2. OUR PASSOVER
The second awe-inspiring historical event is all about a lifetime. And especially, the culmination of the earthly lifetime of Jesus of Nazareth.
Jesus walked the land of Israel for His final three or so years doing the work the Father had sent Him to do.
And just as the Old Covenant lamb had to be inspected for purity, for Jesus the Lamb of God, this was His time of examination.
When that was almost over He and His Disciples kept their last Old Covenant Feast of Passover, but with a difference.
He was about to transform it by fulfilling it and therefore replacing it. This became The Lord's Supper:
"He took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying,
'This is My body which is given for you;
do this in remembrance of Me.'
"Likewise He also took the cup after supper, saying,
'This cup is the new covenant in My blood,
which is shed for you'",
The Believers who would later be called a "holy nation" (1 Peter 2'9) would celebrate it according to His New Covenant Kingdom of God.
Jesus' sacrifice was once for all. Now every and any one in the whole world who will believe will be "passed over" on the day of judgement.
The culmination of Jesus' life is His sacrifice for all who will believe: It's Our Sacrifice, and the foundation of the New Covenant Kingdom of God.
