LOCATION: Room 108, beginning January 14, 2018
A study of Passover in the Bible, showing the relation of the Exodus event to the Lord’s Supper and Christ’s redeeming death, with a look at the development of traditional observances in the early Church and in Rabbinic Judaism.
This year, Passover coincides precisely with Holy Week, falling on Good Friday. This class will trace the theme of Passover through the Bible–from the Exodus event, through the books of history and the prophets, up to the Gospels and Epistles. It will deal with the Lord’s Supper being instituted at a Passover meal, and Paul’s teaching that Christ is our Passover Lamb. To address modern-day issues, this study would also look at religious history–how the early Jewish-Gentile Church “Pascha” observance changed to “Easter,” and how the “Seder” ceremony evolved in the unbelieving Rabbinic Jewish community (and was adopted and changed by Messianic Jews.)
