The pamphlet entitled, “Christ in the Passover,” issued by Rose Publishing provides the Old Testament account of the Israelites enslavement in Egypt. God heard their cries for mercy and responded through Moses. Moses sought the freedom of the Israelites and demanding their freedom from Pharaoh. Pharaoh being stubborn refused choosing to continue to increase the mistreatment of the Israelites. God punished Egypt with ten plagues due to Pharaoh’s harden heart.
During the last plague, God provided His people with a means to escape the destruction – the blood of a perfect lamb in exchange for the first born of the family. Not only does this pamphlet provides the origins of Passover within the Old Testament but the Passover celebration, Passover symbolism with the anticipation of Jesus’ works, the Passover celebration significance in modern day, and a comparison between Jesus and the Passover lamb.
The Passover celebration is explained in depth and provides a modified version of the celebration for Christians. Traditional recipes used in the Passover celebration are included. I believe this pamphlet provides a fundamental understanding of the Passover. It would be great for Bible Study, small group, or Sunday School. I would like to try the recipes and share it with my Sunday School class as we discuss the importance of celebrating the Passover.
