Christ in the Passover

The story of Jesus Christ in the Passover week is about God's love for us and men's deception.

The Priests plotted to kill Jesus Christ in the Passover week.

Matthew 26:1-5 (King James Version)

1. And it came to pass, when Jesus had finished all these sayings, he said unto his disciples,

2. Ye know that after two days is the feast of the passover, and the Son of man is betrayed to be crucified.

3. Then assembled together the chief priests, and the scribes, and the elders of the people, unto the palace of the high priest, who was called Caiaphas,

4. And consulted that they might take Jesus by subtilty, and kill him.

5. But they said, Not on the feast day, lest there be an uproar among the people.

Judas Betrayal

Luke 22:3-7
(King James Version)

3. Then entered Satan into Judas surnamed Iscariot, being of the number of the twelve.

4. And he went his way, and communed with the chief priests and captains, how he might betray him unto them.

5. And they were glad, and covenanted to give him money.

6. And he promised, and sought opportunity to betray him unto them in the absence of the multitude.

7. Then came the day of unleavened bread, when the passover must be killed.

Judas betrayed Christ in the Passover feast.

Luke 22:7-8, 13-14, 21
(King James Version)

7. Then came the day of unleavened bread, when the passover must be killed.

8. And he sent Peter and John, saying, Go and prepare us the passover, that we may eat.

13. And they went, and found as he had said unto them: and they made ready the passover.

14. And when the hour was come, he sat down, and the twelve apostles with him.

21. But, behold, the hand of him that betrayeth me is with me on the table.

The bread and the blood represent Jesus Christ in the Passover. The bread and the blood are also represented in the communion service.  Also, Jesus is the Passover Lamb of God.

Luke 22:15-20
(King James Version)

15. And he said unto them, With desire I have desired to eat this passover with you before I suffer:

16. For I say unto you, I will not any more eat thereof, until it be fulfilled in the kingdom of God.

17. And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and said, Take this, and divide it among yourselves:

18. For I say unto you, I will not drink of the fruit of the vine, until the kingdom of God shall come.

19. And he took bread, and gave thanks, and brake it, and gave unto them, saying, This is my body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of me.

20. Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood, which is shed for you.

John 1:36 (King James Version)

36. And looking upon Jesus as he walked, he saith, Behold the Lamb of God!

Christ In The Passover - The Lamb Slain

Jesus Christ in the Passover week became the Lamb slain for everyone, and reveals Gods love for us.

Isaiah 53:4-8 (King James Version)

4. Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.

5. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

6. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.

7. He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.

8. He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken.

Christ in the Passover week ended the need for animal sacrifices for sin. The great sacrifice on the cross of Christ in the Passover week ended the need of the sacrificial system, which was why the veil in the temple was torn when he died.

The sacrificial death of Christ in the Passover week is God's gift to us.

And his presence at the right hand of God as our High Priest also ended the need for any human priest to intercede on our behalf.

Now we can boldly approach God ourselves.
