Passover Meal

Exodus 12:1–6 ESV
The Lord said to Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt, “This month shall be for you the beginning of months. It shall be the first month of the year for you. Tell all the congregation of Israel that on the tenth day of this month every man shall take a lamb according to their fathers’ houses, a lamb for a household. And if the household is too small for a lamb, then he and his nearest neighbor shall take according to the number of persons; according to what each can eat you shall make your count for the lamb. Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male a year old. You may take it from the sheep or from the goats, and you shall keep it until the fourteenth day of this month, when the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill their lambs at twilight.
Changed the calendar for them. Nisan/Abib is now the first month of the year (religious calendar)
Lamb is Male
Lamb is w/o blemish
Lamb is taken on the 10th and slain on the 14th
Exodus 12:7–13 ESV
“Then they shall take some of the blood and put it on the two doorposts and the lintel of the houses in which they eat it. They shall eat the flesh that night, roasted on the fire; with unleavened bread and bitter herbs they shall eat it. Do not eat any of it raw or boiled in water, but roasted, its head with its legs and its inner parts. And you shall let none of it remain until the morning; anything that remains until the morning you shall burn. In this manner you shall eat it: with your belt fastened, your sandals on your feet, and your staff in your hand. And you shall eat it in haste. It is the Lord’s Passover. For I will pass through the land of Egypt that night, and I will strike all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and on all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgments: I am the Lord. The blood shall be a sign for you, on the houses where you are. And when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and no plague will befall you to destroy you, when I strike the land of Egypt.
Blood covers the door post. God’s wrath is averted (v13 I will pass over you)
Done in haste, bread is unleavened, lamb is roasted over fire (no bones broken)
Done with expectation. This was before their freedom but they ate with their sandals on, belt fastened, and staff in hand.
Blood of lamb covered God’s wrath
People showed Faith in God and his provision
God offered freedom from bondage for those that had faith in Him
Pass out bread

Passover Lamb foreshadows Christ

Matthew 26:26–29 ESV
Now as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and after blessing it broke it and gave it to the disciples, and said, “Take, eat; this is my body.” And he took a cup, and when he had given thanks he gave it to them, saying, “Drink of it, all of you, for this is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins. I tell you I will not drink again of this fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father’s kingdom.”
Notes: Jesus is showing that the blood and the body of the lamb are representative of HIS body and blood.
His blood covers God’s wrath
We have faith that he is our savior and we will be with him in his kingdom
We have freedom from the bondage of sin and can live in joyous relationship with our king
Warning 1 Corinthians 11:27-29
1 Corinthians 11:27–29 ESV
Whoever, therefore, eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty concerning the body and blood of the Lord. Let a person examine himself, then, and so eat of the bread and drink of the cup. For anyone who eats and drinks without discerning the body eats and drinks judgment on himself.
Notes: Solemn Occasion
Eat Bread, pray, wine, pray
