PASSOVER

<MEANINGS 1>


(Pesach): Feasting For Freedom

And ye shall observe this thing [Passover] for an ordinance to thee and to thy sons for ever:.. And it shall come to pass, when your children shall say unto you, What mean ye by this service? that ye shall say, It is the sacrifice of the Lord ‘s Passover, who passed over the houses of the children of Israel in Egypt… (Exodus [Shemot] 12:24,26-27).

Understanding the Passover (Pesach) Season

G-d declared Passover (Pesach) to be a permanent celebration for all eternity (Exodus [Shemot] 12:2,6,13-14). Historically, Passover (Pesach) celebrates G-d’s deliverance of the children of Israel from bondage in Egypt (Mitzrayim), where they were slaves to the Egyptians (Exodus [Shemot] 2:23-24; 6:5-8; 13:3,14).

The spiritual application that G-d wants us to understand is this: Egypt (Mitzrayim) is a type of the world and the world’s system. Its ruler, Pharaoh, was a type of satan (Ha satan). The bondage people are in when they live according to the ways of the world’s system is sin (John [Yochanan] 8:34).

Historically, the children of Israel were delivered from the bondage in Egypt (Mitzrayim) by putting the blood of a lamb upon the doorposts of their houses (Exodus [Shemot] 12:2,6,13). Spiritually, this is a picture of the Messiah Yeshua and how those who believe in Him are delivered from the bondages of sin and the rule of satan (Ha satan) in their lives. Yeshua is the Lamb of G-d (John [Yochanan] 1:29). Yeshua is also our Passover (Pesach) (1 Corinthians 5:7). Those who followYeshua are the house of G-d (Hebrews 3:6; 1 Peter [Kefa] 2:5). The doorposts are our hearts. It is only through trusting by faith (emunah) in the shed blood of Yeshua (Jesus), our Passover (Pesach), that we are free from the bondage of sin (Galatians 4:3-5,9; 5:1; 2 Peter [Kefa] 2:19). This is because the blood of Yeshua redeems us from sin (Leviticus [Vayikra] 17:11; Ephesians 1:7; Colossians 1:14; 1 Peter [Kefa] 1:18-19; 1 John [Yochanan] 1:7; Revelation 1:5).

During Passover (Pesach), the head of each household was to take a lamb of the first year on the tenth day of the first month known as Nisan and set it aside until the fourteenth day (Exodus [Shemot] 12:3-6). In the evening of the fourteenth day, at exactly 3:00 p.m., the lamb was to be killed (Exodus [Shemot] 12:6). The blood of the lamb was to be sprinkled on the lintel and two side posts of the household door. The lamb was to be roasted with fire, with bitter herbs, and with unleavened bread, and the entire household was to feast upon the body of the lamb (Exodus [Shemot] 12:7-8). The people were instructed by G-d to eat the lamb with haste and to be dressed and ready to leave Egypt (Mitzrayim) at the midnight hour. This would be the fifteenth day of Nisan (Exodus [Shemot] 12:10-11).

At midnight on that fateful evening in Egypt, death passed through the land. Every house that did not have the token of the blood on the doorposts and lintel suffered the judgment of G-d (Exodus [Shemot] 12:12-15). The Hebrew word for Passover is Pesach, which means “to pass or hover over.” This word speaks to us about two things. First, it shows the passing over in judgment from death and sin to life in Yeshua. Second, it tells us about allowing, by faith (emunah), the blood ofYeshua to hover over our lives and give us divine protection from the evil one (Ha satan).

God’s Commandments (Mitzvotfor Passover (Pesach)

  1. Passover was the beginning of months (Exodus [Shemot] 12:2). Spiritual Application (Halacha). Nisan is the first month of the religious calendar. ReceivingYeshua into our lives is the beginning of a New Covenant (Brit Hadashah) relationship with G-d (Jeremiah [Yermiyahu] 31:31-33; John [Yochanan] 3:5-7; Romans 6:1-4; 2 Corinthians 5:17). Passover is the first of the feasts. Likewise, repenting of our sins (teshuvah) and believing in the shed blood of Yeshua is our first step in our walk (halacha) with G-d.
  2. The lamb was hidden for four days (Exodus [Shemot] 12:3,6). 

    Messianic Fulfillment. G-d commanded Israel to take a lamb on the tenth day of Nisan and set it aside until the fourteenth day. These four days were fulfilled by Yeshua during the Passover (Pesach) week. Remember, Yeshua is the Lamb of G-d (John [Yochanan] 1:29). He entered Jerusalem (Yerushalayim) and went to the temple (Beit HaMikdash), which was the house of G-d, and went on public display there for four days from Nisan 10 to Nisan 14 (Matthew [Mattityahu] 21:1,9-12,17-18,23; 24:1,3; 26:1-5). 

    Eschatologically, these four days that the lamb was hidden is prophetic of the people’s expectations that the Messiah would come 4,000 years from the creation of Adam as part of the 7,000 year plan of G-d to redeem both man and the earth back to how things were in the Garden of Eden (Gan Eden) (Mishnah, San Hedrin 97-98). These four days are prophetic of the Messiah Yeshua being hid from the world and not coming to earth for four days or 4,000 years from the creation of Adam. A day is understood to be prophetic of a thousand years, based upon Psalm (Tehillim) 90:4 and Second Peter (Kefa) 3:8. Linking Psalm 90:4 to each day in creation, G-d ordained each day in creation to be prophetic of a thousand years of time and the entire redemption to take 7,000 years to complete from the fall of man in the Garden of Eden (Genesis [Bereishit] 1:1,5,8,13,19,23,31; 2:1-3).

  3. The lamb was to be without blemish (Exodus [Shemot] 12:5). 

    Messianic Fulfillment. Yeshua was the Lamb of G-d (John [Yochanan] 1:29) without spot or blemish (1 Peter [Kefa] 1:18-20). During the crucifixion week, Yeshua was examined by many in fulfilling this Scripture, including:

    1. The chief priests and elders (Matthew [Mattityahu] 21:23)
    2. Pilate (Matthew [Mattityahu] 27:1-2,11-14,17-26)
    3. Herod (Luke 23:6-12)
    4. Annas the high priest (Cohen HaGadol) (Luke 3:2; John [Yochanan] 18:13,24)
    5. Caiaphas the high priest
    6. (John [Yochanan] 11:49-53; 18:13-14,19-24,28)
    7. Judas (Matthew [Mattityahu] 27:3-10)
    8. The centurion (Matthew [Mattityahu] 27:54)
    9. The repentant thief (Luke 23:39-43).

    When we examine Yeshua, we must conclude also that He was without blot or blemish.

  4. The lamb was of the first year (Exodus [Shemot] 11:4-7; 12:5). 

    Spiritual Application (Halacha). G-d always distinguishes between the believers and the world (Exodus [Shemot] 12:29-30). This can be seen in the examples that follow. The firstborn of both man and beast was to be set aside and given to G-d (Exodus [Shemot] 13:2,11-13). The theme of the firstborn runs throughout the Bible. Cain was set aside for Abel (Genesis [Bereishit] 4:1-8); Ishmael for Isaac (Yitzchak) (Genesis [Bereishit] 16:1,11-12,15; 17:17-19); Esau for Jacob (Ya’akov) (Genesis [Bereishit] 25:19-26; Romans 9:8-13); and Egypt (Mitzrayim) for Israel. 

    Spiritually, G-d gave us these examples to teach us that the firstborn after the flesh (that which is natural) is set aside to bring forth the firstborn after the spirit (that which is spiritual). In this process, G-d distinguishes between the first or natural birth and the second or spiritual birth. The first birth constitutes us as sinners and the second birth makes us believers and children of G-d (John [Yochanan] 1:12; 3:1-7; Romans 9:8-13; 1 Corinthians 15:22; 15:45-47). 

    Messianic Fulfillment. Yeshua was the firstborn of Mary (Miryam) naturally, and the firstborn of G-d spiritually (Matthew [Mattityahu] 1:21-25; Romans 8:29; Colossians 1:15,18; Revelation 3:14).

  5. It is a male (Exodus [Shemot] 12:5). Spiritual Application (Halacha). It was through one man’s sin that sin came into the world (Romans 5:12; 1 Timothy 2:12-14). Because Adam, the first male, sinned, so a male, Yeshua, must die to atone for that sin (Romans 5:17-19).
  6. It is a lamb for a house (Exodus [Shemot] 12:3-4). 

    Spiritual Application (Halacha). G-d’s intention was that all (households) experience salvation. The lamb was a lamb for the house. By believing in the Messiah Yeshua, we become members of the household of faith (Galatians 6:10; Ephesians 2:19). Salvation for a household is available to all who believe in the Messiah, Yeshua, the Lamb of G-d (Genesis [Bereishit] 7:1; 18:16-19; Joshua [Yehoshua] 24:15; John [Yochanan] 4:46-54; Luke 19:5-10; Acts 16:15,31; 18:3,8). 

    Messianic Fulfillment. There is a progressive revelation of the Lamb in the Bible. First, there is a lamb for a house (Exodus [Shemot] 12:3-4; second, a lamb for a nation (John [Yochanan] 11:49-52); and finally, a lamb for the world (John [Yochanan] 1:29). 

    Genesis (Bereishit) 22 is known in Hebrew as the Akeidah, or the binding of the sacrifice. In Genesis (Bereishit) 22:7, Isaac (Yitzchak) asked, “Where is the lamb?” The lamb that Isaac (Yitzchak) asked about is Yeshua (Isaiah [Yeshayahu] 53:7).

  7. A Passover (Pesach) lamb was to be killed between the evenings (Exodus [Shemot] 12:6). 

    The biblical day goes from evening to evening, from sundown to sundown, which is roughly 6:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. (Genesis [Bereishit] 1:5,8,13,19,23,31). The day (6:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.) is divided into two 12-hour periods. The evening runs from 6:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. The morning runs from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Each 12-hour period is divided into two smaller portions. From 6:00 a.m. to noon is the morning part of the day. From noon to 6:00 p.m. is the evening part of the day. The phrase, “between the evening” (from Exodus [Shemot] 12:6) refers to the period of the day that goes from noon to 6:00 p.m., which is exactly 3:00 p.m. This would be the ninth hour of the day, counting from 6:00 a.m. 

    The Biblical Day

    Evening Morning |---------------------------|---------------------------|  6 p.m. 6 a.m. 6 p.m. Morning Evening |--------------|------------| 6 a.m. Noon 6 p.m. |---------------------|-----| 6 a.m. 3 p.m. 6 p.m. |---------------------| The 9th hour of the day = 3 p.m.

    Messianic Fulfillment. Yeshua died at the ninth hour of the day (Matthew [Mattityahu] 27:45-50). This would be exactly 3:00 p.m. (the ninth hour, counting from 6:00 a.m.).

  8. The whole assembly shall kill it (Exodus [Shemot] 12:6). 

    Spiritual Application (Halacha). Every person who has ever lived on planet Earth and sinned is guilty of killing Yeshua because He died for all sinners (Romans 3:10,23). No human being had the power to take His life (John [Yochanan] 10:17-18). Therefore, Yeshua laid down His life for us by His own free will. There has been a misplaced accusation over the years that the Jews were the people who killedYeshua. As a result, they have suffered horrendously over the centuries. To my beloved Jewish friends who are reading this book, I ask you with sincere repentance (teshuvah): Please forgive those who are ignorant of the truth. The truth is that I killedYeshua, as did everyone who ever lived on planet Earth, because He died for my sins! (Romans 5:8,12) 

    Messianic Fulfillment. A whole congregation of people was involved in the death ofYeshua. The Gospels of Matthew (Mattityahu), Mark, Luke, and John (Yochanan) show how the Sanhedrin, the priests, the Romans, and the people of Israel all clamored for the crucifixion of Yeshua and for His blood to be shed (Matthew [Mattityahu] 27:17,20-22,25; Acts 4:26-28).

  9. The blood must be applied to the door (Exodus [Shemot] 12:7,13,22). 

    Spiritual Application (Halacha). Those who believe in the Messiah are the house of G-d (Ephesians 2:19; I Timothy 3:15; Hebrews 3:6). The only way into the house of G-d is through the shed blood of the Messiah Yeshua, who is the Door (John [Yochanan] 10:7-9).

  10. The body of the lamb must be eaten (Exodus [Shemot] 12:8-10). 

    Spiritual Application (Halacha). Both the body and blood of the lamb speak of the body and blood of Yeshua (Matthew [Mattityahu] 26:26-28). We spiritually eat of the body of the Lamb (Yeshua) when we eat of His body (today represented by the bread), which spiritually is the Word of G-d (Luke 11:3; 4:4). By following the Word of G-d and obeying the commandments (mitzvot) of G-d with sincerity of heart, we eat (spiritually) of His body.

    1. It must be eaten the same night (Exodus [Shemot] 12:8). Yeshua was crucified, suffered, and died the same night.
    2. It must be eaten with unleavened bread (Exodus [Shemot] 12:8). Leaven speaks of sin (1 Corinthians 5:6-8). Unleavened bread is without sin. As believers, we are instructed to live holy (unleavened) lives before G-d (Leviticus [Vayikra] 11:44; 19:2; 1 Peter [Kefa] 1:15-16).
    3. It must be eaten with bitter herbs (Exodus [Shemot] 12:8).

      Spiritual Application (Halacha). To those who have accepted the Messiah into their lives, bitter herbs speak of two things. First, they speak of the bondage and burdens we experience while living in this world (a type of Egypt) before we accepted Yeshua into our lives. This burden of sin is placed on us by satan (Ha satan) when we yield to his lies and deception, and then sin because of our own evil desires. Second, the bitter herbs speak of the bitter things that come into our lives after we accept Yeshua and attempt to follow Him on a daily basis.

      Messianic Fulfillment. For Yeshua, dying on the tree was a bitter experience because He had to pay for man’s sin with His sinless life.

    4. The lamb must be roasted in fire (Exodus [Shemot] 12:8).

      Spiritual Application (Halacha). Fire speaks of judgment, refining, and purification. Our faith (emunah) is judged and tested by fire so it can be refined and purified and come forth as pure gold (Zechariah 13:9; James [Ya’akov] 1:12; 1 Peter [Kefa] 1:7; Revelation 3:18).

    5. It must not be sodden with water. The gospel (basar) of Yeshuamust not be watered down (Mark 7:9,13; 2 Timothy 3:5).
    6. The head, legs, and other parts of the lamb must be eaten.

    Spiritual Application (Halacha). Those who believe in Yeshua must feed on the mind of Yeshua (Philippians 2:5; 1 Corinthians 2:16; Romans 12:2; Ephesians 4:21-23; Hebrews 8:10). The legs speak of our walk (halacha) (Colossians 2:6). How are the believers in Yeshua to walk? (See Romans 6:4; 8:1,4; 2 Corinthians 5:7; Galatians 5:16; Ephesians 2:10; 5:2,8; Colossians 1:10, 4:5; 1 Thessalonians 4:1; 1 John [Yochanan] 1:7; 2 John 1:6; 3 John 1:4.)

  11. The lamb must be eaten in haste (Exodus [Shemot] 12:11). 

    Spiritual Application (Halacha). Bible believers must be quick to leave Egypt (the influences of the world) and run toward the life that is in the Messiah (Luke 19:5-6).

    1. It must be eaten with our loins girded (Exodus [Shemot] 12:11). Our loins being girded speaks about our hearts’ desire to eagerly serve and obey G-d. Our spiritual loins are the truth of the Word of G-d (Ephesians 6:14). Scriptures that speak about our loins being girded include the following: First Kings (Melachim) 18:46; Second Kings (Melachim) 4:29; 9:1; Jeremiah (Yermiyahu) 1:17; Luke 12:35; Ephesians 6:14; First Peter (Kefa) 1:13.
    2. Shoes must be on our feet (Exodus [Shemot] 12:11). Shoes on our feet speaks about our walk with God. Scriptures that speak about shoes being on our feet include the following: Isaiah [Yeshayahu] 52:7; Nahum [Nachum] 1:15; Romans 10:15; Ephesians 6:15.
    3. A staff must be in our hand (Exodus [Shemot] 12:11). A staff in our hand speaks about the believer’s authority in the Kingdom of G-d by the name of Yeshua (Matthew [Mattityahu] 28:18-20). Scriptures that speak about a staff being in our hand include the following: Genesis (Bereishit) 38:17-18; Exodus (Shemot) 14:16; Judges (Shoftim) 6:21; First Samuel (Sh ‘muwel) 17:39-40; Second Samuel (Sh ‘muwel) 3:29; Second Kings (Melachim) 4:29; 18:21; Psalm (Tehillim) 23:4; Isaiah (Yeshayahu) 10:24; 14:5; Mark 6:7-8.
  12. It is the L-rd’s Passover (Exodus [Shemot] 12:11). 

    Spiritual Application (Halacha). If we follow Yeshua with all of our hearts, we will pass from death to life, and from judgment to divine protection (John [Yochanan] 5:24; 1 John [Yochanan] 3:14; 2 Corinthians 5:17; Psalm [Tehillim] 91).

  13. It is a memorial (Exodus [Shemot] 12:14; Luke 22:1,7-8, 13-15,19). 

    Spiritual Application (Halacha). Passover (Pesach) is a memorial or a remembrance (Luke 22:1,7-8,13-15,19). There are two elements of remembrance:

    1. G-d remembers us (Genesis [Bereishit] 8:1; 9:1, 5-16; 19:29; 30:22; Exodus [Shemot] 2:24-25; 3:1; 6:2,5;
    2. 32:1-3,7,11,13-14; Leviticus [Vayikra] 26:14,31-33,38-45; Numbers [Bamidbar] 10:1-2,9; Psalm [Tehillim] 105:7-8,42-43; 112:6). In fact, G-d has a book of remembrance (Exodus [Shemot] 32:32-33; Malachi 3:16-18; Revelation 3:5; 20:11-15; 21:1,27).
    3. We must remember G-d (Exodus [Shemot] 13:3; 20:8; Deuteronomy [Devarim] 7:17-19; 8:18; 16:3; Numbers [Bamidbar] 15:37-41).
  14. It is to be observed at the going down of the sun (Deuteronomy [Devarim] 16:2,6). This was fulfilled by Yeshua at His crucifixion (Matthew [Mattityahu] 27:45-46).
  15. It is the place where G-d would put His name (Deuteronomy [Devarim] 16:2,6). 

    Messianic Fulfillment. The place where G-d has put His name is Jerusalem (Yerushalayim) (2 Kings [Melachim] 21:4). Yeshua was crucified in Jerusalem (Yerushalayim).

  16. Not a bone of the lamb was to be broken (Exodus [Shemot] 12:43-46). 

    Messianic Fulfillment. Not a bone of Yeshua was broken on the tree (John [Yochanan] 19:33).

  17. There was to be an explanation of the service (Exodus [Shemot] 12:25-28). 

    Messianic Fulfillment. Yeshua explained each part of the Passover (Pesach) as He did the service (Luke 22:14-20; 1 Corinthians 11:23-26).

  18. The Egyptians were spoiled at the Exodus (Exodus [Shemot] 12:31-36). 

    Messianic Fulfillment. Satan was spoiled when Yeshua entered hell and rose again (Colossians 2:15).

  19. You must be circumcised to eat the Passover (Exodus [Shemot] 12:48; Joshua [Yehoshua] 5:2-10). 

    Spiritual Application (Halacha). The physical act of circumcision was only a picture of the inward or spiritual circumcision that G-d wanted us to have (Romans 2:28-29; 1 Corinthians 15:46; 2 Corinthians 4:18). God has always desired for His people to be circumcised in the heart (Deuteronomy [Devarim] 10:12-16; 1 Corinthians 7:18-19; Galatians 2:3; 5:2-3; 6:12-15; Ephesians 2:11-13).

  20. The Passover (Pesach) feast was to be a holy convocation, and no work was to be done (Exodus [Shemot] 12:16). Spiritual Application (Halacha). A believer finds true rest in ceasing from his own works and resting in the finished work of Yeshua, G-d’s Passover (Pesach) Lamb (Genesis [Bereishit] 2:1-2; Matthew [Mattityahu] 11:28-30; John [Yochanan] 17:1-4; 19:30; Hebrews 3:14-19; 4:1-10).
  21. The Passover (Pesach) must be killed outside the gates of the city (Deuteronomy [Devarim] 16:5). 

    Messianic Fulfillment. Yeshua was crucified outside of the city walls of Jerusalem (Yerushalayim) at a place called Golgotha (John [Yochanan] 19:16-19; Hebrews 13:10-13).

  22. There is healing power in the lamb (Exodus [Shemot] 15:26). 

    Messianic Fulfillment. Yeshua is the Healer sent from G-d (Psalm [Tehillim] 105:36-38; Isaiah [Yeshayahu] 53:1-5; 1 Peter [Kefa] 2:24; 1 Corinthians 11:26-30).

  23. The Exodus was on eagle’s wings (Exodus [Shemot] 19:4). 

    Scriptures associated with this are Deuteronomy (Devarim) 32:9-13; Isaiah (Yeshayahu) 31:5; 40:31; Luke 17:33-37; Revelation 12:6,14.

  24. They sang a song of rejoicing to the L-rd (Exodus [Shemot] 15:1,19-21). 

    Spiritual Application (Halacha). Whenever a believer experiences and understands the meaning of Passover (Pesach), there is a spirit of rejoicing to the L-rd for his or her deliverance from sin, and for experiencing the newness of life in the Messiah. Note: The Passover Seder, which is the service and meal that celebrates the Passover, always ends with songs of rejoicing and the declaration: Next year in Jerusalem! This can be seen in Mark 14:26.

  25. Israel is the firstborn of G-d (Exodus [Shemot] 4:22-23). 

    Spiritual Application (Halacha). All those who accept the Messiah Yeshua are called the firstborn of G-d even as Yeshua is called the firstborn of G-d (Romans 8:29; Colossians 1:15,18; Hebrews 12:22-24).’

Did Yeshua have a Passover Meal?

Today there are 15 steps in the Passover Seder. In order to understand if Yeshua had a Passover Seder, we need to know what is done during a Passover Seder. Therefore, I will list the 15 steps to the Passover Seder and explain what is done in each part. By doing this, we can determine ifYeshua had a Passover Seder prior to His crucifixion.

Before I begin to explain the 15 steps to the Passover Seder, I would like to comment on one aspect of it. During the Seder, a cup of wine is brought forth with this blessing: “Blessed are You, L-rd our G-d, King of the Universe, who creates the fruit of the vine.” During the Feast of Passover (Pesach), Yeshua said, “I am the true vine” (John [Yochanan] 15:1). Isaiah (Yeshayahu) tells us that G-d had a vineyard and that vineyard was Israel (Isaiah [Yeshayahu] 5:7). The choice vine planted in the vineyard was the Messiah (Isaiah [Yeshayahu] 5:2).

THE SEDER SERVICE

  1. Kaddesh and the first cup. 

    During the Kaddesh, the first of four cups of wine is blessed and drunk. This first cup of wine is called the cup of sanctification. Before the wine is drunk, a blessing is recited: “Blessed are You, L-rd our G-d, King of the Universe, who creates the fruit of the vine.”

  2. U-r’chatz (the washing of hands). 

    No blessing is recited.

  3. Karpas (this word means “parsley, green herbs”). 

    This refers to the place in the Seder when the celebrants dip a green vegetable in salt water and eat it (John [Yochanan] 13:26-27). The oldest will sit on the left side of the table and will dip the sop. From this, we can conclude that Judas was the oldest disciple. The youngest will sit on the right side of the table. Benjamin (Benyamin) was the youngest of Jacob’s (Ya’akov’s) sons. Benjamin means “son of my right hand” in Hebrew.

  4. Yachatz (the breaking of the bread). 

    The middle piece of three pieces of bread, or matzot, is ceremonially broken in two.Matzah (plural is matzot) is unleavened bread. The larger piece is wrapped in a napkin and set aside as the afikomen, the matzah that is eaten at the end of the meal. This can be seen in Luke 22:19.

  5. The Maggid (the telling of the story of the Exodus). 

    The Maggid concludes with the second cup of wine, which is called the cup of wrath.Yeshua partook of this second cup at the Garden of Gethsemane (Luke 22:42-44). In telling the story of the Exodus, each person is to see the Exodus as if G-d personally redeemed them! This is based upon Exodus (Shemot) 13:8.

  6. Rachtzah (the washing of hands with a blessing).
