Passover is a great time of year and a feast of the Lord. Passover begins at sundown on April 14th. All Jewish feasts and holidays begin at sundown and end at sundown.  According to Leviticus 23 we are to celebrate Passover throughout all the generations to commemorate the  redemption of the Jews from bondage and slavery under Pharaoh of Egypt. The Jewish tradition is to hold a Seder, actually 2 Seders. Seder means order, and we serve a God of order. The tradition is to mark the freedom of the Jews after 400 years of slavery. Freedom which came about by God through the Prophet Moses. Moses was not supposed to have survived due to the order of Pharaoh to have all of the male children slain upon birth. However Moses’ parents floated him down the Nile and wouldn’t it be just like God to place Moses at the very location where his death sentence originated. Yes at the palace of the Pharaoh. Moses was raised in the palace and was well educated and cared for just like a son. When Moses was 40 years of age he witnessed a horrible event; a servant of Pharaoh beat a Hebrew man for working to slow. Moses in return killed the Egyptian and had to flee Egypt. He then came across a family from Midyan , married and had children. He became a shepherd and lived in the desert for another 40 years. Then Moses met God, not as we might today but I think you all know the story of Moses and the burning bush. The bush was on fire but was not burning. As Moses approached, he heard the voice of God telling him to take off his shoes because he was on holy ground. Moses is told that he had been chosen to go back to Egypt and redeem the Hebrew people. Moses is like,” Me? I think you have the wrong guy, I mean I don’t even speak that well and perhaps you can find someone more qualified”. Imagine this, God is telling Moses that he is chosen for this task and Moses has the chutzpah (nerve) to say “no thanks”. I don’t mean to get personal but how many times in your life has God call upon you and you did not respond. Well back to our main story. Moses wants to know who is this God so if he does go to Egypt, he could tell the people who sent him. Well according to scripture in Exodus 3:14 God said to Moses, “I Am Who I Am. this is what you are to say to the Israelites: I AM has sent me to You.” Moses receives further instructions and the aid of his brother Aaron.

Moses of course returns to Egypt with God on his side. He confronts Pharaoh, the man who raised him, and tells him to “let my people go”, but Pharaoh refuses. Moses, with the aid of God, proceeds with various plagues on the Egyptian people and their land in order to convince Pharaoh that he should let the Israelites leave Egypt. Unfortunately this only angers Pharaoh and he makes things more harsh for the enslaved Hebrew people. Moses, with the instruction of God, continues to bring plagues upon Egypt. Here are a list of the plagues: “blood, frogs, lice, death of cattle, flies, hail, boils, locusts, darkness and finally death of the first born. Moses warns the Israelites that in order to avoid the final plague, as they have all the others, they must place the blood of  spotless lamb on the door posts and lentils of their homes. This way ADONAI will Pass-Over the homes of the Israelites and only the Egyptian children will be effected by this plague. The story of the Exodus is well documented in the Bible book of the same name.

Red Sea

This final plague, resulting in the death of the Pharaohs firstborn son, put an end to the bondage of the Israelites. Pharaoh relented  and let the people go. Now, the Israelites were in a big hurry to leave before Pharaoh could change his mind. They were in such a hurry that when preparing bread they did not have time for the bread to rise; the result unleavened bread, what today we call Matzah. They were on their way but came to a large body of water, the Sea of Suf. The Israelites started to get angry at Moses for leading them to this dead end. And then the worst thing imaginable happened: the Israelites saw Pharaoh’s army approaching. Apparently he changed his mind. As if they had not witnessed enough miracles for a lifetime, God was not done. He had Moses stand and lift his staff over the Sea and lo and behold the sea parted with great walls of water on both sides and dry ground in between. Moses had the Israelites go down into the now dry land and cross over to the other side. Pharaoh’s men chased after them into the sea following the same path. When they were well on their way, God made the waters come down upon the soldiers and drowned them. This was an amazing miracle and all of the Hebrew people saw the power of their God.

This is the Jewish story of Passover. Many miracles took place from the birth and saving of baby Moses, the scene at the burning bush, the many plagues that effected only the Egyptians while the Hebrew people were safe in nearby Goshen, the blood of the lambs to protect the Hebrew firstborn and the parting of the Red Sea. Yes, this is an amazing story of God’s love for His children, God’s saving grace and mercy, and the redemption of the Hebrew people because God had promised Abraham that one day the children of Israel would be led to the promised land. Now there is much more to this story and during Passover, the Seder is the main event. The retelling of the story and the elements used to help recall the plagues and the miracles are just some of what occurs each Passover for Jewish families all over the world.

This is Part one of the Passover story, because there is simply too much to tell. The next part will focus on the fact that this is NOT JUST A JEWISH STORY, BUT A YESHUA STORY, NOT JUST FOR JEWS BUT FOR ALL BELIEVERS. It is my desire to teach the true meaning of Passover and how Jesus is so much a part of it as well as end time prophecy. So hold on tight and get ready to learn the real and true meaning of Passover. I pray you are excited to know the whole truth about Passover as excited as I am to tell it.

  1. Thank you for this teaching, Rabbi, Eric. The Passover may be a Jewish tradition but it is also a reminder for believers everywhere that God is true to his promises. Just as he saved his people from the devastation and plagues sent to the rebellious Egyptians, he can and will be with us to the end of time. Though believers have struggles and problems in this world, they are all being worked out according to his plan for our good. That is a promise we must always remember.

    • Marianne, you are right, God always keeps His promises. In part 2 I will reveal many things about Passover, things I teach to Church groups every year and they are amazed. I am excited about this season and what is truly represents. Blessings.
