Each year, Jews around the world celebrate a festival called Passover where they remember their ancestors’ Exodus from Egypt and freedom from slavery. For Christians, the Passover takes on added meaning as we recall not only the Israelites’ Exodus from slavery but also our freedom in Christ. Jesus is the fulfillment of God’s promise—the Lamb of God who takes away our sins, and it was during His last celebration of the Passover meal (the Last Supper) that Jesus instituted the Eucharist.
