Exodus 12-Unleavened Bread

And this day shall be unto you for a memorial; and ye shall keep it a feast to the LORD throughout your generations; ye shall keep it a feast by an ordinance for ever. Exodus 12:14

During this time God instituted the Passover Feast to commemorate this day forever. Now most Christians would say this is not relevant to them anymore, but when you compare the Passover Feast to Communion, they are tied together. As I believe when Jesus commemorated Communion, this was the fulfillment of the Passover Feast

Think about the Lords Supper, when did Jesus institute this? It was during a Passover Feast. All the elements that are part of Communion, the Bread and Wine, are present here in the Passover Feast

Seven days shall ye eat unleavened bread; even the first day ye shall put away leaven out of your houses: for whosoever eateth leavened bread from the first day until the seventh day, that soul shall be cut off from Israel. Exodus 12:15

Typically during the Passover Feast and Communion, you are to use “Unleavened Bread.  First as God commanded the bread is to be unleavened , meaning without yeast, why? Because this is symbolic of the sinless Lamb of God. Leaven is often symbolic of sin in the Bible. Communion is about the blood of the Lamb cleansing you from your sin, that Lamb is Jesus Christ

And in the first day there shall be an holy convocation, and in the seventh day there shall be an holy convocation to you; no manner of work shall be done in them, save that which every man must eat, that only may be done of you. And ye shall observe the feast of unleavened bread; for in this selfsame day have I brought your armies out of the land of Egypt: therefore shall ye observe this day in your generations by an ordinance for ever. Exodus 12:16-17

The Passover Feast lasted 7 days, notice 7 is the number of completion. During this time , Jews would remember and commemorate this event of the Passover and the Exodus story. Jesus fulfilled all the feasts, he is the Messiah promised throughout the Old Testament. Therefor Communion is a time for us to commemorate our Exodus from the slavery of sin and death through Christ

For the LORD will pass through to smite the Egyptians; and when he seeth the blood upon the lintel, and on the two side posts, the LORD will pass over the door, and will not suffer the destroyer to come in unto your houses to smite you. Exodus 12:23

Just as God commanded the Israelites to get an unblemished Lamb and put the blood on their door posts, then death will Passover every family that is covered by the blood of the Lamb. This is the same for us today through Christ. Those who are covered by the Lamb of God, will inherit eternal life

The important question as the old hymn says “Are you washed by the blood of the Lamb”? So as you study the Exodus and the Passover Feast, think about Christ and how these things are foreshadows of Him, Amen!
