Then came the day of Unleavened Bread on which the Passover lamb had to be sacrificed.8 Jesus sent Peter and John, saying, “Go and make preparations for us to eat the Passover.” (Luke 22:7-8)

The Old Testament explained how the Passover came to be celebrated. The Israelites were leaving Egypt. God commanded them to sacrifice a lamb and put its blood over the door post. The final plague on Egypt would pass by all of them because of this sign. The lamb was to be eaten and nothing left. God command them to keep this celebration as a sign of His covenant with them.

The Holy Bible teaches that Jesus gave instructions to His disciples to prepare for this celebration. He would eat this celebration meal, His last, with them. Animals were made as sacrifices for sins by the priesthood in the Old Covenant. He was preparing for the final sacrifice for sins. He was to be the Passover Lamb of God and began a New Covenant. Jesus was acknowledging that a sacrifice for sins is necessary and willingly took on the role.

Challenge: Believer, this is the season to commemorate God’s plan of salvation through His only Son, Jesus. Jesus is the Lamb that takes away the sins of the world! Amen!
