Should Christians celebrate Passover?
It’s time to UNLEARN the lies. UNLEARN Hey, welcome to UNLEARN. My name is Lex, and
I’d like to invite you to join us each week as we search out Biblical truth together and
UNLEARN the lies we have inherited. Now, let’s get started. If Yeshua is our Passover, are we still expected
to celebrate the Passover or has it been done away with? Listen to what Paul had to say
about it. “…For also Messiah our Pesach was slaughtered
for us. So then let us celebrate the festival, not with old leaven, nor with the leaven of
evil and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.”
– 1 Corinthians 5:7-8 Now, consider also that at the last Passover
that Yeshua ate with His disciples, His instructions were to do it in remembrance of Him. “And He sent Kepha and Yoḥanan, saying,
“Go and prepare the Pesach for us to eat.” And they said to Him, “Where do You wish
us to prepare?” And He said to them, “See, as you enter into the city, a man shall meet
you carrying a jar of water. Follow him into the house he enters. And you shall say to
the master of the house, ‘The Teacher says to you, Where is the guest room where I might
eat the Pesach with My taught ones?”’ And he shall show you a large, furnished upper
room. Prepare it there. And going they found it as He had said to them, and they prepared
the Pesach. And when the hour had come, He sat down, and the twelve emissaries with Him.
And He said to them, “With desire I have desired to eat this Pesach with you before
My suffering, for I say to you, I shall certainly not eat of it again until it is filled in
the reign of Elohim.” And taking the cup, giving thanks, He said, “Take this and divide
it among yourselves, for I say to you, I shall certainly not drink of the fruit of the vine
until the reign of Elohim comes.” And taking bread, giving thanks, He broke it and gave
it to them, saying, “This is My body which is given for you, do this in remembrance of
Me.” Likewise the cup also, after supper, saying, “This cup is the renewed covenant
in My blood which is shed for you.” – Luke 22:8-20 Passover is a memorial, and a memorial is
an annual event. Passover commemorates our salvation from bondage. It’s a reminder of
the salvation of Israel from Egypt as well as the salvation from sin through Yeshua.
We are commanded in both the Old and New Testaments to keep Passover as a memorial, to remember
who saved us from our bondage. “And this day shall become to you a remembrance.
And you shall celebrate it as a festival to Yahweh throughout your generations – celebrate
it as a festival, an everlasting law.” – Exodus 12:14 Should Christians celebrate Passover? Absolutely.
Passover is fundamental to Christian faith. Yeshua is our Passover Lamb and we should
keep the Feast in remembrance of His sacrifice. Share the truth
