God's Appointed Feasts (pt. 2)
Today's lesson is the second in our series on God's Appointed Feasts – sometimes called God's holidays.
Today's lesson focuses on the first of the seven Biblical holidays – Passover.
Passover was the central holiday in the collective consciousness of the Jewish people in the first century.
This holiday celebrates when God overthrew the Pharaoh and delivered the nation of Israel.
Many in Jesus' day longed for God to once again show up on Passover to deliver the Israelites from the oppressive rule of the Roman empire.
"God has done it in the past," they said, "and he can certainly do it again!"
It is this holiday – the Passover – that Jesus is going to the cross as the Lamb of God – God's Passover lamb.
And just like that first Passover lamb from Exodus 12 - those covered in the blood of Jesus will be set free from the tyranny of sin!
Jesus IS our Passover Lamb who was sacrificed on our behalf (1 Cor. 5:6-7).
