Our Passover Lamb

As I prepare for Passover, I'm remembering the first time I attended a seder...about twenty years ago.  I'd just begun to learn about the Jewish roots of Christianity and was invited to attend the service at the home of a friend.  How vividly I remember holding the matzah in my hand, looking at the stripes and the holes.  Our host explained that the matzah is a picture of the Messiah Yeshua.  He was without sin (no leaven) and He was pierced for our sins, and took stripes for our healing.

Each year when we observe our seder, I hold the matzah and remember our redemption, and I thank Him. No more blood has to be shed.  He became sin for us so that we would not have to be punished.  I am grateful.

Hashem commanded us to observe this feast, and Yeshua obeyed.  On the night before He was crucified, He and His disciples held a seder.  That night, He said, "Do this (seder) in remembrance of Me."  If you are able to attend a Messianic seder in your area this week, you will be so blessed.


We will be singing this song at our seder tomorrow night.




I hope you enjoy the song list that includes the songs we traditionally sing on Passover - Eliyahu and Dayanu.  It also contains some silly songs that I think will tickle your funny bone (i.e. the puppets).

Our seder will be tomorrow afternoon, and I'll share photos and tell you about it in my next post. 

 I pray Passover blessings to you all.

  1. chag pesach sameach, Gail. We will be hosting a Seder in our home tonight and I learned my unbelieving girlfriend wants to come! We are excited to hold that matzah and meditate on the piercing and stripes of Jesus. Thank you for the lovely music you provide! I study with it in the background sometimes!
