so we read Luke 22 and the account of Yeshua and ‘communion.’
Pesach is to be celebrated throughout all the generations of the people of Israel wherever they lived. In Joshua chapter 5, the Israelites celebrate Pesach in Gilgal after taking flint knives and circumcising all the men who had come out of the wilderness. In 2 Kings chapter 23, King Josiah destroys all the high places and idols in Israel, and the nation celebrates Pesach in Jerusalem for the first time since the days of the Judges. In Ezra chapter 6, when the Israelites return from captivity in Babylon, everyone who renounced the pagan practices of the nations celebrated the Pesach.
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.
