John, Whitney and I had a very awesome Monday night! We took part in a Passover Seder.

I absolutely love Passover, because you get to understand Christ so much more! We were at a Messianic Passover celebration led by a Messianic Rabbi. It was all about Jesus (called by his Hebrew name, Yeshua, at this service) and about how Jesus paid it ALL for us!
This is the unleavened bread used during Passover. (Thank you Whit for holding it up again for me! Participating in Passover and taking pictures is hard!) We put it up to the light ... so the holes and stripes shine through. The holes--piercings-- represent the nails Jesus took for us, and the stripes (as seen on the opposite side of this bread) reminds us of His stripes by which we are healed. Wow. That was enough to get you right there.
This was the Seder plate. The parsley dipped in the middle cup of salt water reminding us of the bitter life in Egypt. That brown looking stuff is kharoset (mixture of apples, honey and nuts - very good!) is there to remind you that even the most bitter circumstances can be sweetened by the HOPE WE HAVE IN GOD!
We had such a fun time --- especially at our table! It was all young people our age and most had never done a Passover Seder before. We had a neat time getting to know each other....and remembering that Jesus is the Lamb of God - our Passover Lamb - who was sacrificed to take away the sin of the world! He is our Creator, Deliverer, Redeemer and Savior!

But he was pierced for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed. Isaiah 53:5
